We hope this finds you all safe and healthy. As the school districts announce plans for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, we are assessing the needs of our Adventure Time families to determine what their child care needs will be. Here are the tentative plans our school districts have announced recently:
Oakland Unified School District: The Oakland Unified School District is planning 100% Distance Learning for the first few weeks of school. In light
of Governor Newsom’s announcement and the Oakland Unified School District’s campuses still closed to staff, our plans to offer care at the Oakland school sites must be put on hold. We will continue to work with the Oakland school principals, the Alameda County Health Services Department and State Licensing to ensure a safe re-opening transition. We look forward to seeing you and your children in the future. Please continue to check this website for updates. Although we really want to get back to serving students directly, we understand that there are strict guidelines regarding who can use public school campuses for what purposes during this pandemic time. We support OUSD's vision that in person services will begin with those students with the highest needs and will be collaborating with OUSD to determine how Adventure Time can best support. Please keep our reopening letter which was mailed in mid-July requesting you child's updated schedule. Once we know when we will be able to reopen in Oakland, and you know your child's schedule based on the school day, we will ask you to return it to us.
Castro Valley Unified School District: The Castro Valley Unified School District is planning 100% Distance Learning for the first few weeks of school. We re-opened Adventure Time at Independent School in Castro Valley on Monday, August 24, 2020. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Independent School to provide child care for our families. If you have enrolled your child and have not updated their distant learning phase schedule in our program, please email us with your child's name and schedule. Please click below to see the available time blocks. Children will be provided with opportunities during the day to work on their school assignments with support from Adventure Time teachers although we will be unable to provide 1 on 1 assistance. For more information about our re-opening, time blocks, and tuition, please click here.
Fremont Unified School District: The Fremont Unified School District is planning 100% Distance Learning for the beginning of the school year.
We are looking forward to re-opening Adventure Time at Niles Elementary School beginning Monday, August 31, 2020, Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Children will be provided with opportunities during the day to work on their school assignments in coordination with the FUSD Distance Learning schedule. Adventure Time teachers will provide help to children, although we will be unable to provide 1 on 1 assistance. For more information about our re-opening, time blocks, and tuition, please click here.
San Lorenzo Unified School District: The San Lorenzo Unified School District is planning 100% Distance Learning for the first weeks of the school year. We are looking forward to re-opening Adventure Time at Bay Elementary School as soon as we receive permission from the San Lorenzo Unified School District. We hope to be open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. We will expand to other San Lorenzo schools if enrollment increases. Depending on the SLUSD Distance Learning format, children will be provided with opportunities during the day to work on their school assignments with support from Adventure Time teachers although we will be unable to provide 1 on 1 assistance.
Napa Valley Unified School District: We are hoping to receive more information about the NVUSD plans for the re-opening of schools soon. We hope to be open as soon as school resumes at Vichy Elementary School, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Orinda Unified School District: The Orinda Unified School District is planning 100% Distance Learning for the first weeks of school. We opened our new child care program at Del Rey School, Orinda on Monday, August 17, 2020. The program operates 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please click on the "Del Rey, Orinda" link at the top of this page to enroll. Both full-day and afternoon half-day options are available, either Monday through Friday, Tuesday/Thursday, or Monday, Wednesday, Friday. The time block options are designed to meet parent needs, accommodate the distant learning schedules, and create and maintain consistent groups of 10 - 12 students with the same adult for safety purposes.
We are continuing our Fall enrollment for all of the Adventure Time sites. Due to the early school closures and covid-19 situation, we are enrolling children for the Fall online. Parents may enroll online or by mailing their application to: Adventure Time Extended Day Care, P.O. Box 5009, Berkeley, CA 94705.

Safety Preparations for Fall
We have been purchasing hand sanitizer, face masks, shields, gloves, and cleaning supplies in preparation for our re-opening in August. We are implementing recommended safety procedures to protect children and adults. As soon as we receive updates on the schedules of children who have submitted applications, and we get final guidelines from school districts and county health departments, we will be able to make decisions on how many children we will be able to accept into the Adventure Time programs. Thank you for your patience. We are all looking forward to starting the new school year.

Adventure Time is a great place for kids! Adventure Time is a before and after school day care program located on elementary school campuses for children in grades T-K and Kindergarten through 6, licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services. There are twenty-eight different locations in six Bay Area cities, and we are growing all the time!
Adventure Time provides activities for children before and after school in the areas of arts, crafts, sports, games, music, dance, drama, cooking, academic enrichment, and help with homework as well as high quality extended day care in a safe, nurturing environment. Activities are centered around bi-weekly themes. Children also have the opportunity for relaxation and quiet activities after being in school all day. We have a daily schedule which allows for spontaneity and the varying individual needs of the children.
Adventure Time Extended Day Care fulfills a real need both in terms of enrichment activities and extended day care. We provide a place where children can learn and play in a well-organized but flexible environment before and after school. Activities are designed to promote the creative and social development of the children. Particular emphasis is placed on the building and reinforcement of a positive self-image and the positive expression of cooperative feelings in a group situation. The outdoor motor skills program is an essential part of Adventure Time with emphasis on team effort and good sportsmanship.
