The Santa Barbara Independent After-School Special

After Class Ends, the Real Fun Begins


Rejoice, parents — summer is coming to an end. Finally, your little unemployed dependents will be back to feeling the pain of a regular workday. Serves them right for having so much fun all summer. But if you still need those few extra hours covered (wouldn’t it be nice to leave work at 3:15 every day?), The Santa Barbara Independent has rounded up all your options for after-school enrichment to cover every child’s interests. We’ve got everything from kung fu to baton twirling, a host of educational and tutoring opportunities, and more organized sports than your little baller can possibly play at once — though they can try! So check them in, and feel good about putting in that extra hour at the office; they’ll be in good hands.
