Children registered with our aftercare program gather at designated locations within each school upon dismissal.

Once at PrimeTime, snacks are given out and all children report to their groups according to their grade level. Arts and crafts, board and table games, cooking lessons, and other organized activities are set up for the children on a daily basis. A quiet room is also conveniently available for children to do their homework. Private, one-on-one tutoring can be provided at an additional cost.

Vacation Days


PrimeTime follows the calendar of the Cranford public school district and continues to provide care on a majority of the days when the schools are closed. Children and staff will occasionally go on field trips on these “vacation days”. Our program also provides coverage to children on half days. These days are not accounted for in the required 180 district days of school, and are therefore, an additional fee.


Friendly Reminder


PrimeTime does not operate on days when schools are closed due to inclement weather or other unforeseen emergencies.
