Got kids? The experts say: Let them play!
Our after-school program, provided by the Human Services and Recreation Department in partnership with Pasadena Unified School District, lets children choose from scads of activities.
The goal is to provide safe and healthy settings that are fun for children ages 5 to 14, including a weekly schedule of art and crafts, organized as well as spontaneous games and sports, a health and wellness program, homework assistance, free snacks at most sites, special events, walking field trips and more.
After-school programs are at PUSD playgrounds throughout Pasadena and operate from the time the school dismissal bell rings until 6 p.m. daily. Programs are closed on school holidays and pupil-free days.
Enrollment fees per school semester are just $25 per child and $22.50 for each additional sibling, and cover program materials and supplies, wristband, photo identification card, secondary insurance in case of emergency and some special events and activities.
Enrollment is limited, but there's still room at many sites. You can register online here.
