We are excited to be getting ready for an awesome extended day program at BVHM next year!
As was shared in the bulletin, Jamestown will be offering:
- Before school program (Phoenix Risers) for k-5th grades,
- Afterschool program for k-8 , and
- Drop in child care for k-5.
Afterschool program participants will have the option of choosing 3 days a week or 5 days a week. Families can chose before school only, after school only or both before and after school.
Families choosing the drop in option can register in advance and choose the block of hours they want to register for on a monthly basis. Jamestown will guarantee a spot in the afterschool program for all BVCC and Jamestown BVHM families currently enrolled who register before May 26th. After that date, applications will be time stamped, and accepted on a first come, first served basis as space allows.
Enrollment for all families will begin on Tuesday, May 17th at the BVHM extended day enrollment fairs at 8:30 am to 10:00 am and 5:00 to 6:30 pm in the breezeway next to the auditorium.
For families participating in before school, after school and drop in childcare who do NOT need a scholarship:
Families who want to sign up for programming and do not need scholarships can access the registration packet on our website. Print, complete, sign, and drop it off at school on the day of registration. You can also email the completed, signed and scanned application to firstname.lastname@example.org. . To finalize the registration, parents must pay a $75 deposit which will be credited entirely to the first month of program. The payment can be made online on the Jamestown website. At the beginning of the school year, Jamestown will bill each family and set up a monthly automatic billing and payment plan through its Paysimple system.
For families participating in before school, afterschool and those who need a partial or a full scholarship (drop in childcare is not covered by the scholarships): Families seeking a scholarship through ExCEL or DCYF can access the application now on the website. Fill it out ahead of time and bring it to the enrollment fair; or get it at the fair.. To receive a scholarship, families must present their free or reduced lunch eligibility letter from the school district. Families currently receiving a subsidy for childcare from the Children’s Council can note that on their application and chose Jamestown Community Center as their provider. Families who are not receiving free or reduced lunch, do not receive a Children’s Council subsidy but who are low income can bring proof of income (last year tax returns or an employer letter) to the enrollment fair. Families can also register at the Jamestown office starting May 19th from 10 am – 12:00 pm or 4:00-6:00 pm by bringing the documentation with them.
