To be the after school program that provides a safe environment where kids can relax, feel comfortable, have a quiet place to complete school work, enjoy being a kid while sharpening their skills in after school interests. All within a protected, supportive, and encouraging environment.
The years between 5 and 12 represent a time of great growth and opportunity for children, as well as of vulnerability and risk. After the school bell rings and before parents are home from their workday, children need programs that provide enrichment opportunities and a safe place to play that minimize their exposure to risk. Kids Club gives children a fun safe place to grow and the freedom to express themselves in a healthy environment.

What kind of activities do you do?
We have a wide variety of activities that include but are not limited to Arts, Sports, Outdoor play, Board games, Cooking projects, Science experiments and Homework.
Do children have to or are they required to do an activity?
Each child has the option to pick and choose what activity he or she would like to do. If a child wishes, he or she is more than welcome to start up a game with friends or just sit and enjoy a book. We believe that children are busy most of the day and like everyone, need some time to relax and enjoy the park.
Do you walk children to and from after school activities like Chess Class or Lego Classes ?
How do the children get to the Community Center from Neil Cummins School?
Kindergartners are picked up from their classrooms and walked to Kids Club. First through fourth graders are picked up from the lunch table area directly after school and then walked to Kids Club.
Can you bring toys or MP3 players etc., to Kids Club?
Yes. However, please note that Kids Club is not responsible for loss or damage to property.
Is there a snack time?
Snack is provided between 3:30-4:00pm everyday. If your child is on a special diet, please pack an extra snack and juice with his or her lunch. If your child has an extra snack, he or she is more than welcome to eat it anytime throughout the day.
You can put your mind at ease knowing your child is being cared for by experienced well qualified caregivers. We pride ourselves in instilling core values while we care for your child. All staff are CPR and first aid certified.
