Just Kids Program operates a morning program at three locations for the district: Oaklyn Elementary School, Sharp Elementary School and Tatem Elementary School.  Children from Garfield, Newbie and Zane North Schools are served at Sharp Elementary for the AM. The students are picked up at Sharp School by the district and transported to their home school before the school day begins. Drop off for the morning program begins at 6:45 am. There is a $40 monthly fee for the transportation added to the tuition that goes to the school district to cover the cost of busing.  The afternoon program at each of the schools starts at the end of the school day until 6 pm

MONTHLY TUITION RATES:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also offer Flex Tickets!

These are prepaid tickets that can be used at any time.  One ticket is good for the entire school day, including half days.  Please note that the tickets are sold in books of 5 for $125. 

 

The tickets are good for the entire school year, but not refundable if unused. This is a great option if you only need to use Just Kids for half days or periodically

 

Other fees:

A non-refundable registration fee of $40.00 single, $70.00 family is due at the time of enrollment. This is good for the entire school year.  

Transportation fees (Collingswood AM) will not be pro-rated or refunded.

 

Discounts:

10% off  for Siblings using pm or am/pm care.

5% off for paying 5 months in advance.

 

Preschool Students:

Welcome!  For parents new to the school district, things can be confusing. Collingswood has preschool programs at multiple locations. In most instances, the preschoolers will attend Just Kids programs at the schools they attend. 

The Just Kids license allows Pre-K students ages 3 & 4 to be served for a maximum of 3.5 hours per day in our school age childcare program. 

You can enroll for morning and/or afternoon care, but would not be able to attend more than the 3.5 hours per day. In the past we mostly have preschoolers in the after-care (PM) programs at the various Collingswood schools.

Useful Information for Preschool Parents:

  • While some of our programs will have older children, we do ensure age-appropriate activities and dedicated staff for the preschoolers.

  • The Collingswood Early Childhood Center (CECC) is located at The United Methodist Church on Dayton Avenue. In our registration system we call this the Penguin Preschool

  • Depending on after-care (PM) enrollment, we may have the children be walked from Penguin Preschool to Zane North School. Two members of the Just Kids team would pick up the children at dismissal time.

  • Collingswood has three preschool classrooms at Oaklyn School. These three classes have access to the Just Kids program offered at Oaklyn. (In our online registration system, the Oaklyn preschool classes are listed under the Oaklyn School District and called Preschool Center.)

  • The 4 preschool classes at Sharp School have access to the Just Kids program at Sharp.

  • Zane North School has one preschool classroom. In the past, Zane had an after-care (PM) program, not a before-care (AM) program. If a preschool family needed before-care, it was at another location. 

  • Due to the 3.5 hour maximum, most families opt for after-care (PM) only. If before-care is needed, arrangements can be made but the 3.5 hour limit is strict.

Please complete the Preschool Agreement form when you complete the online registration. If you need the form, there is a link below. Please return it to Just Kids. Thanks!

If you have any questions or concerns about preschool, please email us. We are here to help!  justkids@archwayprograms.org
