South San Francisco, CA July 17, 2017 Press Release City of South San Francisco
The City teamed with the South San Francisco Unified School District to secure the necessary facilities and funding to expand the after-school programs
The City of South San Francisco is pleased to announce it is expanding its licensed Before-and-After-School Childcare Programs at Buri Buri and Monte Verde elementary schools. Through collaboration between the South San Francisco Unified School District (SSFUSD)
, all students of families formerly on the waiting list will now be enrolled in the City’s Parks and Recreation Department-operated programs beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.
“It’s extremely important for us to offer licensed, high quality, and affordable childcare, so we consider this a huge victory for the City, SSFUSD, and our community to now be able to welcome students to the Before-and-After School programs at Buri Buri and Monte Verde elementary schools,” said Mayor Pradeep Gupta. “The entire City Council supports this needed expansion and made it a budget priority for this year.”
The City of South San Francisco’s Parks and Recreation Department
operates six programs, serving about 600 children throughout the SSFUSD. Due to the increasing demand for licensed and affordable childcare in South San Francisco, the City teamed with the SSFUSD to secure the necessary facilities and funding to expand the capacity of the Before-and-After-School Childcare Programs at Buri Buri and Monte Verde elementary schools.
“These before-and-after-school programs are very popular with the community and continue to grow each year,” said Sharon Ranals, Parks and Recreation Director for the City of South San Francisco. “As a parent, I know the lengths we go through for our children. Childcare is not an option but a necessity. I am very excited about this expansion.”
The City’s Parks and Recreation Department is only one of a few providers that offer after-school programs for the SSFUSD. As a result of the ongoing partnership between the City and the SSFUSD, the Parks and Recreation Department is able to offer quality care at no cost to families at three locations, thanks to grant-funded programs at two schools and the Community Learning Center, which is provided through the South San Francisco Library.
“I strongly believe that that every family in South San Francisco who needs childcare should have access to it,” said Ranals. “Thanks to our continued collaboration with the School District, we are now able to significantly improve availability.”
