Sebastopol Charter School Aftercare is Ready for the New School Year!

*Our Aftercare program follows all Sebastopol Charter School COVID-19 health and safety protocols, just as during the school day.

Our program is designed to foster academic, social, emotional, and individual growth in all of our students. The time spent in aftercare is not an extension of the school day, it is instead a time for students to recharge and learn in a relaxed and nurturing environment. Students will have time for self-directed play to promote connections with others in a positive way, and stimulate creative thinking and exploration. It is the goal of our program to provide a familiar place where students feel safe, empowered, and eager to learn.

Aftercare provides a time in which students are able to relax and unwind. Aftercare is set up to be a unique environment where students of all ages can interact and play together. In aftercare we spend time outdoors playing group sports, reading and drawing in the sunshine, and running around our spacious school yard. Inside, the cozy corner provides a space where students can settle down and read a book, play a board game, or just unwind from the day. The craft cabinet is full of supplies that are great for creative minds to make exciting things.

Sebastopol Charter School offers two separate aftercare programs

Kindergarten Aftercare begins at 12:30 and runs until 3:00 Monday-Friday.

Grades Aftercare (1-8) runs from 3-5 pm on long days, and 12:45-5:00 on short days.

While we encourage kindergarteners to be picked up at 3:00, they may attend Grades Aftercare from 3-5 pm if necessary.

Aftercare Meals: Aftercare provides time for the Kindergarteners to have a home-packed lunch right after school lets out. A nutritious snack is also provided to all students in Aftercare at around 2:00pm and 3:30pm. 

Please pack a lunch for your students if they attend Kindergarten Aftercare.

Aftercare Rates: Once the Aftercare Registration Form has been submitted, students may attend whenever needed. Aftercare rates are $9 per hour, with a sibling discounted rate of $7 per hour.

Registration forms can be completed online. Additional paper copies of this form are also available upon request by emailing Essie Bishop at [email protected].

Aftercare Pick-up windows are at 3:00pm, 4:00pm & 5:00pm. Students are to be picked up from the Kindergarten yard or the Aftercare classroom and signed out by an authorized adult.

*Please note that our Aftercare program is only available to families that are currently enrolled at Sebastopol Charter School.

Subsidized Aftercare is available through 4Cs of Sonoma County and River to Coast Children’s Services. Visit their websites to learn more, or email Essie Bishop, SCS Aftercare Administrator with any questions at [email protected].
