TO INQUIRE ABOUT CURRENT AVAILABILITY
As a working parent of three boys, it was very important for me to find reliable after-school care that was a good fit for their active personalities. We have been attending Active Kids at the Adirondack Club since my oldest was in kindergarten (he is now about to start 7th grade) and it has been a great experience. Our kids enjoy the range of activities offered and thrived in the friendly, engaging environment the Active Kids program offers. The staff is fantastic, always very helpful and interactive with both the kids and parents. It is great to be greeted by name and with a smile when you arrive after a long day. Our boys really enjoy making friends from other schools and often will tell me they were not ready to leave because they were having too much fun! The program's flexibility, hours, and options for both no school days and school vacation weeks were extremely helpful and appreciated as a working mom.

WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE FOR MY ACTIVE KID?
Your Active Kid will get off of our leased buses and be greeted by our awesome staff of childcare professionals. The kids, with staff, will all have the option to head to the pool for some energy burning and fun! Every Active Kid will then be offered an array of snacks such as fruits and veggies and other quick bites like pretzels, cookies and tortilla chips.
Snack time is always accompanied by a choice of juice or water.
Throughout the week our active schedule rotates through high-energy programming such as indoor and outdoor fitness and outdoor play time and active games! Our Active Kids are always encouraged to socialize through our scheduled activities as well as during their free choice time! Homework can also be worked on daily.
All daily activities in the after-school program are included in the monthly cost.
HOW IS THE STAFF SELECTED?
Active Kids staff are carefully chosen to accommodate the ever-changing needs of our growing program. Lead teachers are required to have a background/degree in education with a focus on the early stages of education. Many of our assistant staff members have been working in our summer camps, childcare, and afterschool program for years.
WHAT DAYS CAN I SIGN UP FOR?
Our program is currently accepting 2 days, 3 days, 4 days and 5 days per week applications from one-month to a full school year’s commitment. Space is limited, please inquire about availability.
There is a $50 registration fee for the After School program.
HOW DOES BILLING WORK AND WHAT HAPPENS ON HALF DAYS AND
NO SCHOOL DAYS?
Early Release Days: 12:00 PM -6:00 PM Children who normally attend that day will be charged a $15 fee. You MUST pack your Active Kid a lunch because we do not supply lunch in Active Kids.
Full Days Off: The cost is $87 per child for members and $90 per child for non-members.
Occasionally we go offsite on a field trip on days off from school.
Information about field trip/ fees will be presented in a permission slip flyer.
If it is your child’s regularly scheduled day, you are responsible for payment whether they attend or not. There is an additional fee for No School Days and Half Days only if they are utilized. These additional fees will be charged to your Club Account and processed with the EFT the following month. You are still responsible for payment on your child’s regularly scheduled days when they do not attend due to family vacations, appointments, illness, sports, etc.
If it is your child’s regularly scheduled day and full-day care is not needed, they are welcome to attend the program from 3-6 pm as payment has already been made for after school care.
We will be offering daily camps during December, February, and April Vacations. There is no fee for vacation weeks unless they are utilized. Information will be emailed and advance sign-up will be required.
Please email James at firstname.lastname@example.org or Meredith at email@example.com in advance to register for No School Days.
*If you are in need of care on a No School Day, and it is not your child’s regularly scheduled day to attend, please check with James to ensure we have availability.
