The Extended Care program will resume for the 2021-22 school year for preschool-8th grade students.
The Extended Care program is planned and 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 goal of the program is to create a nurturing atmosphere for students in the transition time between school and home. Opportunity and direction are provided 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
Continuing with our changes from last year, we are not using a drop-in style program. Rather, students are 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 email@example.com.
Extended Care is offered for Lower School (Preschool-6th grades) from 7:30-8 a.m. and in the afternoon until 6 p.m. for Lower School and Middle School (Preschool-8th grades). Enrollment options include full-time use and occasional use.
Enrollment in Extended Care is completed through CampSite (detailed information below).
- If you select a full-time plan, the enrollment in CampSite will be completed for you, and the credit card on file will be changed monthly.
- If you select an occasional-use plan, you will sign up in advance through CampSite (see directions below).
Note: If your child is not picked up at school dismissal, and you have not scheduled your child to stay beforehand, we will always care for your child and keep them until you can pick them up.
Extended Care Rates
Extended Care is offered for an additional fee from 7:30-8 a.m. (Preschool-6th grades only) and in the afternoon until 6 p.m. (Preschool-8th grades).

Any students attending Extended Care without advanced enrollment for the day will be included in our program at a rate of $9.00/hour, to be charged at the end of the week through CampSite.
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
Sign-up for Extended Care is done 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 2018-21, you already have a CampSite account. Access the CampSite login page here. We recommend bookmarking the site for quick access.
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 do not have a CampSite account, upon receipt of the signed Extended Care Agreement, we will create one for you by importing information from ParentsWeb, and you will receive an email with login directions.
To sign up for occasional use:
In CampSite, enrollment options for upcoming four weeks of school will be available. You can sign up for any combination of days per week. Sign-up is required by Friday at 5 p.m. the week before (this deadline is extended for the first week of school; see below for more information ), 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, please contact Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the first week of school, Wednesday, August 25 - Friday, August 27, Extended Care enrollment will be open beyond Friday at 5 p.m., through the weekend. You may sign up in CampSite, or, if you have any questions about the process, you may email Paul with the needed dates. You may also request a time to meet with him virtually to learn the enrollment process.
To sign up for Extended Care, login to your CampSite account, and click "Enrollment" and select the student. Follow the prompts to complete the enrollment process.
Note: To make changes to enrollment, please contact Paul at email@example.com before 5 p.m.on Friday before the affected week begins. If requests are made by this time, enrollment and payment can be moved to other dates.
If you already have a credit card on file in your CampSite account (from previous summer camp enrollment), it will be available as an option at checkout. If you do not have a credit card on file or need to add a new one, you will be able to select that option during checkout, or you can make that change directly through the “Financial” link, and then “+Add Payment Method”.
To change your password, click “My Account” then “Password”.
After you have completed your first enrollment (or if you were already enrolled for a 2021 summer offering), you will have access to the “Authorized Pickups” tab to verify or change this information as needed. Students will only be escorted out of the buildings to the cars of individuals on the Authorized Pickups list.
