Before-School Program – for kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade

Kids Co.’s before-school program offers kids a safe place to start their day. For parents/guardians, our before school program gives them peace of mind knowing they are leaving their kids in the hands of our caring staff. During the before-school program hours, kids are offered breakfast and given time to choose from lots of activities like arts and crafts, quiet reading, games, hanging out with friends, or joining in a group activity
led by one of our teachers.

After-School Program – for kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade

Kids Co.’s after-school programs are designed to help kids wind down from a busy school day incorporating self-guided and teacher-led activities. Our after school program is a bridge for continually learning between the school day and after school enrichment that incorporates youth voice by engaging the kids in curriculum planning. Teacher-led activities may include outdoor games such as Sharks & Minnows (aka tag), and indoor activities such as board games, cooking projects, and science activities. Our program focuses on inclusion in a non-competitive atmosphere with no requirements other than to try your best and have fun in the process! Self-guided activities include comfortable spaces for reading, self-selection of activities and projects, and time to talk and share with friends.

Homework time is optional and offered in our after-school programs Monday through Thursday. Our staff helps kids work on assignments in a small group setting which gives them a jump start on their homework.
