Program Description/Parent Information

Due to the COVID pandemic, Kid College 2021 will look a little different this year. We hope to return to our normal Kid College next year.

 

Kid College 2021 is a half day program for children who will be in Kindergarten – 5th Grade in the Fall 2021.  There are four courses in the program. Children will be divided into 4 small groups based on the grade they will be in this fall (2021). The children will remain in the same classroom and the teachers will rotate to the different classrooms.  Children will not select classes – all children will take all 4 classes.

 

Children will attend either the morning or the afternoon classes for one week.  The morning and the afternoon classes are the exact same for both weeks.  Children may attend one week, one session to allow other children an opportunity to attend. 

 

Snack Break. You may send a snack if your child would like a snack during the break.  The snack should be something the child can easily open themselves and not messy.

 

Water Bottle. The water fountains are closed.  Please send a water bottle with your child each day.  Put your child’s name on the bottle.

 

Backpack. Your child will need a backpack each day.  Put your child’s name on the backpack.

 

Supply Fee.  The supply fee should be put in a separate envelope for each class.  On the outside of the envelope, put your child's name and the class title.  Checks should be made payable to the teacher.  Just drop the envelopes in the Supply Fee Box on the table in the Lobby.

 

Medicine and Medical Treatment Procedure.  It is our procedure that our staff do not administer over-the-counter or prescription medicine while children are attending our program.  If medical treatment is needed for a child, the parent/guardian will be notified.

 

Arrival and Departure Instructions.  No curbside drop off and pick up  To be announced.

 

Registration Fee: $120, includes t-shirt. Some classes have a small, additional supply fee.

 

Enrollment is limited!

 

 

On Wednesday, prior to Kid College, additional information will be e-mailed to you.

Moving and Grooving

Laura Taylor

 

Moving and grooving is an opportunity to not only encourage children to get active and moving, but to also allow them to discover and learn the benefits of moving while also having fun. We will work on balance, strength, coordination, flexibility and agility which will not only get them moving and grooving, but it will also allow children to work on listening skills and build their confidence in doing new activities.

Animal Adventures

Did you know that some sharks glow in the dark or that a polar bear's fur isn't actually white? In this class you will become an expert on animals from around the world as we explore a new habitat each day. You can even look forward to special visits from interesting creatures throughout the week. Get ready for a wild week full of adventures with animals big and small!
