    Paradise Aftercare Information

    Preschool - 8th grade - Click here to Register


    Preschoolers are offered a variety of activities each day with loving, qualified staff in a safe environment. Activities are offered both inside the preschool and outside on our lovely playground.  

    Elementary (K – 5th grade)

    Our home base room is located in room P-4.  This is the portable that is nearest the playground, by the Kindergarten rooms.  We also use the Science Room and Library daily.  Please watch for our grade level signs posted on the doors that we are located in.  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 do have a strong emphasis on homework time for Grades 2 - 6 from 4:15 pm until 5 pm.  Parents may request additional homework time, as needed.  

    Snack Shack and Free Snack

    Students in grades K - 8 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. Free snack is also available every day with choices that usually include pretzels, saltines or animal crackers. 

    Middle School Aftercare Program (6th – 8th grade)

    We are happy to host a safe and convenient Aftercare program for our middle school students.  We will start our program at the front of the school on the west side of the gym, in the patio area.  Here students will be allowed to hang out and relax with their friends.  Fun age-appropriate games and activities will be available. We will post a sign in front of the side front gym door so parents know our location.  Students will also be given opportunities to work on their homework during aftercare.

    Pick up Information

    Only authorized persons may pick up students from Aftercare.  New families especially, should plan on showing ID when picking up their child from our program. If you need to add additional persons to your authorized list, please contact Heather Bay at heather.bay@ncsschools.com or by cell phone at (727) 647-0349.

    After School Activities

    Students in after school activities must either be picked up for their activity from their classroom or from Aftercare, with the exception of 6 – 8th graders, which are allowed to walk to their on-campus activities unaccompanied.  Once the activity is complete, students must wait with the teacher/coach leading the activity during the 15 minute grace period for pick up. After that, the student will be signed into Aftercare and all fees will apply.
