PS 133 also offers two independently-run after-school programs: University Settlement and Kids Orbit. The staff from both programs believe in delivering a quality program where children have fun in creative and positive ways, build skills, gain self-esteem, and develop healthy relationships.

University Settlement

University Settlement provides a relaxed, child-centered atmosphere that encourages children to be their best. The curriculum includes art, music, science, literacy development, cooperative play and personal and social responsibility. Each day of the week has its own theme in addition to the arts, sports, and homework help that are offered regularly. You must be registered in the program in order to attend.

Applications will be distributed on the first day of school both at morning drop off. Due to the large volume of applicants, students will be selected based on a lottery system. Be sure to submit all paperwork including a medical form in order to be entered into the lottery for the program. Please contact Nikki Perez at 917-337-3211 if you have any questions about University Settlement. After-school runs from 2:40–5:30pm Monday through Friday.

Kids Orbit

Kids Orbit offers a flexible program to meet the needs of children and parents. We supervise homework and offer a variety of enrichment activities ranging from yoga and sports to art, music, and drama. We sit quietly and read and draw. We play board games with our friends. We laugh and have a lot of fun.

This program can be full-time or part-time. For questions or to register, visit the Kids Orbit website or contact the office at (718) 768-4426 for more information.
