School Age Childcare 

The after school program consists of academic support offering homework help, enrichment programs, recreation, youth development and arts and crafts.  Our after school programs are staffed with Kentwood Public Schools employees.  The childcare is a nonprofit program operated through the Early Childhood Office for Kentwood Public Schools.  The tuition paid by parents pays the instructors, buys teaching supplies and materials, and nutritious snacks.  We are licensed by the State of Michigan.

Program Hours:
Before school, hours will begin at 6:30 a.m. and continue until the start of the school day.  After school childcare  hours begin when school ends each day and will continue until 6:00 p.m..  The program will start with the scheduled first day of school and end with the scheduled last day of school.  Please contact the Early Childhood office at 493-5693 for information on the before and after school programs.
