Expanded Learning FAQ

The Boys and Girls Clubs of San Leandro offers school-based expanded learning programs, school year day camp, summer camp, and a year-round teen center known as THE CLUB. We currently offer Expanded Learning Programs at 17 elementary and five middle schools across San Leandro and San Lorenzo. Enrollment for grant-funded programs may be limited or prioritized for qualifying families. We also offer a teen program for high school students at our Clubhouse; more information on THE CLUB can be found here.

Program structures vary by site. All programs have common core components, including snack/supper time, physical activity, academic support, enrichment activities, and time to collaborate with peers.

After-school programs are held on the same campus where your child attends school. Click here for a complete list of school sites.

The ratio is 1:10 for TK and kinder members and 1:20 for grades 1st through 8th.

Yes. Our TK-K-5, and middle school programs are run separately. Students are also separated by grade within the program. There is occasional overlap at times; however, students are generally placed in groups with peers close to their age.

Yes, your child will have the same Youth Development Professional (YDP).

Yes, snacks are provided every day. If your child has allergic reactions to certain foods, we ask that you please notify the staff of those allergies by indicating them on the membership application in the registration process online. If your child(ren) needs more snacks than the program provides, please provide your child(ren) with additional healthy (no candy or soda) snacks. Every program welcomes donations of healthy snacks.

Our school-based programs are free. Funding for the expanded learning program is provided by Senate Bill 129, and Assembly Bill (AB) 130. The purpose of these funds is for school districts to offer expanded learning programs for grades TK-8th grade during after-school hours. Middle school grade offerings may vary at each school site. Please check with your Program Director for specific grades offered.

Children can only attend the program at a school where they are enrolled. There are no programs located on-site at high schools. Teen programming takes place at our main Clubhouse at 2200 San Leandro Blvd., in San Leandro.

Each school site will provide a mandatory parent/caregiver orientation. During orientation, parents will have an opportunity to meet our staff and learn about our programs, which include Club expectations such as attendance requirements and our code of conduct.

Boys & Girls Clubs programming starts after school and ends at 6 p.m. Children must be signed-out by a parent or caregiver by 6 p.m. Middle school parents/caregivers can fill out a walk-home waiver. This allows the student to self-sign out of the program and walk home. Program start time will always align with the early release/TK-Kinder schedule per school site.

Attendance requirements vary by site and funding sources. We encourage all students in our programs to attend Monday- Friday from school dismissal until 6 p.m. If your child needs to be picked up early, please contact the Program Director for information on the early release process.
