What We Do
Every day at Kids Co. at TOPS, located at TOPS K-8 School, is an adventure! Our amazing staff arrives each morning excited to greet each child and to help make their day special. Each morning we enjoy quiet activities and a morning snack together. When it’s time for school to begin we get the kids packed up and bring them up to the lunchroom to join their teachers. Later in the afternoon, we welcome our kids into our room and begin our time together with a delicious snack or a little homework and quiet reading. We later come together for group time and transition to our enrichment and active choice activities. During our activity time, each child is able to choose which activity they would like to participate in depending on their interest and energy level. We end each afternoon with some quiet play time and get the room ready for the next day!
Summer Day Camp-Summer of Discovery!
July - August 2019
Our Kids Co. Summer Day Camps keep kids active, having fun, and learning all summer long so come along with us!
Kids will play with friends, create and explore new things, and travel to different places each week.
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 “reading” tokens. Summer Run for Fun is our way of incorporating exercise, in a fun way, into our daily routine. Kids will earn “running shoes” tokens and track how far they’ve run, jogged, walked, or even skipped. Nearly every week, the Kids Co. at TOPS kids will have a beach adventure at Madison Park right on Lake Washington!
