Fall 2015/2016 Child Care

2015-2016 Before & After School Child Care Information (K-5th Grade)

The Before/After School Child Care Program operates September–June. Your child will be well supervised in a safe environment with a variety of recreational activities including: arts and crafts, games, sports, and a fun fitness program. There is a short time allotted each day for homework, however, this is a recreation program with the emphasis on socialization and keeping the children active. 

Child Care facilities are located adjacent to Lupine Hills Elementary School, Ohlone Elementary School and Hanna Ranch Elementary School. The 3 and 4 day options have been eliminated and we now only offer a single 5 day option starting Fall 2015-2016 school year. 

Don't forget the REC EXPO Saturday, April 30, 2016 at the Hercules Community Center from 10:00am-2:00pm. Sign up for summer and fall child care, summer camp, and recreation classes. On this day only receive 10% off programs/classes that are paid off in full.
