Before School Care

Drop off starts at 7:00 am
Max enrollment of 40 students
Students will have the opportunity to engage in activities that promote the development of social skills such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving
Students will participate in small activities such as word searches, coloring, reading, etc.

After School Care

The After School Program has three main components: Enrichment, Physical Fitness, and Academic Support.

Enrichment: A great enrichment program enables students to realize their potential in a variety of settings beyond the classroom, allowing them to pursue subjects that are of interest to them. Previously facilitated enrichment activities inclues arts & crafts, gardening, sports, cooking, and more!

Physical Fitness: Outdoor play is a critical component of healthy child development. Time spend outside can lead to better physical and mental health, improved sleep and cognitive, social, and emotional gains for young children. Structured outside time includes student-led games, class competitions, and more. We encourage child exploration and curiosity.

Academic Support: The academic block focuses on strengthening students’ academic skills, setting up the potential for long term success in life and in school! Although the program offers homework support, they cannot guarantee that all homework will be completed.

Bobcat Bridges utilizes the same Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) guidelines as Chabot Elementary to help children manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
