CHIME Afterschool and Home Club

CHIME Afterschool and Homework Club is happy to offer low cost, accessible after school programs for our students throughout the school year (and often during school break times as well). However, it is important to acknowledge that these programs are increasingly expensive to provide and are not covered by the state funding we receive. The costs for the 15-16 school year are as follows:

K5 Afterschool Program 1 Student 2 Students
Hourly Rate $8.00 $14.00
6-8 Homework Club 1 Student  2 Students
Hourly Rate $8.00 $14.00
Students picked up after 5:30 PM will incur a charge of $1.00 per minute. No Exceptions

In order for CHIME to operate these programs, we need to access funding from our families who use the programs.

If you qualify for CalFresh, CalWorks, Kin-GAP, FDPIR, are a state appointed guardian to a foster child or demonstrate a financial need you MAY be eligible for financial assistance to attend the CHIME afterschool program. Please contact the following organizations directly for additional information:

Child Care Resource Center (CCRC) offers several financial assistance, or subsidy, programs to qualifying families on a non-discriminatory basis. For information contact the CCRC directly at

Connections for Children administers several programs that assist families with child care expenses. Subsidy is available to assist low-income families with partial or full payment towards child care while parents work, attend school or training programs. Funding for subsidy comes from a variety of Federal, State, and local funding.

Children's Home Society of California has three Child Care Assistance Programs that provide subsidized child care services to eligible families, including Alternative Payment, CalWORKs, and Child Protective Services.
