The Sebastopol Union School District is pleased to offer an extended child care program for grades K-6, on-site at Park Side  School from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Care is provided before and after school as well as on school vacation days.

In operating the school age child care program, the District’s goal is to provide a safe, fun, enriching, “quality” program for children that is convenient for parents. We believe that a quality school age care program can provide positive environments, caring relationships and enriching age-appropriate experiences that contribute to a child’s social, physical, and emotional development.

CASTLE is a place where children can: interact with their peers in a relaxed atmosphere, explore their interests and abilities, choose from a wide range of supervised and self-directed activities, enjoy healthy snacks, work on their homework, or just chill out. Our dedicated staff makes it a priority to teach the children in our care the social skills they need to get along with others. We provide a chance for children to have childhood time; time which is active yet unhurried.
