Global Kids Extended-Day Program
Welcome to Global Kids, the Extended-Day Program of The International School! It offers a variety of fun enrichment classes, homework center, healthy snacks, and outdoor free play, available on a flexible schedule that meets the needs of busy parents. All Global Kids activities are facilitated by caring, dedicated staff with expertise in the subject area of the classes they teach such as music, dance, garden, art, and math. Global Kids is available after school on Mondays through Fridays until 6pm, and offers partial or full days on most no-school days.
3rd-party Classes are also available. You can sign up for 3rd-party class and then have your child brought to Global Kids for the remainder of the time that you need, without being double-charged. Customize your child’s Global Kids experience based upon their interests – and your schedule! The class offerings for each trimester will be available to view during Enrollment Week.
IMPORTANT: You MUST click on the link in the SchoolsBuddy email and activate your parent account in order to be able to enroll your child(ren) in Global Kids.
Important Information for ALL TIS Families
- Late pick up from School- In the event that your child is not picked up after school is dismissed (after 3:45pm on a regular day), your child will be signed-in to the Global Kids program and you will be billed at an hourly drop-in rate, with a one-hour minimum charge. Please note that the first time your child utilizes the Global Kids program each school year, your family will be charged a registration fee for each child.
- Enrollment will open for one week prior to each trimester, during which families can select their top three class preferences for each day of the week per student, including 3rd Party Class options. After Enrollment Week closes, students will be placed in their classes based on preference and demand, and families will be e-mailed their class assignments for the trimester, along with an invoice for the Global Kids classes. 3rd Party Classes will manage their billing independently.
- Sign-up for Global Kids on no-school days, early release days, and school conference days will also be open during Enrollment Week. These special program days are contingent upon meeting a minimum enrollment during each trimester.
