Kindergarten before and after school care is also provided at the SAC. We offer diverse activities from our affiliated organizations, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and 4-H (Head, Heart, Hands, and Health) to meet the needs and interests of Edward’s AFB youth. The school-age program offers childcare and transportation before school and after school. A USDA approved breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack are provided daily. The SAC Annex is equipped with a variety of activity rooms, playgrounds and an outdoor basketball court. The School-Age Program has been accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA). This national recognition shows our commitment to quality and continuous program improvement. The philosophy of the School-Age Program is based on the belief that all children are strong, powerful and competent individuals who are constantly learning and growing. The mission of the program is to provide a stimulating environment where children can explore, develop and learn at their own pace. Additionally, it is to provide a child-centered program in a warm, secure environment with love and good physical care. Each child has unique abilities that will be recognized and nurtured.
