We would love to add new schools (and neighborhoods) to our School Pick-Up Service! To do this we require:
School within a half-mile walking distance from Fig Tree class location
Minimum of three students
Dismissal time and walking route fits with existing schedule (or number of students warrants new route)
How School Pick-Up Service Works
NYC Public, Independent, and Charter schools all dismiss at different times. Therefore, we offer two pick-up options: Early pick-up (dismissal before 3:00 PM), and Regular pick-up (dismissal 3:00 PM and later).
Pick-up is offered every day Fig Tree is in session; please consult the Fig Tree calendar for class dates. Note: We do not take into account individual school closings or events such as PD days or Parent Teacher Conferences.
We require a minimum of three students from each school (and/ or from each pick-up route).
EARLY PICK UP - School dismissal longer than one hour before Fig Tree
For dismissal times longer than one hour before class time. (i.e. 2:40 pick-up for a 4:00 PM class or 3:15 PM pick-up for a 5:00 PM class)
A friendly, responsible Fig Tree staff member will pick up students from their school dismissal location (classroom or other meeting spot) and will safely chaperone them to our Fig Tree class location.
Early school pick-up students will have about one hour of supervised care at our Fig Tree class location before class begins. We will provide a healthy snack, water, and homework help and/ or quiet games and activities.
REGULAR PICK UP - School dismissal within one hour of Fig Tree class
For dismissal times within 1 hour of class start time. (i.e. 2:40 pick-up for 3:00 PM class or 3:10 PM pick up for 4:00 PM class)
A friendly, responsible Fig Tree staff member will pick up students from their school dismissal location (classroom or other meeting spot) and will safely chaperone them to our Fig Tree class location in time for class. Group will likely pick up students from at least one other school on the way to Fig Tree.
New in 2018 (and for the Fig Tree Flagship only), we are offering an Extended Care option on Thursdays.
For students who attend our 4:00 PM class on Thursdays at the Fig Tree Flagship, Extended Care is offered until 6:00 PM (sharp). Students will spend the additional hour supervised by friendly, responsible Fig Tree staff. Kids can play or read quietly and/ or receive homework help in our cozy Flagship space.
For students who attend our 5:00 PM class on Thursdays at the Fig Tree Flagship, Extended Care is offered from 4:00 - 5:00 PM, for those families also utilizing our Pick-Up Service. Students will spend the additional hour supervised by friendly, responsible Fig Tree staff. Kids can play or read quietly and/ or receive homework help in our cozy Flagship space.
"School Pick Up" and "Extended Care" are considered "Session Options" in our registration system, appearing on the same page as the class registration. Families who have already registered can log back in using this link, and can add the School Pick-Up Session Option.
Once families are registered, they will need to send Fig Tree their students’ pick-up information using THIS form.
