At New City School we recognize that an 8:30 am-3:30 pm day can be inconvenient for many families. Therefore, care is provided starting at 7:00 am and continues after school until 6:00pm.

  • Early Care (7:00 - 8:30AM): no charge
  • Extended Day Everyday Package (3:30-5:00pm): $290/month
  • Extended Day Everyday Package (3:30-6:00pm): $325/month

Extended Day is also available on an as-needed basis: the drop-in rate for the 2023-2024 school year is $3.75 for every 15 minutes spent in Extended Day after 3:45pm* ($15/hour).
*There is a 15-minute grace period between 3:30-3:45pm.

No School At School & Break Camps

Our break camps and No School At School (NSAS) days provide care for current students when school is closed for parent/teacher conferences, teacher in-service days, and during Winter and Spring Breaks. For the 2023-2024 school year, NSAS and break camps cost $70/day, with discounts available for multi-day packages.

New City School also offers a wide variety of summer camps for current students as well as other children in the community. To learn more, please visit our Summer Camp page.
