We are pleased to announce that
Adventure Time Extended Day Care
began offering day care and enrichment activities at
Del Rey Elementary School on August 17, 2020 from
7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We
are working with Ms.Theurer and the Parent's Club to accommodate the distant learning component of Del Rey School as well as the hybrid schedule once children return to their classrooms for in person instruction. Our goal is to meet the child care needs of the Del Rey families.
We have implemented best practices to keep children, teachers, and staff healthy during the current covid-19 pandemic. Our safety procedures are consistent with school precautions as well as with the Contra Costa County Health Department guidelines. Our goal is to keep children together in consistent groups of 10 to 12 children with the same adult teacher and to keep the groups more than 6 feet apart from each other. Tables, chairs, games, educational materials, and surfaces in the classroom are cleaned and sanitized repeatedly throughout the day. All of our staff members wear masks.
To begin the school year, we are offering the following options for child care. These time blocks are designed to accommodate the needs of families during the distant learning phase of school. Please list one of the following time blocks on your application:
7:00 a.m. or 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
7:00 a.m. or 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
7:00 a.m. or 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Monday-Friday, or Tuesday/Thursday, or

To accommodate the Distant Learning schedule of Del Rey School, we will also offer the option of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00, 5:00, or 6:00 p.m on Mondays only.

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
Please indicate your choice of time block and days of the week from the above choices on your application.
Schedules must be the same from week-to-week, but full day and half day options may be combined.
For example, a schedule could be:
Mondays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Tuesdays, 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Wednesdays, 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Thursdays, 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Fridays, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
This is an example of combining half and full day options.
Tuition is based on $8.50 per hour for full day and $8.95 per hour for half day. For families with two or more siblings enrolled on the same days and for Orinda Union School District employees, there is a 20% discount on total tuition ($6.80 per hour for full day and $7.16 per hour for half day). If full day and half day time blocks are combined in the same week, tuition will be pro-rated accordingly. These are the time blocks and tuition rates for the phase one distant learning school schedule. The rates will increase when hybrid learning begins, and the time blocks will change to accommodate school hours.
If you would like to enroll your child, please send us an email with your child's name, grade, school name, and desired schedule chosen from the options above. Email
