After School

Enrollment for 2022-2023 After School Program is open!

Mustard Seed Learning Center has been serving Palo Alto families since the 1990’s. We are a long-established after school care program dedicated to learning Mandarin in Palo Alto. The owners raised their own children in this community, and they strive to better their neighborhood so that Palo Alto can continue to be the best place to raise young families today.

This coming school year, MSLC will have two options for our families: online and in-person. If you have any further questions regarding our after school program, please do not hesitate to email us.
