La Plazita After School Program
Our After School Program serves children from K to 5th grade in the Oakland area. Kids may be dropped off on site or we can pick up your child from select schools (contact us to see if we pick up from your child's school). The program runs from 3-6 Mon, Tue, Thur, Fri and 1-6 on Wed. Children are immersed in Spanish from the moment they are picked up to when they go home.
We learn more than Spanish at LPCB. We practice a variety of sports indoors and out: soccer, baseball, and football to name a few. Our dance and yoga is accessible to kids of all skill levels. Art and performance opportunities to bring out the creativity in all of us.
Our cooking program gets kids excited about food and teaches kids how to make their own meals. Our scratch recipes include food from all over the world: corn tortillas & sopa de albondigas (Mexico), pasta & cheese from cow's milk (Italy), blinis (Russia), pop-overs (England), fried rice & spring rolls (Asia) and more. We are mindful of food allergies and food restrictions whenever necessary. We make gluten free bread, pasta and other recipes, too.
LPCB has a large kitchen, a gym for sports activities, and a stage for performances. We have an extra large outside area for play and an indoor area for when it rains.
This year we're planning special after hours and weekend activities for the whole family to participate. A performance night, an art exhibit with a gallery opening, a movie night for parents to get some alone time, More activities to be announced at a later date.
If your school is not listed as a pick up point in the local area, you can get one started. We require a minimum of 4 families to enroll per school, at least 4 days a week for each child. Give us a call and we can assist with coordination of the school and contacting other parents.
