Childcare

Late Birds offers flexible and reliable childcare on all school days from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Depending on your needs, you may flexibly decide on which days per week you wish us to look after your children. If you suddenly need childcare at the last minute, we are also happy to take your children on short notice. The costs of our care are calculated depending on how many days or hours you arrange with us.

We are available to look after your children on days when there are Parent Conferences, early dismissal days, and some American holidays that the school celebrates, as well as certain weeks during the vacation times. For these days we offer special field trips and activities in and outside of JFKS. During the summer vacation we plan a summer camp during the last week of vacation to meet all the friends before school starts again.
