Gloucester City School District
Kids Choice Before and After School Program
Kids Choice before and after school program was established in 2017 in partnership with the Gloucester City School District to provide a safe, fun, and nurturing environment for school age children. We provide before school activities from 7:00am to the beginning of school and after school care from the time school is dismissed until 6:00pm. Both programs operate from Monday through Friday and are conveniently located in every elementary and middle school.
Before School Care
Our before school morning program provides a place they can take their child that is safe and fun. It helps start their day at school on a positive note. Readying their minds and emotions to successfully begin their day. Breakfast will not be served in the Before School Program, however you may send your child with a nutritious snack/meal.
After School Care
Our after-school program provides the opportunity for each child to do their homework assignments and seek assistance when needed. We offer a variety of age-appropriate supervised activities such as games, athletics, arts & crafts that encourage free play and creativity. We also provide a healthy and nutritious snack for the children enrolled in the after-school program.
