To meet the needs of our community, Kinder Kare offers programs for school age children in kindergarten and before/after school.
Before & After School Program
Kinder Kare's before and after school program offers a safe, supervised learning environment for elementary school children. Many activities are provided to keep the learning momentum going when school lets out, allowing their energy to move in a postive direction. We allow children the opportunity to chose their activities, that may include games, outside time, reading, computer activities, arts/crafts, or time to catch up on homework. If a child needs to rest and relax, they can do that too!
We provide a program that accommodates each community's kindergarten schedule. Kindergarten children can attend Kinder Kare on the off, half, or full days they are not in school. The program reinforces the skills they are learning in kindergarten. We encourage the children to have fun while using their immagination and creativity. Individual and small group activities are provided for kindergartners to experience hands-on creating, exploring and problem solving.
Our Venture progarm (children ages 5 - 12 years) provides a summer filled with activities that promote group and individual participation, planned by a trained Venture teacher. The program helps children learn about themselves and expands their knowledge of the local community. Visitors from within our communities; group projects such as planting a garden, having a talent show, creating a newspaper; a peer reading program; cooking activities; arts and crafts; and a community service project are being planned. Weekly field trips connect the children with the community, as well as provide fun learning experiences.
The Venture teacher will be planning a monthly calendar. You will receive a copy of the calendar which lists themes for each week and the scheduled activities and events. Group pojects, games, dramatic play, cooking activities, arts and crafts will correspond with the weekly studies.
