Alameda Island Kids (AIK) Program
Visit ourto enroll your child/ren. Note: For each AIK site, your child/ren must be enrolled at that school in order to attend.
During this past year, we have been working on making enrollment and payments easier (and more Covid friendly!) for our families. We are delighted to launch our online enrollment and payment system. This new system will allow us to be more eco friendly and will allow parents the ease of paying online and receiving monthly statements via email. Families that prefer to pay by check will still have that option.
We have tested the system and hope you find it helpful and easy to use. However, we are always open to feedback. If you have any questions or thoughts on how we can make this system more parent-friendly, please let us know.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you all this fall.
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 (or 117 days for the 3 days of care pattern). The 3 days a week care pattern is only available to 1st through 5th grades.
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 or 13 days per period for 3 days a week of care.
