PS 11 Programs Inc. was founded in 1997 by PTA members and parents of PS 11 students. PS 11 Programs Inc. is not affiliated with the New York City Department of Education. It is a not-for-profit Community Based Organization that works in partnership with PS 11 to provide academic support and enrichment opportunities to students every school day from dismissal until 6:00 p.m. Our program serves over 750 students in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.
The program offers 2 sessions of classes each day from 3:15-4:30 and from 4:30-6:00. There are a variety of activities designed to give your child a well-rounded experience in our program, which will help them develop physically, academically and socially. The activities offered include art, music, theater, sports, dance, computers and homework. Children are grouped by age (K-2nd, 3rd-5th), and sometimes by level and ability.
Dismissal from the program is at 4:30 and 6:00. We also provide an “extended” dismissal at 5:00 p.m. to accommodate families’ work schedules. Children who are signed up for the 5:00 dismissal will not attend a class but will be supervised in the cafeteria and will be able to play games, do their homework or read. A limited number of seats are available for this and the dismissal time will be strictly enforced.
Our program is fee-based and the cost is $17.50 per class. We do offer a reduced rate of $10.50 per class if your family meets the federal guidelines for free lunch. In order to recieve the reduced rate, families who meet these guidelines must also complete the “Eligibility for Reduced Price Afterschool” on the Afterschool Enrollment Form (page 6.) Full and partial scholarships are also available. Applications are available in the afterschool office and are given based on need and/or teacher recommendation.
We offer a drop-in program as well. The cost is $22.50 per child for 1 session (pickup at 4:30), $40 for 2 sessions (pick up at 6:00). Payment must be received on or before the day of the drop-in. After you submit the registration form, you will be redirected to Paypal for the option to pay online. Close or cancel the Paypal window if you prefer to pay be check, cash or credit card in person. Your form will still be submitted and you will receive a confirmation email.
We accept cash, check and all credit cards. There is a 3% handling fee for all credit card transactions. The minimum credit card amount is $25.00. Payment can also be paid on Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or via Chase QuickPay or CitiPop Money to email@example.com (there is no charge.)
A Parent Handbook outlining our policies and procedures is available.
