Discovery Club - School-Age Programs
Introduction to the Discovery Club Program
Discovery Club is a child care and enrichment program for working and busy parents who need assistance before and after school and throughout the summer months. The goal of Discovery Club is to provide children in transitional kindergarten through sixth grade with a physically and psychologically safe environment where they can grow developmentally and academically through fun and challenging enrichment activities. The program also provides children with opportunities to learn social and life skills they can share with others. Discovery Club children learn about their world and participate in their community 12 months per year. During the school year, the children complete community service projects that teach how they can contribute to their community. In the summer, children take many field trips learning what their community has to offer them.
Each Discovery Club teacher holds a Child Development Teacher Permit issued through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Child Development Assistants have educational courses and/or experience in Early Childhood Education. All Discovery Club Teachers and Assistants have fingerprint clearance through the Department of Justice and meet all requirements of all San Juan Unified School District employees.
Per CDC Guidelines, we can no longer offer an Open Door Policy.
Discovery Club encourages ongoing communication between staff and families as an essential part of reinforcing the child’s feeling that Discovery Club is a connection between home and school.

Due to the County Health Guidelines requiring a reduction of available seats for child care programs, seats will be assigned via random lottery, which mirrors our centralized enrollment process through San Juan Central. Priorities will be given in the lottery process to the following: students currently enrolled, children of essential workers, children of current staff whose site is their primary place of employment, and for siblings.
