Welcome to Eagle's Nest!
We are delighted that you have chosen Eagle’s Nest as a part of your child’s experience in New Albany. It is our hope to help your child start and end the day with a smile!
My child’s kindergarten registration isn’t complete, and there may not be any spaces left in Eagle’s Nest. What can we do?
Parents can create a GoSignMeUp registration account (see registration tab on this page when available) before the student’s district registration is finalized. Enter KDG for the PowerSchool number, and update the students’ PowerSchool ID in GoSignMeUp as soon as it is assigned. Registration is paid for in GoSignMeUp, tuition will be paid starting in August in your PayForIt account.
Where is Eagle’s Nest Before and After Care located? Where do I drop my child off and pick him/her up?
Eagle’s Nest is housed in New Albany Primary School, 87 N. High Street. You will drop off in the gym in the mornings and pick up near the cafeteria in the afternoons. Eagle’s Nest students must be escorted into the Primary School for drop off by a parent /authorized adult in the morning and picked up by a parent/authorized adult from after care.
Can my child ride the school bus on the days s/he is not attending Eagle's Nest?
Students are ineligible to ride NAPLS school bus for the portion of the day enrolled in Eagle's Nest. For example, students in morning care may not ride the morning school bus to school at any time. Students enrolled in afternoon care may not ride the afternoon bus home on any day. Students enrolled in morning and afternoon care are ineligible for school transportation. This includes any temporary changes in schedules.
How will my child get to and from the Early Learning Center?
NAPLS school buses will transport students from the Primary School to the Early Learning Center. After school the students will be transported to the bus loop and will be met by Eagle’s Nest staff to be escorted to the primary school cafeteria. Please note that students are not eligible for NAPLS transportation from home for the portion of the day that they are enrolled in Eagle’s Nest.
Where do I pay for Eagle’s Nest fees?
Monthly tuition is paid in PayForIt by electronic check or credit card. Once kindergarten registration is complete with the district, you can establish a PayForIt account and link it to your student.
Is Eagle’s Nest available the part of the day that my child is not in kindergarten?
Eagle’s Nest does not provide wraparound care. Your child can be enrolled in Eagle’s Nest for the portion of the day that s/he attends school. AM kindergarten students may attend AM Eagle’s Nest, PM only kindergarten students can attend PM Eagle’s Nest, and all-day kindergarten students may attend both AM and PM Eagle’s Nest.
How will my child know where to go?
Staff members at Eagle’s Nest and the Early Learning Center will be prepared for your child’s arrival and will be positioned to help each child get to the correct place.
I would like to take my child to school for the first few days. Is that okay?
Please email Eagle’s Nest at firstname.lastname@example.org whenever your child will not be coming to Eagle’s Nest. It is good idea to have a conversation with your kindergartener so he/she knows the plan as well.
