After School Enrichment

After School classes in Mill Valley date back to the early 1970's when state and county budget cuts discontinued many of the elective programs originally provided to students during the school day. 

Mill Valley Recreation's After School Enrichment Program was developed over 20 years ago to establish programming for Kindergarten - 5th grade students.  As a successful outcome of the 1995 partnership between the Recreation Department, the Mill Valley School District, and community members, the Mill Valley Enrichment Program continues to provide well-rounded recreational and educational programs for elementary and middle school students.

Courses are open to all public, private and home school students. Specialty enrichment classes are offered on five school campus sites for students K-5th grade. We also offer daily after school care at the Mill Valley Community Center for K-5th students.

The goals of the After School Enrichment Program are to develop, implement and maintain well-rounded arts, educational and recreational offerings that accommodate the needs and desires of the students, parents and families of the Mill Valley School District. This includes working with the schools to acquire appropriate space, meeting with the individual school PTA groups, hiring instructors and supervising the programs on a self-sustaining basis. This program is intended to provide extended care while students are in a myriad of engaging activities.
