The hours between the final bell and when parents are able to pick up their children are a critical period of time. Engaging, challenging after-school programs can help solidify what students have learned during the day, and adult supervision ensures they’ll be safe until they go home each day. Campus KidCare is available on our campuses.
Campus KidCare is a before/after school enrichment program provided by a partnership between Polk County Public Schools and local child care providers. The program is designed to safely care for your child and to give him/her extra support between the school and home. KidCare is dedicated to providing a fun, developmentally sound program for elementary-aged children. The programs are housed at the elementary schools listed below.
The programs are open until 6 p.m.
Morning hours are dependent upon the needs presented by the participating families.
The program provides child care on teacher work days.
The daily schedule for KidCare includes:
- Homework time
- Outdoor time
- Activities such as chess club, drama, music
- Discovery learning
Costs for care will not exceed $60 for after-school care, or $65 for before- and after-school care. Subsidized child care vouchers are accepted. A sliding scale fee is available for students eligible for free or reduced lunch.
