Elementary K-5

KidVentures is an enrichment and care program available on school days (before and after) and most non-school days from 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Students enrolled will have a chance to participate in a variety of activities that build social, emotional, physical, and academic skills. The curriculum is designed around the unique interests and needs of the various age groups in which our program serves. We encourage the children to play an active role in the generation of themes, projects and special events. They assist in planning, creating and implementing many different learning experiences.

We use a program model that is both age and developmentally appropriate and encompasses our enrichment philosophy in our integrated curriculum model. Students get to work with a variety of hands-on materials during clubs, camps and special events. We collaborate with each of the elementary school programs on a daily basis to utilize and share space including the gyms, cafeteria, computer lab and outside areas. The students also participate in a number of recognition programs including DEAR (drop everything and read), Sport Stacking, and service projects around the community throughout the year. Our goal is to build on the knowledge and skill development that is occurring during the school day by incorporating the standards into the enrichment activities we plan for our out-of-school time programs.

We offer a variety of enrollment options for your child, so participation is flexible depending on your schedule or your child’s needs. If you have any questions regarding the KidVentures programs, please contact Breezy Barrett, Program Supervisor. She can be reached at the Community Services Office Monday-Friday at 507-664-3750. She can also be contacted through email: Families can also contact their site leader with specific questions regarding individual programs.
