Kids Club During the School Year

 

The Kids Club program provides school-based before and after school childcare for Penn-Harris-Madison students in grades K-5 (Four-year-olds enrolled in the ELA preschool program at a P-H-M school are also eligible to attend). We offer a variety of activities for a fun time after school. The students get an opportunity to engage with their school buddies in a safe and known environment. They get a chance to participate in art and craft projects, LEGO and Stem Clubs, Homework time opportunities, organized group games, outdoor recess time, movie time and more. 

 

This program caters to our 11 elementary schools. Madison students are offered this program at Elm Road Elementary and are bussed to the school. 

 

Each school plans different activities and clubs throughout the year  where students can choose from a variety of recreational, social and enrichment activities. Each location is managed by the site coordinator and Assistant site coordinator and supervised by program coordinators and the before and after school director.

 

This is an optional, parent funded program. A parent or authorized adult must provide transportation to the program in the morning and a parent or authorized adult can pick the child up any time during afternoon or all-day care.

 

 

The program is offered before school, operating from 6:30 a.m. until the start of classes, and again after school, operating from the time of school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. Click here to for the latest info on P-H-M’s COVID-19 health safety protocols.
