Alameda Island Kids is a service provided by Girls Incorporated of the Island City since 1981. We provide state licensed, on-site childcare specially designed to care for boys and girls in kindergarten through 5th grade at five elementary schools in Alameda: Bay Farm, Earhart, Edison, Franklin, and Otis Schools. At each school site, we maintain safe, quality centers while adhering to the required school-age ratio of 14 children to 1 adult. We have early pick-up for children in all grades, K-5th, on days with AUSD early release times, including during the first three weeks of the school year.
Alameda Island Kids before school and after school services are specially designed to provide age-appropriate daily activities including organized games and sports, cooking experiences, science, dramatic play, arts and crafts and much more. Activities are designed to develop social skills and build confidence.
Alameda Island Kids specialists are highly skilled, multi-cultural professionals who speak a total of seven languages and who have remained with us for an average of ten years (the normal retention rate for employees in the childcare industry is three years).
Childcare is provided during early release days in addition to regular school days. Childcare is billed at a flat monthly rate and is based on 180 AUSD calendar days of school.
The same amount is billed each month whether it’s for 15 days in November, 30 days in August and September, or 25 days in May and June. This averages to be 20 days per period for 5 days a week of care.
