Based on the current Health Order, the Extended Student Services (ESS) elementary school program is operating at a limited capacity. Current hours of operation for ESS are 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. The PAL middle school program is suspended until further notice. LARPD works closely with the school district and has the health and safety of our participants and community members as a top priority. We appreciate your patience during this time.
The Youth Services Division of Livermore Area Recreation and Park District has the unique opportunity to provide continuity of enriching developmentally appropriate experiences for children beginning in our preschool programs, continuing with our School Age Child Development programs - ESS and lastly onto to our Middle School PAL programs.
Child Development programs, in the Youth Services Division, focus on the whole child and work diligently to support them and their families as they move through their early years through middle school. Programs provide intentionally planned activities through the Project Approach which encourage children to become leaders and learn independence through interactive activities.
The Project Approach method of teacher and child curriculum planning is apparent in our programs and has been an effective part of programming. We are proud to have the opportunity to watch our preschoolers become successful middle school students who leave our program as eighth graders with a solid set of life skills they can count on.
