The Cardinals’ Nest will provide services to children who have attended school on that day, based on the current A/B schedule. As schedules change and develop, we will adapt accordingly. At this time, we must limit daily attendance to 8-10 students in order to provide social distance.

The Art program will be operated separately in a different room. Families will be contacted separately regarding Art.

The Cardinal’s Nest is pleased to offer academic enrichment activities in a safe, supervised environment for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade, Monday & Tuesday, Thursday & Friday, from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM on a sliding fee schedule based on the criteria for the free or reduced lunch program.

Fees:  Regular - $10 per day

 Reduced lunch- $7 per day

 Free lunch - $5 per day

The Cardinals’ Nest works closely with your child’s teacher to provide activities designed to enhance the learning that occurs during the school day.  We provide a snack, time for homework and tutoring, and a planned mix of math, reading, writing, science, art, drama, music, and other enrichment activities.

Children do not need to stay until 5:00 PM or participate everyday, the choice is up to the family. Billing is based on daily attendance, with invoices sent when the month is completed, payable within 10 days.
