Playlab / Extended Day Committee update Winter 2021


Our playlab after school program will be temporarily on hold in the first Winter 2021 session. Due to low enrollment in the fall, we’re unable to keep on our Program Director, Lauren Goodrich. On behalf of the PTA, we wish to thank Lauren for her 4 1/2 years of dedicated work at and expansion of playlab.


Going forward, the PTA Extended Day Committee is looking for volunteers. Let’s get a robust committee of parents together to reshape the new online playlab with easy access, equitable enriching classes for our kids!


Contact Jen Waters at to join the committee and share your ideas. 

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 Logo
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 Afterschool's Logo
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.

Kids Orbit will be opening an 8-week outdoor fall season on Monday, September 21.

Our schedule will include both MID-DAY PLAY and AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS.  These programs will continue to operate even if schools go "full remote."  Please press on the Kids orbit logo above  for more information.
