KIDVentures SCHOOL age care


KidVentures is a child-focused, enrichment and care program that incorporates a fun atmosphere in a safe setting where children can explore new interests and make new friends. Students participate in a variety of hands-on activities that build social, emotional, physical and academic skills. We collaborate with each elementary school to share facilities including the gyms, cafeteria, computer lab and outside play areas. Enrollment must include a consistent schedule with a minimum of two days per week. KidVentures also offers care on most non-school days and during the one hour late start on Wednesdays.

KidVentures is offered Monday through Friday at Bridgewater, Greenvale Park, and Spring Creek Elementary schools, from 6:30 am-school start and school release-6:00 pm.
