School Age Center

The School Age Program provides an after-school recreation program for children during the academic year. The program provides developmentally appropriate arts and crafts, life skills and sports activities, occasional community outings and quiet time for homework. The hours of operation are 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for Kindergarteners; and 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays for 2nd through 4th graders. On Wednesdays (public school minimum days), care is available from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for all school-age children. Extended care is available on a sign-up basis on some Santa Cruz City Schools closure days (University closure days excluded).
