Movement School Home

Our commitment to nurturing and educating students doesn’t stop when the dismissal bell rings.

Starting Aug. 9, Movement School will offer after-school care for all students from 3:15 to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We’ll also offer before-school supervision, starting at 6:30 a.m.

Movement School is partnering with Charlotte’s TAPS Education and Sports Academy, which will manage before school and after school but host both programs in our school building on Freedom Drive.

TAPS will offer students homework help, snacks and a bundle of extracurricular activities that include sports and crafts. To enroll your student in before school, after school or both, click here. Registration begins July 1.

 

Before/After School FAQ:

*If a student requires care for more than two days out of the week, they will be required to register for after school and pay the normal weekly rate.

Will there be a sibling discount on cost?

The cost for before and after school care is priced at a very affordable rate for our families so there is no sibling discount for care. However, during school closing and holidays, there is a 10 percent discount on the oldest sibling, regardless if they attend the Movement school or not.

What are the times for after school? Is there a penalty if I am late picking up my child?

Afterschool is from the end of the school day until 6:30 p.m. The late pick-up penalty is $1 for every minute past 6:30.

What are the payment options?

Online, credit payment options, money order and cashier’s checks are all acceptable forms of payment. Personal checks will not be accepted. All online payments are recurring each week and the initial card used at registration will be used to process payment unless otherwise noted.

What are the activities offered in after school care?

TAPS offers a variety of academic and enrichment activities for our participants, including homework help, crafts, sports and tutoring.

How will you communicate information to families?

Emails, as well as monthly newsletters, are distributed to families and Movement School staff. You’ll get those emails and newsletters once after school starts.
