Pre-registration is made easy with the following three options:

In Office: Visit the Ojai Recreation Department office at 510 Park Rd. in Ojai to register in person with the help of one of our office staff. The office accepts cash, checks, and credit/debit cards and is open Monday through Friday from 8:00am-5:30pm.
Once a registration form is on file, payment can also be made by dropping off a check with the After School Program staff on site. On the check, please make sure to document the child’s name and the dates you are paying for.
NEW Post-payment option: If you are unsure of the days your child will be attending, we do have an option to leave a credit or debit card on file and we will automatically charge the card each Monday for any days attended the previous week. If you are interested in this option, please bring your registration form to the office and inform the staff that you would like to be in the auto charge folder.

Prior to each child entering the program, an emergency waiver/registration form must be completed by a parent/guardian. The purpose of the emergency waiver is to inform parents/guardians that there is a risk associated with participating in the program, and to provide the City of Ojai with the necessary contact information.
Parents are required to follow the sign-out policy. This means that every child attending must have a parent/guardian sign him/her out upon departure. Parents may authorize other individuals to pick up and sign out their child by writing them in on the bottom their child’s registration form or by submitting a letter to staff.
In the event of an illness or unforeseen circumstances causing the child to be absent from the program, the parent should contact the Ojai Recreation Department as soon as possible at 805-646-5581 ext. 390. If the office is notified by 10:00am, the fee for that day can be credited towards a subsequent day.
