St. Alban’s

Classroom Matters offers an elementary-grades afterschool program for Berkeley and Albany Unified Schools, plus Harding Elementary in El Cerrito.

Our afterschool program is held in St. Alban’s church at the corner of Washington and Curtis in Albany. It’s a large, beautiful, open hall space with a kitchen and a small stage. The kids also spend quite a bit of time at Memorial Park, which is where you can find them on Wednesdays – after they’ve done their homework and reading, of course!

The program is available Monday through Friday from 12:45-6:30pm.

Our program includes:

  • Homework supervision and daily reading time – let us handle the stallling and excuses, you focus on connecting with your kids!
  • Enrichment activities such as strategy games, building with Legos, dance parties, and more
  • Games, arts and crafts, and outdoor play, lots of outdoor play
  • Cooking, yoga, and music

The program does not have a religious component. However, we occasionally partner with the rector of St. Alban’s, Reverend Julie Wakelee-Lynch, to participate in community-involvement activities that focus on increasing the kids’ awareness of the world around them and how they can positively contribute.
