The John F. Kennedy School is not an all-day school – students are dismissed at different times according to their grade level. In order to accommodate working parents or to coordinate with siblings’ dismissal times, JFKS offers two After School Care programs: Hort and Late Birds.
Hort is a program for children of working parents subsidized by the city of Berlin covering long working hours during the day until 18.00 h as well as during vacation time and American holidays.
Late Birds is a program children of all families can participate in. It offers care until 16.00 h on school days, and occasional camps during vacation times and on American holidays if enough families are interested. Families pay only for the actual hours their child attends Late Birds.
