The Program provides care for children in Kindergarten through 6th grades. The program is designed to accommodate any children who are physically handicapped, providing they normally ride school buses.
The program operates daily 2:45 – 6:00 pm (KES, BES & HES). On scheduled 1/2 days of school, the afternoon program begins at 12:45 PM and ends at 6:00 pm. Children may be registered to attend the afternoon sessions on a part-time or full-time basis. A special vacation child care program is offered on most school holidays and vacations (Veteran’s Day, President’s Day Break and April Vacations). The program does not meet on days when school is delayed, canceled or dismissed early due to weather or other circumstances.
The program curriculum is realistic and diversified. The types of activities offered include: arts and crafts, organized sports and games, free play (indoor and outdoor), homework assistance, computer education, dance, special rainy day activities, and periodic field trips. The curriculum strives to meet the varying needs of the different children and their respective ages.
Registration is restricted to those children attending District #17 Elementary Schools. Those who choose to register on a part-time basis must notify the HK Recreation Department a month in advance and specify what day of the week the child will be attending.
