Welcome to Afterschool Care Enrichment!
Afterschool Care Enrichment, also known as ACE is founded by Eve Daskalakis who has served families in the San Carlos Childcare Community since 2008. ACE offers a flexible innovative licensed childcare program focused on enrichment and youth development to challenge our upper elementary students in our growing world. ACE will provide a familiar family oriented environment by creating a space students feel safe, at home, challenged and excited to be a part of each day.
Distance Learning Support/Hybrid Schedule-COVID
ACE will be offering a full day care program during Covid-19 school scheduling that aligns with the schedule the district has assigned. During Distance learning Part Time and Full time options will be offered from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm to support students and families. During Hybrid scheduling we offer one schedule that aligns with the block A and B schedule. ACE provides care on the days your child does not attend school and provides a three hour window to support distance learning in addition to our enrichment programming. Parents will also have the option to sign their child up for a 30 minute tutoring session with their teachers on the days they are in school to add to our distance learning support and is included as part of our programming. Please see Programs for more details.
Healthy and Active Lifestyle
Promoting healthy lifestyle habits starts from a young age. We at ACE encourage this Philosophy by serving nutritious snacks each day and providing Physical Activity. Eating right and being physically active is part of each day at ACE. We provide structured and free play based physical activity programming and offer nutritious snacks daily which always include fresh vegetables, fruit, milk and water.
Health and Hygiene
ACE is committed to providing a safe environment for our children's social development. We follow the Four Pillars framework essential to creating and sustaining the safest, most healthy environment for students.
Health and Hygiene - We practice daily hygiene routines, conducting daily health screenings, including temperature taking, providing essential protective equipment (EPE), and conducting effective cleaning routines.
Physical Distancing - We have spaces set up in our classrooms for each student that provides safe distancing.
Face Coverings - All students and Staff are required to wear masks at all times while on campus at ACE.
Limited Gatherings- Students at ACE are placed in groups of 12 with 2 staff members.
Daily Sanitation: Daily Sanitation takes place throughout the day at ACE. In addition we run Disinfectant Fogging Machines each day at close of the program.
S.T.E.A.M. is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. S.T.E.A.M. Is an important part of our programming that will be implemented each day at ACE. Students have the opportunity to choose daily from a wide variety of structured activities led by our staff. ACE implements what we like to call "Out of the box thinking". This time encourages our students the space to be independent. Our staff will help guide them through problem solving methods so that students can create and implement their own ideas and visions as part of our ACE day.
