• Our school-age program is based on the belief that children are decision-makers and should be allowed to make choices.  The program encourages development of socialization skills, gross and fine motor skills, problem solving and cooperative skills in a stimulating and safe environment. Children may choose to participate in arts and crafts, organized games and sports, computers, science, and other enriching and developmentally appropriate activities. CDC also offers a daily homework time and a nutritious afternoon snack.

    The school-age program staff consists of individuals who come from a variety of different backgrounds ranging from credentialed teachers, college students who are taking education classes, and people who just genuinely love children!  All school-age teachers are fingerprinted and trained in first aid and CPR.


    CDC offers before and after school childcare at all seven Solana Beach School District Schools: Carmel Creek, Skyline, Solana Highlands, Solana Pacific, Solana Ranch, Solana Santa Fe and Solana Vista.
