Get Ready for Back to After-School with Beyond the Bell

apple_schoolCan you believe that it’s already back to school?  If you are like me, you are counting down the days until school starts…. and then the first night of having to remind your kid of that fun activity called homework, you begin counting down the days towards summer again.

Summer is always hard for us financially as it sometimes feels that summer camps cost more than college. But then the kids can play video games for hours while I finish up work.  Back to school means homework and regular bedtimes, and washing more than the pool towels. Back to school means schedules and pick-ups at 3:00 and making sure that the kids don’t play video games for hours while I finish up work.

Are you looking for after-school activities for your children?  San José Beyond the Bell is a free tool that helps you support your children by linking them to out-of-school time programs and resources across Silicon Valley.  Whether its simply needing after school care or wanting additional academic enrichment, Beyond the Bell helps to aggregate your options into one place.  And I’m all about making things as easy for us parents.

Age groups run from pre-school through high school. This site lets you search by location, zipcode, and keyword, and lets you limit your search to “programs with financial aid available or free of charge.”

This is not a sponsored post.  It’s just one working mama passing on a tip to fellow parents.
