We are happy to host a safe and fun environment for children to enjoy after school each day. Aftercare starts at 3:00 p.m. on all full days of school. All students attending Aftercare must go to directly to Aftercare at 3 pm. Student awaiting pick-up will wait in their teacher's classroom for an individual dissmissal call from the front office. Any students that remain at 3:15 p.m. will then be escorted to Aftercare to sign in. There will then be a fifteen minute grace period for picking up your child that ends at 3:30 p.m.
Aftercare will run from 3:00 pm until 6 pm everyday and is now located in room 12-A. Our highly qualified and loving Aftercare Workers have a list of exactly who is in their care at all times! This safety procedure gives a check and balance system to ensure the safety and whereabouts of your child at all times. We have many great features to our program that will include the opportunity for students to work in our new room in small groups, participating in varied activities that may include crafts, games, homework and more. There is also the opportunity to join extracurricular activities such as sewing class, Jr. Mustangs and more!
Students will be given the opportunity to eat a snack each afternoon shortly after dismissal time. Students may bring their own snacks from home or purchase snacks at our “Snack Shack” where items are priced from $.25 to $2.00 each. Parents sending money in for snacks are encouraged to place those funds on their child’s “Snack Shack” account. Funds can be sent in to your child’s teacher clearly marked with your child’s name and designated to “Paradise Snack Shack.” Any type of purchase parameters that parents wish their children to follow for snack time can then be added to their individualized snack account card.
Parents MUST SIGN OUT their child from our care. We must have your signature on our attendance sheets everyday to ensure the safety of your child and accurate billing. Students must be picked up on-time, by 6 pm, in order to avoid a late fee of $1.00 per minute.
In order to streamline the billing and collection of after care charges, all after care charges will be put directly onto the tuition accounts. Aftercare will cost $.85 every 15 minutes increment. That totals $3.40 per hour.
Families who use Aftercare on a consistent basis should consider purchasing an unlimited Aftercare Package. This package includes:
If you are interested in purchasing an unlimited package or have any other questions or comments, please feel free to contact Mrs. Heather Bay, Paradise Aftercare Director, at 727-647-0349.
We are open on all regular days of school from 3:00 pm until 6 pm. All NCS students are automatically registered for our program and can attend on any day needed.

Any student picked up after 6 pm will be charged an additional $1 per minute late fee. Please see below for specific details on all in-service and holiday scheduling.
