KIDS CO. AT CASCADIA
Welcome to Kids Co. at Cascadia, located at Cascadia Elementary! At our center, each day is a new adventure. Both mornings and afternoons, we always offer some sort of enrichment activity. These range from art projects, science experiments to active games inside and outside the classroom. We also offer opportunities for youth to plan activities to share with the group. We really believe it is all about the Kids!
Due to our size, we also split the age groups up. First through third graders are in our main classroom and our fourth and fifth graders use another classroom across the cafeteria. This allows staff to really cater to the different ages in our program and create activities with youth to engage in.
In addition, Monday-Thursday we offer designated homework time, outside time and free play during structured times. (please see daily schedule) On Fridays, we have Free Day Fridays, where youth get to choose their activity, get outside earlier and take a break from homework for a day, if they want. Every day we also serve a healthy breakfast and light snack in the mornings and afternoons.
Lastly, the staff here at Cascadia are truly wonderful and well-seasoned. Every day you can expect to be greeted warmly by any of the staff working. We have had some staff here since 2012, staff who have worked at other Kids Co.’s and newer staff who have quickly become invested in the Kids Co. world.
Summer Day Camp (scroll down for weekly themes)
Kids Co.'s Summer Camps are fun, flexible and educational. Your one stop shop for summer fun.
New themes, activities, and field trips to lots of exciting destinations each week.
- Designed with working parents in mind, our week-long day camps run from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Camp activities run from 9 am to 4 pm.
- Give yourself a break! Instead of shuttling your kids all over town to a new camp every week, choose one location all summer long.
- Our camps are a great option for gap weeks in your kid’s summer line-up!
- Licensed programs with professional staff who are trained in child/youth development, 1st Aid/CPR, and background checked.
- We are excited to launch our new programs, Kids Co.’s Big Read and Summer Run for Fun.
Each day kids will dive into good books and track their progress, and collect Big Read “reading” tokens. Our dedication to daily reading helps mitigate "summer reading loss," a decline in children's reading development that can occur during summer vacation times when children are away from the classroom and not participating in formal literacy programs. Read more about it here.
Kids Co. is here to keep your kids active! Summer Run For Fun is a fun way to promote healthful living into our daily routine. Kids will earn “running shoes” tokens and track how far they’ve run, jogged, walked, or even skipped. Physical activity is vital for a child's development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life. ... promoting healthy growth and development. helping to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. building strong bones and muscles. Read more about it here.
Kids Co. creates the best summer ever for your kids. We blend staff ideas, best practice, family feedback, and kid’s suggestions to create a summer your kids will not forget.
