Answer:

PlayCV is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization #87-1612445 whose mission is to bring fun and enriching after-school classes, programs, camps and activities to TK - 8th grade students in our community.


We strive to bring enrichment programs that both further and introduce subject matters of interest. Our intention is to foster team and individual growth while developing social interactions.


Our success lies in leveraging our community's strengths and talents to the greatest extent possible. We recruit local experts in their fields, count on the most caring community members, and support our local businesses. None of this is possible without the support of our community.


PlayCV is Where Youth Shine. Our events showcase the achievements of our students to family and friends.


We can't wait to see you there!

Question:
Can you tell me about what happens at PlayCV?
Answer:

We offer two different types of programs; The Full P.L.A.Y. and Enrichment Classes. The Full P.L.A.Y. is essentially a school-year long program that runs every day that school is open. Enrichment Classes are an a-la-carte offering of classes that typically lasts one hour per day, one or two days per week, in 8-week 9-week or 10-week long sessions. 


All our programs begins after-school in the multi-purpose room or cafeteria where the children are served a snack provided by the district. Then they're off to their respective programs.


Students enrolled in The Full P.L.A.Y. will get an opportunity to join two or more PlayCV Enrichment Classes during each 8-week to 10-week session. For a list of the various Enrichment Classes that are available each session, please see our course catalog. Students enrolled in The Full P.L.A.Y. do not need to also enroll in Enrichment Classes, as they may be already included.


PlayCV ensures a ratio of one (1) instructor for every twenty (20) students. For TK and Kindergarten, the ratio is one (1) instructor for every ten (10) students.

Question:
What's the difference between PlayCV and other extended daycare services such as Adventure Time, Kids Care, etc.?
Answer:

PlayCV is not an extended daycare service. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing enrichment classes and activities to Castro Valley Schools. At the heart of everything we do is the goal of bringing back a little fun, to introduce topics not normally available at our schools, and to provide more diverse social engagement opportunities. We are not replacing any existing program, such as Adventure Time, Kids Care, BeeBest, iBest, etc. We only provide additional options for you and your students.
