Before and After School

SAY San Diego’s Before and After School programs promote, nurture, and enhance all areas of your child’s development. The programs provide safe, secure, flexible, and stimulating environments, supported by warm and caring staff responsive to the children’s emerging needs, interests, growth and self-esteem.

Fall 2021-2022 registration is now OPEN for preschool and school-age care for summer and fall programs.

Since 1983, SAY San Diego has been providing before and after school care programs that are licensed by the Department of Social Services, Community Care licensing at a number of sites in the San Diego Unified School District.

Through the licensed before and after school program, SAY ensures high-quality, well-supervised enrichment programs for school-age children. We offer a balance of activities that provide a creative, educational and recreational experience for children 5 to 12 years of age, including homework assistance, sports activities, arts & crafts, and psychosocial education designed to develop self-esteem and teach skills to resist peer pressure.


Enrollment is open to all students attending the host elementary school. Fees vary depending on the specific site. Discounts are available for additional children in the same family.  Financial assistance may be available for eligible families.

Geographic Area

Our licensed before and after school programs are located at 17 elementary schools within the San Diego Unified School District.

Due to licensing guidelines, each site is licensed for a predetermined enrollment number so after we have reached our maximum number of children we will create a wait list.


Fall Registration Begins March 2nd – 20th for Currently Enrolled Families as of Feb. 14th.

$50 annual non-refundable fee is required for School-Age Programs. $200 annual non-refundable instructional fee is required for Pre-School Programs.
