What Type of Activities Are Offered?
The primary goal of Kids Club is to provide a safe, healthy, well-supervised, home-like environment for all children. Children are offered choices wherever possible to make the program relevant and fun for everyone.
The Kids Club program provides opportunities for the child to be involved in self-directed activities, large motor activities in the gymnasium and outside, arts and crafts projects, field trips, independent reading, homework time and computers. Many of the Kids Club activities are planned by the children with guidance from the program staff. In this way, the program is less like school and more like home.
