After & Before Care

ABC is an extended childcare program available for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8. It is provided to Academy families only and staffed by Academy teachers and other qualified staffers. Parents can rest assured that their children will be cared for by staff members who specialize in education, bringing their exceptional experience working with the Academy’s student body to the program.

ABC begins the first day of school (September 3, 2013) and ends the afternoon of the last full day of school.

All children must have a registration form on file before they can attend ABC, and so we encourage all Academy families to complete the online registration form in case a last-minute need arises.

We offer a variety of packages with flexible timetables and payment options.

Morning ABC
During Morning ABC, your child may bring a snack and will engage in quiet activities such as reading, studying, board games or puzzles. This service operates from 7 to 8 a.m. each morning, allowing parents an early drop-off before classes start.

Students can drop in for both the morning and afternoon programs, though we require that parents contact External Programs (773-881-6700 ext. 234) or the Lower School office (773-881-7355) by 2:30 p.m. the day of use.

All Drop-In time is billed in full hours and must be paid at time of pickup. The cost is $10 per hour, or $8 per hour if you prepay 10 hours in advance, which you can use at any time.

Note: After 6 p.m., late fees apply at a rate of $3 per minute.
