Kids Club Registration (Before School Care, After School Care & Early Release Days)
Welcome to Kids Club!
Kids Club is a friendly, safe environment where children are guided in stimulating opportunities that spark creativity, curiosity and success! Structured daily periods of free time, gross motor activities, arts and crafts and enrichment opportunities are designed to increase their self esteem, discover imagination, develop tolerance and patience, widen responsibility and enjoy social time with both peers and staff. Our goal is to provide a place where children- Grades K-6 can become dependent, self reliant and resourceful members of the community. We provide them with the guidance necessary to develop capable reasoning and thinking in order to problem-solve and make good choices. We facilitate them to be ready for the challenges they may face as they confront life's issues. Activities will include: Activities in the gym and sporting fields surrounding the complex, arts and crafts, health and nutrition, homework help time, quiet time, free play and more.
