Sacramento Street Preschool
Sacramento Street Preschool provides a small, individualized program for twenty children per day, ages two years and nine months to five years of age. Interest areas include dramatic play, arts and crafts, music, science, manipulative materials, and gross motor play. We believe that children learn through play and thus provide ample opportunity throughout the day for these activities.
Agassiz Baldwin Afterschool
The Agassiz Baldwin Kindergarten and 1st-5th Grade Afterschool Programs offer an arts-based curriculum and daily choices that include organized sports, clubs, homework assistance, and free activity time every day. We offer additional specialist programming that includes cartooning, drama, dance, taekwondo, and piano or cello lessons.
Outback Summer Program
Outback Summer Program serves kindergarten–6th grade children for an eight-week period with weekly enrollment available. Curriculum is based around international themes with a wide range of activities that offer something for everyone. Children can choose from arts and crafts, sports, nature exploration, cooking, and games. Special morning classes include dance, drama, and cartooning.
“How Agassiz is able to hire (and keep) so many good teachers still surprises us. This year’s staff was terrific: creative and warm and fun to be around.” —Parent
“I can’t tell you how impressed we were with creative projects that challenged the kids to think broadly, learn new skills, apply skills in new ways, and even see the world around them in a different way, all while having a great time. The curriculum is the most creative and engaging that we’ve experienced.” —Parent
“I like the neighborhood feel. It gives me a very comfortable and reassuring feeling about my children’s out-of-school time.” —Parent and educator
“Outback Summer Program is what summer is supposed to be —relaxed and creative homegrown fun with kids of all ages in a giant backyard! Our son and daughter loved every single summer day at Outback for five summers and now they both are Counselors- in-Training!” —Parent
