Please join us for an all new approach to afterschool time for kids in first – fifth grade! Our program is an afternoon oasis where kids are nurtured, respected and responsible for helping create community within our walls and around town. Participants help plan snack, activities, and adventures (along with time for relaxation and homework). Our curriculum is inquiry-based and driven by the needs, interests and conundrums of the kids.
New this year we will be offering care only at the Ocean View Park site. Transportation is provided from Marin and Cornell schools; Ocean View students are escorted to our building.
Enrollment is limited to 55 children per day with a staff to child ratio of no more than 1:12;
Enrollment is limited for children requiring transport from school to our site dependent on van capacity. Previously enrolled students and siblings receive priority enrollment.
Registration begins May 7th and is available online only.
Fees include child care on staff development days from 9:00 – 5:00, with extended care available from 8:00 – 9:00, and 5:00 – 6:00 for an extra fee.
