OV Redwoods program

Program Description

...this program has been updated in alignment with AUSD Temporary Housing and will begin 2019-20 school year...
Redwoods is a part of Albany Children’s Center. Redwoods serves children in first and second  grades, providing high quality school-age care before and after the elementary school day. The Redwoods program provides a respectful, safe and engaging atmosphere in which the children learn in a play-based environment.

All children enrolled in Redwoods will be engaged in thematic learning experiences that involve reading, writing, arts and crafts, science, math, and social studies. The learning is play-based and offered both inside the classroom and outside. We implement a developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive program. We enable children to feel pride about their identity and we enable them to develop respect and appreciation for differences.
Beginning in August, 2019 Redwoods will be located at Albany Middle School because the Ocean View first and second graders will be going to school at AMS Annex.

The morning, before care, program is available 7:30-9:30.  Breakfast snack is provided during the morning hours.

The afternoon, after care, program is open 2:00-6:00. Afternoon snack is provided during the afternoon hours.
