Elk Rapids Summer Kids’ Club Program is designed to provide a nurturing and enriching experience for school-age students, entering TK/K (age 4 yrs./9 mos.) through Fifth Grade. The program is sponsored by the Elk Rapids School District and is licensed by the State of Michigan’s Child Day Care Licensing Agency. All children in Kids’ Club must be registered.
Our philosophy is to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment. This program will provide an atmosphere that will be conducive to meeting the physical, social/emotional and cognitive needs of the children it serves. The program will exist in an open, relaxed setting that includes an underlying structure with flexibility in order to meet the individual needs of each child.
The Summer Kids’ Club Program will be formatted around structured daily activities to include story time, physical fitness and movement, learning and play centers, arts and crafts, lunch, snack, outside time and a required quiet/rest time each day. No child is required to sleep, but each child is asked to rest quietly. The rest time may include soft music playing, quiet activities such as reading, coloring or puzzles. Washable mats will be provided for your child to rest on during this time.
The program will also include participation in the Elk Rapids Library Summer Reading Program, regularly scheduled field trips and a summer’s end celebration. Weekly newsletters will be sent home with your child, outlining activities for the following week and a signed permission slip for all field trips will be required. Some field trips do have an additional fee that is not included in the daily tuition rate.
In essence, we are going to have lots of fun with your child!!
