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 childcare 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

Licensed child care programs are located at 18 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 waitlist. If you are interested in registering for enrollment or the waitlist please return the registration form with your processing fee. This does not guarantee enrollment; if there is a waitlist, you will be notified as space becomes available.
