Friday Arrival & Dismissal Info

Nursery & Kindergarten Friday Programs
  • Nursery & Kindergarten Friday programs begin at 1pm
  • We hold an arrival time from 12:30-1:00pm so we have time to settle all arriving children with their groups, take attendance, give them snack and take them to the bathroom.
  • There is no need to drop your child to the center before 12:30pm unless we specifically give you another drop-off time.
  • All Nursery & Kindergarten programs are dismissed at 3:00pm unless otherwise stated.
  • Classes end at 2:45pm. We provide time for our counselors to gather all their children’s belongings, pack up their projects and bring them to their dismissal area.
  • If you do get to the center before 3:00pm, we ask that you wait by your child’s dismissal spot so kids are not being grabbed before counselors can get their kids to the dismissal area and sign them out properly.

Carpooling


If you are picking up children who are dismissed from different exits, please call the center at least 24 hours prior to program start, give us the names of the carpool, and we will assign them all to the Ave S side exit for pickup all together.

Making Changes to Dismissal or Program


If you need to make a change in your child’s dismissal location, time, method or in your child’s program or group, we require notification 24 hours prior to the program start. This is for the safety of all of our children. You can call the front desk at 718-627-4300 and they can communicate the change or try and reach Harry or Lillian directly. If you have an emergency change, you can always reach the front desk during the day of the program.

If your child is on bus either from Magen David or Flatbush Yeshiva or our door to door home busing and won’t be attending a specific day


You must inform the front desk if your child will not be taking bus on a specific day so that we don’t go looking for your child and hold up the bus from leaving.

When picking up your child


Please wait at the posted doors. We will either bring your child out to your car or take their name at the door and bring them outside for you. Please make your children aware of where you will pick them up because many children worry that their parents will not know where to get them. Please do not tell your child you will be getting them from another location because we need them to wait with their group and counselor at their posted dismissal spot.

To Register for Busing


In order for your child to take busing from school to the center or from the center to your home, you must register at least 2 days before program start so we can properly inform the right parties of their attendance.
