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 1st Session of the 2023-2024 school year is NOW OPEN!

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).

If you run into any issues or have questions you may reach us here.


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!
