Registration forms for the 2017/2018 school year

** Families who register for any or all of our Pro -D Day care camps are guaranteed a spot and there are no refunds, the only exception is with a doctor's note stating that your child is unable to attend due to medical reasons.This option allows us to staff more effectively and removes the need to register for each Pro-D camp separately. 

WE ARE CURRENTLY FULL IN OUR 2017/18 OSC PM CARE FOR GRADES K, 1, & 2; we have limited space in our AM care for all grades and limited space for children in grades 3, 4, & 5. 

If you are a new family interested in OSC care and registered at Oaklands Elementary, please contact Cindy Allen at osc@oaklandsca.com to be placed on on the wait list. She will contact you with updates about space availability for the 2017/2018 school year.

The OSC program clears their waitlist on the last day of the current school year. Families who are on the waitlist have the opportunity to re-register into the new school year when registration opens to the public. 

WE DO NOT TAKE WAIT LISTS FOR FUTURE SCHOOL YEARS. If you are interested in Out-of-School care in the 2018/19 school year and beyond please contact us in December the year prior to your child starting at Oaklands Elementary and we will place you on an interest list and contact you with updates about space availability. We open to our current in-house families first to re-register into the OSC program, including their siblings who will start kindergarten in the new school year and to our Little Acorns Daycare families with children starting kindergarten. We open registration to current families in March and to new families in April.
