Polk County School Board decided, in answer to numerous requests from
parents, that school-age child care extended days were a necessary
service, we got to work to design a program we could all be proud of
and one your kids would benefit from.
The program, named Campus KidCare, is designed to care for your child
safely, and to give him or her that "little extra,"
educationally, socially, culturally, emotionally and academically. In
short, all the things you would provide if you didn't need to work or
go to school yourself. And that's a tall order.
Here, in a nutshell, is what Campus
KidCare offers you and your child:
Safety - Staff, volunteers
and specialists work within a staff/child ratio of 1:17, and provide
your child with a safe, familiar environment.
- Your child
stays at school, enrolled in a safe, convenient, affordable program.
Each Campus KidCare site has its own telephone, so if you need us, you
can find us.
Affordability - We recognize
that child care is one of the biggest-and most important-expenses
parents face today. So Campus KidCare designers set out to offer a top
quality program that costs you less. We can do it because our overhead
is covered. The schools are built, the playgrounds are ready and much
of our planning time is included in our original jobs. And you, the
taxpayer get the benefit-quality child care,
Food - We know kids
and we know they get hungry. So Campus KidCare provides a nutritious
snack each afternoon.
Fun! - Campus KidCare
is out to provide your child with fun, kid-things to do. We even have a
staff to provide homework help so that when you and your child get home
there's time for family.
Appropriate Activities - Wherever your child is in the scheme of the program,
you can be assured that our child care experts will provide the kind of
specialized activities that will help him or her get ahead. Whether
that means language skills practice, motor building activities or
social exercises, we'll be there to help. That's what we're trained
Program is open to a limited number of children.
Come join the fun!
