New Horizons, which has been in operation for over 25 years, is an ideal program for P.S. 81 students and students in the Riverdale community at large. Children can be enrolled Monday-Friday from 3-5:45 p.m. when school is in session. Snacks are provided before classes begin.
Some of our most popular classes include soccer, mime, hip hop, computers, yoga, chess, and crafty fun classes, just to name a few. New classes are added each cycle. Recent additions include guitar and self defense as well as Spanish. Staff members also offer homework assistance sessions or sessions area available for supervised activities, such as read alouds with our devoted staff and former students serving their community, drawing, quiet reading, working on puzzles, playing board games, or viewing carefully selected videos. Our staff is comprised of fully certified P.S. 81 teachers and other professionals who are carefully screened before being employed. Children thrive and build lasting friendships with fellow students and the teachers.
Registration forms are circulated each semester via children's backpacks and via email upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration forms can be sent into the school to the attention of New Horizons.
