School Age Before and After Care, Closure, and Summer Camp

Before & After School

Our before and after school programs are targeted toward children who are registered in any of the above programs or for grade school children up to age 12. While the program is recreational, we offer an environment (and the encouragement) that enables children to complete their homework. Creative play, outdoor play, and snack time are offered.

The before-school program runs from 7:00am – 9:00am, with a 6:30 early bird drop off available. The after school program is available from 2:45 until 6:00 PM, with a 6:30 late pickup also available. Your children can be directly bused to and from English Rose from Washingtonville public schools and most private schools.

School / Snow Closure

To assist working parents, English Rose runs a “Closure Program” during most days that public school is closed. This includes minor holidays, spring break, Christmas break, inclement weather, and snow days, including delays.

You can register for our Closure Program on an annual basis, which guarantees a spot for your child. You can also register on an as needed basis and pay a per diem charge (see the office for details). On closure days, we offer a recreational program for the children. Please see our  this year’s Calendar for our scheduled closure days for the upcoming school year.

When we have an unscheduled closing, or delayed opening, we will leave a message on the school voicemail. If we need to close early due to an unforeseen emergency, we will personally phone each child’s home or emergency number to let the parents know. At no time, will we ever leave a child unsupervised.

Summer Camp

Our summer day camp is available for children up to age twelve, and we offer a summer full of fun, creativity  athletics, and performance. Kids learn and play, make new friends and stay in touch with old friends. Registration for Summer Camp 2021 is now open!
