What is the K.A.S.E. Program?

K.A.S.E Program stands for Kinnelon After School Enrichment Program. The program is designed to let Kinnelon Public School children in grades K-5 experience a wide variety of courses that are both fun and educational. Often these opportunities are not readily available anywhere else.

How is the program funded?

The KASE Program is strictly a tuition based program.  The program does not receive any funding from the Kinnelon Board of Education Budget. The tuition helps cover the cost of instructor salaries, support staff and any supplies needed for the courses.

How often does the program run?

The KASE Program holds 2 semesters per school year.  A Fall Semester which begins in October and a Spring Semester which begins in March.

Each semester is approximately 8 weeks in duration and each weekly course is approximately 1 hour long.

Who are the Instructors?

In order to provide a wide variety of experiences and knowledge to our students, we hire instructors from all different walks of life.  Some instructors are professional educators, some run their own companies, dedicated to the courses they teach, and still other are members of local communities who have a passion that they want to share.

If you are interested in being a course instructor, please visit our Job Openings page.    On this page you will find some of the courses we are hoping someone would be interested in teaching.  We also welcome new ideas.  The goal is to find people who have a passion for a subject and is willing to pass that passion and knowledge on to our students.

Where does my child attend weekly courses?

Your child will attend classes in their own school.  A central meeting place will be arranged and the school office will call After School Enrichment students to that place.  In Kiel School it is usually the gym and at Stonybrook School it is usually the Cafeteria.

Kindergarten students who attend Stonybrook School are welcome to attend courses at Kiel School.  Parents will need to drive their children to Kiel School, being sure to arrive no later than 3:30.  All Kiel courses meet up in the Gym where they assemble with their teachers, attendance is taken and then the teachers take their charges to their classrooms.

What time of the day are courses held?

Courses begin at dismissal time for your child’s school.  Children are met by the course instructor at a central location and are escorted to a classroom by the instructor.  Classes are approximately 1 hour in length.

Specifically, Kiel School courses run from 3:40 – 4:40 and Stonybrook School courses run from 3:30 – 4:30.

How does my child get home after their course?

Parents are responsible for picking up their children at the end of the allotted time for the course.  To be fair to our instructors we ask that parents arrive at least 5 minutes before the course is scheduled to end so that students are picked up in a timely fashion.

How can I help support the KASE Program?

The support of the community is vitally important.

The first way you can help us continue to provide this wonderful experience is to sign your children up for one or more classes. Your participation enables us to retain our instructors and entice new instructors to our program.

Another way you can help is to check our Job Openings page and see if there is a course you might like to teach.  If you have and idea for a course you would like to teach, let us know!  We are always looking for new courses to add to our program.

If you don’t feel you would be able to be an instructor, but have an idea for a course you think the students might like, we would love to hear from you.  Sometimes people want to teach a course but just don’t know what they would like to do.  Ideas are always welcome.

Lastly, please tell your friends about the program and encourage them to either sign their children up or perhaps teach a class.

Our program is growing and there is always plenty of room for more eager minds.

Registration Info

How do I register my child?

 All enrollments occur online on this website. It is best to register with a credit card or PayPal since payment is immediate and you are then guaranteed your spot.   As soon as you register, pay,  and get your email confirmation, you are guaranteed a spot in the course(s) you selected (If they run).  If a course doesn’t run for low enrollment, we’ll put you into your alternate course or we’ll refund your payment.  It’s fast, secure and easy!

 If you’d rather pay by check, it’s best to walk it into the board office (Sending through your childs back-pack takes much longer and you may not get your spot).  Just order online, select “Pay by check”, print your confirmation and/or write your order number on your check.

  1. When do we know if you have met minimum class I found 6 to run? It’s important so we c I understand pick an option …Thank you great selection. Regards Marbella for Luke Heimberg

    • It’s important to go ahead and sign up for a class if you are at all interested in it. That way we know it can run! Sometimes a course is cancelled because we needed just one more student to sign up. You have the option during checkout to choose an alternate course and, of course, if a Course is cancelled, we’ll be in contact with you and let you know, and also give you the opportunity to choose a different course that IS running. I believe tonight (October 1st) is when decisions are being made about what courses will or won’t run. Thank you for your great question and I hope we see you after school!

    • Great question! 🙂 There are two sessions every school year. The Fall Session enrollment usually starts right after school begins in Sept and the Spring Session enrollment usually starts in February.
