Kids Club at Cleveland Elementary

Our school-based afterschool program, Kids Club, is an extension of the formal school day; it serves to complement and enhance learning in the classroom through educational, physical, artistic, and social experiences in a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere. With a small student to teacher ratio (14:1) Kids Club provides children an opportunity to expand their learning, develop meaningful relationships with their teachers, and build community with their peers. The program also offers healthy snacks, homework help, outside play, and plenty of downtime to unwind and have fun.

Enrichment Program

Kids Club Enrichment Program is led by our internal teachers and is divided into three 10-12 week sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring). With assistance from the Afterschool Director, the internal teaching staff develops curriculum based on their interests and passions. Enrichment ranges from art, science, sports, gardening, and much more. We will also be offering enrichment by various external vendors.
