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 student 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?
    You can still register once enrollment opens. When prompted to enter your student's PowerSchool ID, please enter 56831.

    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. We offer curbside dropoff in the mornings and curbside pickup in the afternoons as one of our enhanced safety practices. Children will have a health check when leaving the vehicle in the mornings.
    Please have your ID tag provided by Eagle's Nest.
    Kindergartners must arrive by 8:15 am to guarantee that they will arrive on time to board the ELC shuttle. If you wish for them to eat breakfast at Eagle's Nest, please arrive no later than 7:55 am.

    Can my child ride the school bus on the days s/he is not attending Eagle's Nest?
    Students are ineligible to ride the 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.

    Does my child have to wear a mask?
    Health and safety protocols will follow the current school and transportation guidelines.

    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 in the mornings. After school, the students will be transported to the bus loop and will be met by Eagle’s Nest staff who will escort the students to the Primary School cafeteria. Please note that students are not eligible for NAPLS transportation 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 the PaySchools Central by electronic check or credit card. Once kindergarten registration is complete with the district, you can establish an account and link it to your student. Fees are due monthly.

    Is Eagle’s Nest available for 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 when s/he attends school. AM only kindergarten students may attend morning Eagle’s Nest, PM only kindergarten students can attend afternoon 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 eaglesnest@napls.us and the classroom teacher whenever your child is not coming to Eagle’s Nest. It is a good idea to have a conversation with your kindergartner as well, so he/she knows the daily plan.
