NEDP’s main office (10 Oak St #1) is open by appointment only during the summer months. We are best reached through email.
NEDP is open from 7:15am until 15 minutes before the start of school for those registered for Before School and from dismissal to 6:00pm for our After School program. (Please note: Kindergarteners must be registered with the K.A.S.E. program in order to be in the school from 8:35-2:35.) Both the Before and After School programs will follow the Needham Public School calendar. Before School will be closed when school is delayed due to inclement weather.
A vacation camp will be offered for After School participants during February and April Vacation weeks (Tuesday – Friday). We are also open for many full days such as some religious Holidays and Teacher Professional days. These require a separate registration and an additional payment of $75 per day.
Early Release Day
When the Needham Public Schools have an Early Release Day (Teacher Professional Development) we are open from the close of school until 6:00pm. Those children contracted for that particular day of the week are expected and a fee of $25 will be charged for the additional hours. Please let us know if your child will not be attending; we usually have a waiting list for early release days. The fee will not be charged for children that do not attend.
NEDP will be closed for the following days:
October: Columbus Day
November: Veteran’s Day
Thanksgiving and the following Friday
December: School Vacation Week
January: Martin Luther King Day
February: Washington’s Birthday
April: Patriot’s Day
May: Memorial Day
Snow Day Procedure
If the Needham Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather, NEDP will also be closed. In the case of a delayed opening, Before School will be cancelled. However, if the schools are open in the morning but close early during the day, children whose parents have made prior arrangements with us will be brought to NEDP (see last page of registration). In this instance, it is the responsibility of the parents to contact your Site Coordinator as soon as possible to inform her/him of your earliest pick up time. If the weather worsens as the day continues, but school is not dismissed early, NEDP may ask parents to pick children up by 4:00pm.
