Afterschool at PS 11

About Afterschool

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 the end of the school day-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 from 4:15-4:30 and 5:45-6:00.  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 $21 per class.  We do offer a reduced rate of $14.50 per class if your family meets the federal guidelines for free lunch.  Full and partial scholarships are also available.

We offer a drop-in program as well.  The cost is $30 per child for 1 session (pickup at 4:30), $50 for 2 sessions (pick up at 6:00).  Payment must be received on or before the day of the drop-in.

Visit to register for all programs.  You must create an account prior to registration.

Parent Handbook outlining our policies and procedures is available.
