SMARTE Afterschool Program

The SMARTE Afterschool Program is dedicated to enriching children’s lives during out-of-school time! The program provides every child with a fun, safe, secure, and welcoming place to spend time each day. Our programs are available to students at the TK-3 school sites - Arundel, Brittan Acres, Heather and White Oaks. Each program offers age-appropriate educational and enriching activities in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Families can choose a five-day, three-day (M,W,F) or two-day (T,TH) program to best fit their scheduling needs. 

Enrichment Classes

Looking for a little extra something for your child to do after school?  SMARTE is excited to be partnering with KidzToPros for after school enrichment registration and programs. Through this partnership with KidzToPros we are able to provide even more enrichment opportunities while continuing partnerships with many returning vendors. A wide variety of after school enrichment classes will be offered, from sports to creative arts, to science.

Registration for these courses is now open!  To learn more about each of the activities – descriptions, cost, location, etc. – please visit the KidzToPros website at If you have any questions about the enrichment opportunities or registration, please send an email to or call (877) 202-1554 or (510) 356-8726.

San Carlos Belmont Afterschool

Begun in 1981, San Carlos Belmont After School is a private school-aged childcare company with a fully-licensed staff that meets California State Department of Social Service requirements as well as advanced training in early childhood education, safety, and health-related issues. Each center has its own 2400 square foot classroom and unlimited access to the playground area of the school it serves.

Children come to the After School program directly after their school day ends and stay until their parents can pick them up after work.  After school closes at 6:00 pm.  After School also offers a Breakfast Club program from 7:30 am until the beginning of the school day.  Late bird kindergarten students can attend until their day begins at 9:25 am.
