About Our School-Age Program

An important quality of our School-Age Program is the extended family atmosphere that exists for children both before- and after-school. Each child receives individual attention in the relaxed but active environment, with attention given to social needs as well as homework. Children have the need and opportunity to relax both before and after their busy day at school, complete assigned school projects, and pursue other activities of interest to them.

The School-Age Program is designed to reflect the interests and capabilities of 5-12 year olds and to provide children time to play outdoors, interact with friends, explore creative arts, work puzzles, and construct with various manipulative toys and blocks. In addition, the CEC staff recognizes that children need dedicated space, time, and support for their daily homework assignments, and every effort will be made to ensure that they receive these.

Goals for the children include:

  • To help children learn to live a successful life with love at the center of all experience.
  • To provide a program that allows children to develop in the areas of social, emotional cognitive, and physical growth.
  • To develop a positive self concept through social interactions that involve cooperation, conflict resolution, and relationship building.


Our School-Age Program is at seven sites with each site serving kindergartners through sixth graders. Our Oak Grove and the Caltech sites provide only after-school care, beginning at 11:30 am, while our other three La Cañada sites begin providing care beginning at 7:00 am.
