What is Fun 'N Nosh?
The preschool day begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 12 p.m. All preschoolers can extend their day and eat lunch (which you provide – dairy or parve only, please) with their friends. If you did not sign up your child for lunch on your Enrollment Agreement, you may register for the month in advance on the monthly Fun ‘N Nosh form or your child may stay on a “drop-in” basis.
Time: Lunch is from 12:00 to 12:55 p.m.
Cost: $7.00 per day (discount offered for advance annual registration).
Offered: The lunch program begins in September, on the first day of school. Lunch generally is available all five days of the week, except on select days, such as the eve of a holiday.
Enrollment: Space is unlimited; all children may stay for lunch. We encourage parents to register children for lunch in advance, as part of the Enrollment Agreement. To register mid-year, please contact Leela Borenstein. If your child will stay for lunch occasionally, or on a drop-in basis, you must submit payment that day and a parent or care provider needs to inform your child’s teacher at drop-off that morning.
Pizza: On Wednesdays, you may order a slice of kosher pizza, fruit, a drink, and dessert for your child for an additional $4.00 a day. More information is enclosed on a separate flyer. Please note: you must order pizza in advance; it is not available on a drop-in basis, but you can bring a sack lunch if staying that day.
After lunch, OTPS offers a variety of enrichment classes. In order to participate, children must be at least 3 years old and toilet independent (sorry, no exceptions).
Examples of classes offered in the past include, A Star Is Born, Tot Soccer, Chefs of the Future, and Basketball.
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Cost: $8.00 per day; $10 drop-in basis per day (based on availability)
Offered: Classes will begin in October and are offered two or more days per week, based upon enrollment. Classes change each month.
Enrollment: To hold a class, we must have a minimum enrollment of 8 children. Also, some classes have maximum enrollments, due to space limitations. If registration exceeds our maximum class size, we will conduct a lottery to determine the roster. Monthly registration forms are sent via e-mail and are also available on the OTPS website and the preschool bulletin board. Complete and send in your registration form and payment by the due date, which is usually the 21st of the prior month. With prior permission from the Director and provided a class is not full, your child also may attend class on a drop-in basis. You must submit payment that day.

Do you need some extra time to get things done? Does your child beg you to stay at school longer? Let your child stay at school until 3 p.m. for supervised play!
WHEN: Monday thru Friday from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. (Not available on early dismissal days.) Children registered for After Care will automatically participate in the Fun N Nosh class offered that day.
SIGN UP: There are options to sign up for After Care at the beginning of each month or for the entire year in advance. We will also do our best to accommodate children on a drop-in basis.
COST: $20 per child for children who are pre-registered. $24 per child on a drop-in basis. (This includes the Fun N Nosh class) If you sign your child up for the year and would like to pay in advance please contact Sharon Sherry for additional information on available discounts.
