Before and After School Care Options for New Brighton School



Many of you have been wondering about before and after school care options for New Brighton School.  We now have two options to share with you:

1.  1st Class Preschool which operates out of the New Brighton Resident’s Association Clubhouse, will be offering before and after school care for K (pm only due to space limitations) to 4 classes attending the school.  Hours, pricing and registration information can be found at

2.  New Brighton Child Care (the big building down the street at corner of New Brighton Heath and New Brighton Drive) will also be offering before and after school care for K-4 students.  They are a licensed and soon to be accredited program.  They can be reached at 587-471-7735 and/or emailed at for more information.

New – Bell Times, Registration and Kindergarten

Principal Jeff Hutton has released some information regarding the school’s bell times, registration for students not currently attending Acadia school and Kindergarten classes.

Bell times will be 8:10 – 3:10pm.  These times are still tentative but should only change by a few minutes so they should allow parents to start planning any before and after school care.  Currently the only before and after school care that we are aware of is 1st Class Preschool at the clubhouse which is setting up before and after school care.

The school is now accepting registration for students not currently attending Acadia school.  Details can be found in the letter.

Please see the letter below for more details on the bell times, contact info for the school, registration and information on programming. NOTE:  there is an error on the document for the Friday dismissal time of the Kindergarten students.  It should read 11:45am, NOT 1:45.



The Kindergarten program has received too many AM and not enough PM requests.  They are hoping that some parents will consider moving to PM.  If this does not happen, they will need to have a draw to decide who attends AM and PM.  They will also be hosting a parent/guardian only open house on June 2 at 6:45pm at Acadia school for the Kindergarten parents.

More information on the Kindergarten orientation and the draw can be found in the letter below:

Thank You!

We’d like to thank everyone who ate at Chili’s yesterday and mentioned our name! We’d also like to thank Chili’s for holding this fundraiser for us. It will be a little while before we know how much was raised but indications are that it was a pretty successful event!

NOTE: There was a bit of confusion yesterday with the Chili’s staff and how the fundraiser worked. If anyone who attended this event was told they’d be getting 15%of their bill total refunded to them by the NBEPA, we’d like to correct that. We are NOT refunding money to people who attended. The 15% of everyone’s bill is donated to us by Chili’s. This was told to some customers and we wanted to ensure it was corrected. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused.
