Program Information

Our school-age recreation centers offer adult supervised before and after school programs and activities under the guidelines of the California Department of Social Services. Children enrolled in kindergarten through high school are eligible to join our school-age centers. Younger children not meeting the age requirements may attend one of our licensed development preschools for ages 6 weeks through pre-kindergarten.

KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
The Kindergarten Program is designed especially for our younger members who are enrolled in Kindergarten. With specially designated rooms designed with the help of early childhood education specialists, children have fun doing activities like music, arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor games and learning at play stations that encourage reading, writing, art, science, dramatic play, and more. While older kids are still at school, staff lead Kindergartners in activities throughout the Club, including the computer lab, games room, and teaching kitchen. We also provide homework assistance and other educational activities designed to prepare your child for first grade.

1ST GRADE & UP
Our daily schedule offers children many different activities to choose from, including activities in five core program areas. With so much to do, kids are constantly busy making new friends and having fun! Qualified recreation staff enthusiastically supervise activities while encouraging children to play fairly and safely. Our program differs from most with its diverse range of exciting activities including computer learning centers, sports, arts and crafts, cooking, indoor and outdoor games, relays, tournaments, contests, field trips, games room, special event days, and much, much more! We also offer homework assistance and educational activities designed to promote success in school. For more details, be sure to view our monthly calendars at the Club.

TEEN PROGRAM
Our teen program is designed especially for youth entering grades 6 and up. We plan special activities, community service projects, fun field trips and club events to help build friendships, leadership qualities, self esteem and just have fun! There are teen activities every day, and extended hours most Fridays until 8:00pm. Check the weekly calendars at the Club for special events.
