Out of School Time (OST) Program

Educate. Enrich. Discover.

Finding just the right after school program to keep your child engaged in between school and home can be a challenge. After all, you don’t want basic childcare while you’re working; you want to make sure your child is actually thriving. SFUSD’s Early Education Department launched the Out-Of-School Time (OST) Program to fill this need, helping children in transitional kindergarten (TK) through fifth grade use their free time by building on what they’ve learned during the school day, by developing new skills, and by discovering new interests.

We operate 79 classrooms at 21 sites with 2200 students throughout the city, cultivating a safe, high quality and culturally sensitive space for your child throughout the entire year – including spring and summer breaks and teacher in-service days. For your convenience, OST also provides busing between some of SFUSD’s elementary schools to program sites at our early education schools, and many of our OST sites are also located near public transportation hubs.
