We’re here to help you give your child a head start developing their literacy, communication, and creativity. The session includes activities that families and caregivers can do together at home. Come play, learn, and make new friends!

Programs for Elementary Kids: Elementary Adventure Program

Miss Kenida invites your children ages 5-12 to experience an after-school opportunity that focuses on learning while having fun! This program features an ever-changing mix of reading, play, and hands-on projects to help your child explore concepts in reading, math, science, art, and social studies.

After a long day of classes, we provide a snack and time for each child to work on schoolwork, or read with friends. Following their tasty snack and free time, we then engage them in a variety of activities from planting seeds, to measuring how quickly water evaporates, to writing and performing their own puppet shows!

Monday-Thursday: 3:30-6:00pm
