We serve girls 6-11 years old, 1st through 5th grades. If your daughter is 5 years old, once she has completed Kindergarten and turns 6 she can enroll in Girls Inc. afterschool program for girls or Alameda Island Kids which offers after school care at seven school sites that serve kindergarteners.
If I sign my daughter up after a quarter begins, is my fee pro-rated?
No, it is a flat fee for each quarter, no matter when you register or how many days per week your daughter attends.
Does my daughter have to be enrolled in Alameda schools to attend Girls Inc.?
No, we serve all girls from all cities, whether they are in public, private or are home schooled.
Is it OK if my daughter doesn't attend every day?
Yes. Our classes are structured so that if she comes on the same day each week, she will get the most out of our programs. She does not have to attend every day. However, we highly encourage her to attend every day so she receives the full benefit of the Girls Inc. programs.
Is Girls Inc. open for early release days?
Usually. If the day in question is an AUSD district-wide early release day, we will open when school lets out. Please call to us to verify whether we will open early and at what time.
Is Girls Inc. open for AUSD non-student days and holiday breaks?
The Girls Afterschool Program will be closed for holidays and AUSD Non-student Days. For your convenience, Meyers Camp will be open on AUSD Non-school days for an additional fee.
