Non-PTA Extended Day Programs


Yorkville Youth Athletic Association @PS 59



The Yorkville After School program is offered on site at PS 59 Mondays through Fridays.

Families are able to sign up for one to five days per week.
The program runs from 3pm to 6pm each day. 
During each session, children will move between the cafeteria, the gym and the roof (weather permitting). 
  • Time in the cafeteria will be dedicated to games and arts and crafts, and children will also have the option to spend time reading. 
  • Time in the gym and on the roof will be spent playing a range of sports. Coaches will introduce new sports throughout the season, teaching the fundamentals of each and keeping the children actively engaged.

PS 59 Chess Team



The Chess After School program is offered on site at PS 59 on Mondays and Fridays.  


From complete beginners to advancing tournament players, our goal is that all PS 59 players can experience both the joy & significant social/educational benefits of learning and playing chess.


 Our in-person programming will match players into groups based on skill, interest level & age. This allows coaches to identify and create the right training environment for each player (complete beginner - advanced competitors).

For more information, please go to or email
