Extended Care

“Kids love it and never want to go home because it’s so fun. We get to draw, and read, and play with Legos. Our friends are there, so we get to be with them, and we can play outside too. It’s the funnest place in the world!” – Nina and Elana

Extended Care was developed in response to the growing need for quality, developmental childcare before and after school. The Extended Care program includes sports, games and team building activities.

Extended Care teachers are trained in positive discipline and use this approach to encourage children to regulate their own behavior.  Our goal is to provide a safe, fun and respectful after-school environment where children can interact with a variety of age groups. The program fosters the development of positive self concept by providing an environment that is accepting and supportive of every child.

The daily schedule includes planned, supervised activities, both indoors and outdoors.  A nutritious snack is served in the afternoon.

Parents are welcome to visit the program, meet the teachers, and ask questions. To schedule an observation or for further information, please call the Mulberry office at 408-358-9080.

Hours

The Extended Care program is available to Mulberry students from Junior Kindergarten through 8th grade. The program operates every day from 8:00am to 6:00pm, on days that school is in session. It is closed during all school holidays.  However, as a service to our families, care is offered on elementary and middle school conference days and some in-service days.

Fees

An annual enrollment fee of $10 is required at the time of school registration from all who plan to use this program. The cost is $11.00 per hour.
