SACC provides fun, safe and educational care for children in kindergarten – sixth grade before school, after school and during school vacations in most Fairfax County elementary schools.

The SACC program serves children five days a week, Mondays - Fridays. SACC does not provide drop-in, short-term, or partial-week service.

  • Before School - 7 a.m. until school begins.
  • After School - End of school day until 6:15 p.m. SACC service begins when the children are dismissed from school.
  • Winter/Spring/Summer Programs - SACC operates winter, spring and summer programs at a number of consolidated sites. Enrollment is on a first come, first-served basis, and additional fees are assessed for each program. The centers are open from 7 a.m. through 6:15 p.m.

Spotlight  on SACC Centers


Children at Clermont SACC enjoy designing and creating.  Several children made their own outfits including hats, scarfs, skirts and ponchos for a center festival while other children used their talents to build and decorate bird houses.

Children at Annandale Terrace SACC worked together to write Finding Nema, a play about what happened to the characters of Finding Nemo two generations later.   Are humans still polluting our ocean?  This original play digs deeper into the wonders of nature with comedy, touching moments, and dancing!   The children learned how to create a character for a play, act on stage, and learned steps to hip hop choreography.  Merging nature with the performing arts turned out to be a fun and enriching experience for both the children and their families.

Children at Forestville SACC made 105 tissue paper flowers in honor of a young girl diagnosed with cancer. As part of their community service outreach, the flowers were donated to a local hospital to bring cheer to children and their families.

At Union Mill SACC children have the opportunity to connect with real animals and learn how to care for them. Union Mill SACC adopted 2 rabbits (one from the Fairfax County Animal Shelter and one from a family in the community), and a hamster all of which joined the animals already in their Nature Center including a hamster,  a frog, 4 fish and a snail. The children really enjoy including the rabbits when they play board games. The children and families have also enjoyed the weekend program which gives families the opportunity to take the animals home for the weekend.
