Dear Parents and Guardians:
Information about the cost of CREW!
  • CREW is a highly supervised, educational, and fun experience for your child.
  • Character education and a variety of other activities to promote kindness toward others are a daily experience at CREW!
  • Your child gets homework help from State of NJ Highly Qualified Teacher. Ms. Sloan holds a Master's Degree in Education, as well as, Special Education. She has over 25 years of combined teaching and supervisory after-care program experience.
  • Supervised and organized teamwork building games are arranged both indoors and out. Teamwork and cooperation play a huge role in the CREW Program.

  • Your children are in safe secure setting where all employees are fingerprinted and background checked. Safety and security is a must!
  • Every student is provided with a complimentary snack from the cafeteria. Around 4pm we have a grain item such as cereal, graham crackers, animal cookies, cereal bars, 100% fruit juice, and a fruit item!
  • If you come to the program on a monthly basis there is no charge for the days that CREW is open on half-day closings of regular school.

  • All of the above items factor into the daily rate of the program, which we try to keep at it's lowest possible cost to you.
We look forward to providing your child with the safest, most secure, caring environment for economical family friendly cost!

Thank you, Ms. Sloan

CREW After Care will be available from 1:05 pm to 4:30 pm on all half-days except when there is a half day before Thanksgiving, winter and spring break.
  • If your child does not attend on a regular basis the fee is $12.00 from 1:05 to 3 pm.
  • If you want your child to attend from 1:05 to 4:30 on half days the fee is a total of $24.00 for the whole afternoon.

Please see FAQ below about the Kitchen CREW!

New students are always welcome!

Kitchen CREW students working on prepping for the Gingerbread Houses!
  • Sign up and join us to cook up some fun everyday!


Kitchen CREW students made their own chef hats!

Students who attend CREW will now be
learning about food safety, recipe math,

recipe writing, taste testing, go on restaurant

field trips, and use hands on skills to cook and

decorate special snacks.


1. Yes, some element of a cooking activity will happen everyday. It might not be the actual food eating part, but it could be the recipe writing, measuring, decorating, or tasting.

2. The ideal situation is that your child attends 4 to 5 days per week for the full experience.

3. The activities will happen all 5 days, so a recipe might be ready to eat on a Tuesday, a Friday, or any day of the week.
It doesn't matter what day your child attends, something fun will be a part of each day.

4. Homework will not be a big part of After Care now that we are cooking. Homework will be completed if there is extra time. Your child may have to complete homework at home, since our focus has become more club oriented. Students will always have access to computers and tables to complete homework if they choose that for part of their day.

5. Kitchen CREW will not be held on half-days. Regular After Care schedule will be in effect for the half-days that CREW is open.

Feel free to email me at, with any questions!


C.R.E.W. After Care starts at 3 pm and 

student pick up is anytime before 4:30pm

otherwise noted on the calendar!

Welcome to the CREW (Children Reaching Excellence Weekly) Page!
You will  NOT get a bill, it is expected that you will pay monthly as listed on this page.

Discounted Rates for Different Hours of Drop-In Attendance.

Second or third children do not get the discount for this time period because it is a drop-in cost.

If you have an older child who attends homework club or another club until 3:45 you may leave your younger child at CREW for $5.00 from 3 to 3:45pm. They will not be included in the snack count.

If you only need your child to come for the first hour of the program, 3 to 4pm, the cost is $8.00 if they will be included in the snack count.

Any time spent in CREW after 4pm is the full $12.00 cost.


Depending on your payment plan tuition is due the first Friday of the month or the week, regardless of days attended.  Checks can be made out to Cape May City Elementary School.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

It is very important that you send in a note to your child's teachers about their CREW schedule. 

Your child's teachers must know where to send your children at dismissal each day! 

Please send in a note ASAP!
