Youth Programs

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the El Cerrito Recreation Department has adapted our Youth Services model to help meet the care needs of our community. Following guidance from the state and county health offices, our new program models center on the best practices for providing childcare to elementary age youth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the look and feel of our new programs may be different than what families are used to, we remain dedicated to providing services that focus on the health and safety of youth and staff, as well as allows our community to receive essential childcare services while still providing plenty of F.U.N.: Friends, Unity, and New Experiences!
