School's Out Program – Offering Quality Before- And After-School Care in Your Child’s Own School

"Both of my kids LOVED their School's Out experience and, as a working mom, it truly was such a blessing! I recall days when I'd get done work early and go to pick Morgan up from School's Out, only to have her stamp her feet and grumble because she wanted to stay!"

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for 2020-2021 has been postponed until we receive additional guidance from the State of New Jersey and our local school districts. If you have previously been registered with School’s Out, you will receive email notification when we open registration. If you have never been registered with School’s Out or have a new email address, please email to be added to the notification list.


Email update 6.4.2020

Dear School’s Out Families,

We hope this email finds you and your family safe and well. As the school year winds down, you would typically be receiving information about School’s Out registration for September. We have decided to delay our registration period until we have a more accurate understanding of any potential alternate schedules for the fall. Fall registration will ultimately be completed online, speeding the process along for our families and staff alike. 

We will email again when we are ready to open the registration portal for 2020-2021. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out by email or phone. Additionally, if you know of any families who are new to your district, please invite them to reach out to me with their contact information. I will add them to our contact list so they receive current information as well. 

Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing all of our students in the fall.
