HARRIET TUBMAN PTO BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Harriet Tubman PTO Aftercare is a non-profit corporation child care center that provides Before- and
After Care for students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Our philosophy is to provide a place where
children will receive quality care in a safe, well-maintained and pleasant environment.
Before- and After Care is housed in the Harriet Tubman school building for the 2012 -2013 school
year. Before Care is provided for those students whose parents need an early start in the morning,
and is a quiet time for children to get ready for their school day.
Before Care is held in the cafeteria/gym and children are escorted from Before Care to the
playground if the weather permits. If weather does not permit, children will remain in the
cafeteria/gym it is time for their Before Care classroom teachers to bring them to their
classrooms. After Care includes time for homework assignments (with assistance if necessary from a
staff member) and indoor or outdoor playtime.
After Care begins in the cafeteria/gym and students are escorted there by their classroom teacher or
Before- and After Care is staffed with teachers from the Harriet Tubman School and other long-time
approved caregivers who meet the necessary state of New Jersey standards. A child can only be
released to a parent or to a person authorized, in writing, by a parent. Authorized individuals must
show identification to pick-up a child.
We are proud to offer this program for children whose parents are working full time. Our goal is to
provide after school care for children in grades K-6 in a safe, warm, friendly
environment on school grounds, staffed by familiar school members at reasonable prices.
