YMCA Anchor After-School Program

SFUSD K-5 Public Elementary School

Our stellar After School Program through Stonestown YMCA is back on for the 2021-2022 school year! Anchor offers on-site, before and after school care, available for all grades (K-5). Commodore Sloat students can attend 5, 3, or 2 days per week (subject to availability of spots), and some full subsidies and scholarships are available. The program runs from the end of the school day (2:55pm M, Tu, Th, F, or 1:4pm on Wed) until 6:00pm. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Morning care is also available from 7am until the start of school at 8:40am.

We are committed to providing high quality programming that focuses on youth development theory, Restorative Practices, the development of 21st Century skills, socio-emotional development, critical thinking skills, and leadership development. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of our diverse school community in an equitable manner.

Anchor offers:

  • Enrichments (sports, arts, etc.)
