Out-of-school time is a supervised program that young people regularly attend when school is not in session, whether it be spring break, summer break, before/after school care, etc.
If your child is attending the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), some sites may have before and/or after-school programs, please speak to your school to inquire if they have before or after-school care. If you’d like a listing of summer programs outside of SFUSD, please check out the following options
We recommend starting your search well in advance, afterschool programs begin taking applications as early as March of the previous school year.
**Please know some programs may have their own tuition assistance, so we encourage families to inquire if their program has this support.
