After School Care

Welcome to After3@PLP!   Hello!

Welcome to the After School page for Pine Lake Preparatory, After3@PLP. Pine Lake Preparatory established our Extended Day Program in 2011 to provide families an on-site, safe and enjoyable option for after school care.  After3@PLP was re-branded in 2016 to encompass all of the "after school activities" that we offer after the final bell. Extended day care, enrichment opportunities and clubs are all programs our Lower Schooler's can take advantage of. 
 

From day one, our mission has always been the same:  provide a safe, enriching after school experience that engages each student and contributes to his/her academic, social and physical growth. After3@PLP Extended Day is open to Lower School children Kindergarten to Fifth Grade, as well as their Middle School Siblings. 

In addition to our Extended Day Program, we offer different Enrichments throughout the year.   We offer enrichments on a rotating basis, every 7 weeks.  

We want structure and variety in the After School Program; therefore we will follow a daily routine that includes snack, homework and social/educational activities for your children.  The children will be in age appropriate classrooms (Kindergarten, 1, 2/3, 3/4, 5+). Our yearly schedule is consistent with the school calendar.

Please contact me with any questions you may have regarding registration for the 2021-2022 school year!

After3@PLP Extended Day Care Program Information

Program Hours:

The After3@PLP Program will begin at "All Call" and will end at 6:00pm.  We follow the school calendar, so if the school is closed for teacher work days or breaks, After3@PLP is also closed.  Parents/Guardians who arrive after 6:00pm will be assessed a late fee.  In the event PLP is closed for inclement weather or other emergency, After3@PLP will not operate.  This includes early dismissal due to weather. 

Program Location:

All classes regardless of grade level will be in our Lower School

Program Schedule:

All classes will receive snack, homework time, recess time and age appropriate activities.  We work with our daytime teachers to develop activities that engage and enforce what they are learning in their day classes.  In Kindergarten and first grade, we spend small group time working on "homework" which may be sight words, reading books and math games.  In our upper grade levels, we give the children more time to focus on the homework that their teacher gives them, while giving support when they need assistance. 

Pick Up Information: 

Please use the PikMyKid application to schedule pick ups for your child.  When you arrive on campus, please "announce" that you are here and our Front Desk Staff will have your child in the lobby waiting for you. You must come into the building to pick up your child.  If your student needs to change their assignment or designation, please contact the After3 Director.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you pro-rate your tuition for the After School Program? Yes; you only pay for the days that PLP After3@PLP is OPEN.  We take the total cost and divide it by 10 equal payments. Even though we are closed for various breaks in the school year (Fall, Winter and Spring Breaks) you are not paying for those days your child does not attend.  

Do you offer homework assistance in Extended Day? Absolutely! If your child is struggling to complete their homework, please reach out to Mrs. Stratford. All teachers are available to assist your child, please note this is not private tutoring, but assistance is available. Our teachers do not have access to your child's assignments or to their Canvas page. 

How do I pay for After3@PLP? All payments are to be processed through My Payments Plus. You will receive an email that you have a new fee available to pay. If you do not receive this email, please reach out to Mrs. Stratford.
