Learning Spaces

Essential Worker Childcare Programs

SMARTE Clubhouse
In compliance with the latest Health Order, SCSD will begin opening childcare to groups of 12 or fewer for children of Essential Workers. Our program offers a quiet place for students to complete classwork, access distance learning and participate in recreational/enrichment activities in a safe, 2:12 ratio environment. Our Preschool program is offering a similar, hands-on learning program for 3-5 year olds.

Our SMARTE after school programs have gone virtual!

We took our most popular activities and created a fun, engaging schedule that includes STEAM activities, art, game, movement, music, yoga/meditation, read alouds, and social interactions with friends for up to 3 hours per day. See our SMARTE page for more information.
