    • Full and part-time schedules must be the same day of the week, each week.
    • Full and part-time schedules cannot be combined.

Curriculum


We provide a weekly curriculum with a variety of theme-based activities. Children choose from the activities based on thier interest.

Typical Activities: arts/crafts, sports, free choice, board games, gym/outdoor games, computers, dramatic play, sensory play, quiet time, imaginitive play, manipulatives, reading, health/safety, creative construction, scientific exploration, learning life skills, service learning projects.
Field Trips & Presentations: groups will participate, on average, in one field trip and host an on-site presenter each week. Events are not planned for specific days of the week. We attempt to balance the number of events so that each day has close to the same number of events over the course of the summer (because of the number of groups we plan for and vendor availability, this is not a guarantee).

Summer 2017 events are not yet planned. Click on this link see a sample of events that we have done in the past: Summer events -sample

Meals


Breakfast and Snack service will be offered to all Kids Club participants during the summer at no additional fee. Each Kids Club/Upgrade group will post a daily schedule announcing the time of service for each of these meals and a menu listing items that will be served daily. Expect these items to be posted at the start of the summer program.
