Extended Care

The Extended Care program is structured to be consistent with the educational goals and philosophy of the school and follows the same health and safety protocols used in the classrooms. The program provides a nurturing atmosphere for students in the transition time between school and home. Opportunity and direction are given for a variety of individual/group, self-directed/structured, quiet/active, spontaneous/planned, and indoor/outdoor activities. Students are given guidance and support as needed for completing homework, exploring creatively, and playing cooperatively. Midway through the afternoon a snack is provided. 

Schedule and Enrollment Options

 

Extended Care is offered on the Guilford Campus for Lower School students (preschool-grade 6) for an additional fee. Extended Care hours of operation are 7:30-8 a.m. and in the afternoon from school dismissal until 6 p.m

Students need to be enrolled in Extended Care in advance, and a signed Extended Care Agreement is required. Please return the signed agreement to Paul Nguyen, Director of Extended Care, at pnguyen@ngfs.org

Unscheduled Attendance

Advanced sign-up is required for Extended Care in order for us to provide adequate staffing. We understand that emergencies happen and will always care for your children. Any student attending Extended Care without advanced enrollment for the day will be included in our program at a rate of $10.00/hour, to be charged at the end of the week through CampSite.

Late Pick-Up

Extended Care operates until 6 p.m. A late fee of $1.00/minute may be charged to the card on file in CampSite.

CampSite and Billing 

 

Enrollment in Extended Care is completed through CampSite. NGFS has used CampSite for summer camp enrollment for four years, so if your child(ren) attended any NGFS summer camp programming from 2018-22, you already have a CampSite account. Access the CampSite login page here. We recommend bookmarking the site for quick access. You can also access the site from the home screen of the NGFS app.

  • If you already have a CampSite account and forgot your password, click "What's my password?" on the login site and follow the prompts to reset your password.
  • If you are new to CampSite, you can create your account through the CampSite login page here.

To sign up for occasional use:

Sign-up is required by Friday at 5 p.m. the week before care is needed, and payment is due at the time of enrollment. Once your enrollment choices have been submitted, you will not be able to alter the selections yourself. If a change in enrollment is necessary or you have any questions about the enrollment process, please contact Paul Nguyen, Director of Extended Care, at pnguyen@ngfs.org.

Students will only be released to the care of individuals on the Authorized Pickups list in CampSite.

After you have completed your first enrollment (or if you were already enrolled for a 2022 summer offering), you will have access to the “Authorized Pickups” tab to verify or change this information as needed.
