The Boys & Girls Club of Manteca-Lathrop is offering a solution.

It is conducting a Sunrise Program Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.  The hours dovetail into the normal summer hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Children must be a club member. That costs $24 a year. membership is open to youth from age 6 to 18

The program is $15 a day or $50 a week per child for the Sunrise Program.

The cost covers breakfast, lunch, daily snack arts & crafts, physical education, cultural enrichment, and more under trained adult and professional staff supervision.

The program was added at the request of a number of working parents that were looking for supervision for their children during the summer before the club opens for its normal hours.
