Kids Connection offers an After School Program for children who need supervised care before school begins or between the end of the school day and 6:00pm. After school at KC is not just supervised free play. The afternoons are constructive and creative. Children engage in multimedia art projects, cook, play team games, build on their sports skills, go on treasure hunts, watch movies, and visit nearby parks. Students also have a period of time for studying and doing homework. Students are supervised by counselors. All counselors, as with any Kids Connection employee, are background checked and CPR certified. The ratio of students to counselors does not exceed 10:1.
When the school day ends (1:30pm for kindergarteners, 2:45pm for students in grades 1 through 5), students enrolled in the After School Program meet for roll call. After roll call, students divide into groups by grade and begin their schedule of activities. Parents may pick up their child in the school building at any time in the afternoon. Please make sure that you sign your child out and that your child’s counselor acknowledges that you are removing your child from campus so that we can check your child out from our system. Children are to be picked up by or before 6:00pm. If your child is not picked up by 6:00pm, you will be charged $1.00 for every minute past 6:00pm that you are late picking up your child.
The After School Program is provided for an additional fee over tuition. Fees for these programs are paid on a monthly basis and are incorporated along with the tuition payment. Students can participate in these programs as best fits their needs.
Before School Care begins at 7:00am. Students who participate in the After School Program are included in the Before School Care Program at no additional cost.
