Extended Day Child Care Program
Saratoga Union School District offers an extended daycare program The Tree House at the Argonaut, Foothill and Saratoga Elementary Schools for students in grades TK/K-5. We have named this nurturing, growth-minded, and child-centered place the Tree House. Saratoga is renowned as the City of Trees, and tree houses connote opportunities to go aloft into pleasant and secure surroundings to play, think, explore, climb, and enjoy a unique “child’s place.” All three elementary schools have a Tree House located on campus.
The program is designed and run by district staff and offers a variety of engaging activities that incorporate academics, youth development, and recreation. Fixed and flexible tuition plans are available to families, including a discounted tuition fee for siblings. The program runs from school dismissal time to 6:00 p.m. on days when school is in session. Before-school care may be available only if there is sufficient enrollment.
