Stay and Play!


We strive to provide PS 372 families with a fun, inclusive and affordable afterschool program that empowers and supports our children’s growing bodies and minds by providing thoughtful and engaged leadership that encourages play and friendship.

The Stay & Play! Afterschool Program is available to all students who attend The Children’s School at the 512 Carroll Street site (grades PreK – 5). Stay & Play! separates students into groups by grade (PreK & K, 1st-2nd, 3rd-5th).

Stay & Play! runs every school day (not including half days) from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm and will be available starting Sept. 11th until June 25th. You are able to enroll and attend Stay & Play! for as many days (1-5 days) a week as you would like. Drop-ins are welcome, please see the FAQ page for more information. Please note: Pickup for Afterschool does NOT start until 3:30 pm.

Registration for the 3rd Session of the 2023-2024 school year is now open!

(Session 3 Runs: May 1st – June 25th)

If you are new to our program, you will need to setup an account on Inclusions (Step1) prior to signing up for Afterschool or Drop-Ins. If you have already enrolled with Stay & Play! for a previous school year, head to your account page to select Afterschool or Drop-In options for the active or upcoming session (Step 2).

Our Afterschool program costs $30 per day per student for each session. Siblings will receive a 10% discount automatically at sign-up. There are three Afterschool sessions for each school year. Prices per session will vary based on the number of days per session. Drop-Ins are $32 per day. Our school doors are locked by 6:00 PM. You will be charged $25 for any pickup after 6:00 PM.


Enrichment programs will be offered in conjunction with the After School Program. Students will be able to choose different activities each day which includes: science, art, dance, music writing, games, sports, crafts and more! You will need to register separately and that information will be included at the time of registration. Please note: there will be capacity limits for enrichment classes. More detail on Enrichment classes here.


Students in 1st-5th Grade have an hour of homework time and can choose between 1 of 3 activities. Those activities include sports like soccer and football, camp style games like obstacle courses and our rec room where students can read, play board games or make art.

Our Pre-K and Kindergarten early childhood model is styled after a group play-date. This program encourages play and friendship with all. Children eat a snack from 3-3:30 pm, play outside, play in an early education classroom, enjoy a group book reading, and/or make a craft. As Early Childhood students do not have homework, there is no homework time – just Play! Play! Play!
