To register, please complete a registration form per child, pay the non-refundable registration fee, and pay the first session in full. There is no deposit. A copy of your child’s birth certificate is required as part of the registration.

Pick Up:

In order for a student to attend Aftercare, he/she must be picked up directly from school by the ASP staff. Students must be signed out on the dismissal sheet at the front desk by a parent or another authorized person. Once a student has been signed out of the program, he/she is not allowed to reenter the program. All parents or authorized persons picking up a student must present a photo ID. No exceptions. Students will not be dismissed to your vehicle. All students must be picked up by 6:00 pm (3:00 pm for Storytelling). The Late Pick Up Policies are as follows:

Storytelling Hour:

After 3:30 pm ~ $20 + $20 per every half hour thereafter

After 6:30 pm ~ $20 plus $1/minute for every minute thereafter
After 9:00 pm ~ Your child will be taken to the SIB Police Department

Payment Procedure:

Afterschool program fees are based by session, not calendar month. Payments are due on the last Tuesday of each session for the next session. If payment is not made, your spot will be forfeited. If space is still available and you come to pay after the due date, a late fee of $5 per day (including Saturdays and Sundays) will apply, AND it will take approximately 24 hours to process your payment (i.e. your child will NOT be picked up if payment was received that same day). Absenteeism does not change fees. Payment can be made via cash, checks, money order, or credit card (VISA/Mastercard/American Express).

For check payments, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Make checks payable to “City of Sunny Isles Beach.”
  • Please write your child’s name on the bottom of the check.
  • If a check is returned for insufficient funds, we should receive payment within 2 days or your child may not be allowed to continue attending the program. Payment must be made in cash or by money order for the amount on the NSF check, plus a $30 bounced check fee.
  • If we receive more than one NSF check, you will be required to pay all future payments in cash or by money order.


If you wish to withdraw your child from the program, please submit a Request for Refund/Transfer Form. Notice must be given at least 7 days prior to withdrawal in order to receive a refund.
