Our School Age Programs, founded in 1984, piloted a before-school program at Burns Park Elementary for the Ann Arbor Public Schools. Since 1985 we have run school age programs at Lawton and Burns Park Elementary Schools. The school age programs provide a stimulating, enriching experience where children’s ideas and interests are nurtured and encouraged. Children can choose from a variety of activities including, art, science, dramatic play and interest based clubs. Clubs examples are, community service, theatre, art, food, spy clubs. Clubs offer children the opportunity to learn important skills and are a great way for them to learn about their roles in groups, achieve success outside of academics, and gain personal responsibility and accountability.
Freedom of choice is the heart of our program. Children are encouraged to interact with the environment and materials in ways that are meaningful to them; including suggesting and leading their own ideas and activities.In our multi-age setting, a friendly and highly trained team of staff work to create an engaging and supportive environment. Staff strive to be sensitive to each child’s developmental needs, while fostering a positive self-image.
At Kids Club, children learn independence, positive social skills, responsibility and empathy. This prepares them to be ready for life! Kids Club’s philosophy is all children should explore their environment in ways that are meaningful to them. The environment is warm and loving, allowing for the exercise of creativity and imagination. It provides many opportunities for children to more fully develop their own interests and abilities. Kids Club provides a fun and exciting structure for children and gives them many opportunities to develop social and emotional competence.

Scholarship award amounts will depend upon each applicant’s childcare schedule and fees. Scholarships are designed to pay a portion of the total childcare cost for each child. The parent(s) is expected to pay the remaining portion. A payment must be received prior to awarding the scholarship. Scholarships are paid out every three months to ensure all families have equal opportunity to apply. A reduction of childcare hours will reflect a change in the scholarship awarded. If a family is three (3) months in arrears, attendance will be discontinued until the past due payment is made.
