Before and After School Care

North Seattle French School offers before and after school care featuring a variety of activity options for different interests, ages, and abilities. Since we are moving to the Shoreline Center for the 2019-2020 school year, we are still in the process of developing our program. Following is the schedule, with more information about specific classes coming soon.

Care is offered at three times during the day:

  • Breakfast Club is offered Monday through Friday from 7:15-8:15 a.m. Children join one of our staff and eat their breakfast, read a book, or watch a movie until the start of school. Please send an email to, with 24-hour advanced notice, to let us know that your child will be coming. Cost is $7 for one child and $5 for siblings.
  • After School Care is offered Monday through Friday from 3:30-5:00 p.m. Children attending “recess” will participate in games, sports, and outside play. The cost for recess is $15.  We will also offer after-School Enrichment Classes including various activities such as art, cooking, Kung Fu and more. Class offerings may change each trimester. Enrichment Classes are $20-25 per day per student.
  • Extended Day is offered Monday through Friday from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Arts and crafts, board games, books and play time are provided for that extra hour. Extended Day costs $8 for one child and $6 for siblings.


Enrollment is determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Each activity has a minimum and maximum enrollment number. Some courses are extremely popular and often exceed maximum numbers. If this occurs, your child will be placed on a waiting list and have priority placement for an upcoming trimester. If a class does not reach minimum registration, it may be canceled and you will be informed from the office.


Drop-Ins are always welcome in NSFS After-school. Requests for Drop-Ins should go to the Office. Call 206.365.1034, let us know in person, or send an email to Drop-In students can only participate in Recess. Payment is due at the time of registration for drop-ins.

There is a fee of $20 for Late Pick-Up, after 6:00 p.m. It is essential for all students to be picked up from Extended Day by 6:00 p.m.
