School Year Supervision, Enrichment, & Day Camps

Due to statewide distance learning to kick off the school year, we're all getting a little creative. Here is a list of programs offering daytime supervision for distance learning along with recreation and enrichment to support working parents and the kids we love (for a minimum of 3 hours). We will also be rounding up online classes and in-person classes soon!

Please drop any other publically available daytime supervision and study hall support in the comments (like not your backyard pod, please)!

Thanks to Bladium Study Hall, East Bay Dance Center, Kids Gym Berkeley, and Trackers for sponsoring our Guide to Daytime Enrichment and Supervision for East Bay kids.
