In many families, both parents work, making after school programs critical during the school year and particularly during school holidays. For children ages 5 to 12, Kids 'R' Kids Clayton offers what parents are looking for; a safe environment for additional learning/study time and supervised activities.
We have three 14 passenger school buses with seat belts to safely transport children to and from local elementary schools. Additionally, our extended business hours from 6:30 am - 6:30 pm coupled with our convenient location on US70 enables busy pare nts to continue to work a full day. This is even more important for parents whose jobs require a commute between Johnston and Wake Counties.
Many families must choose a program that fits their child's year-round schedule as it pertains to elementary school, summer activities and holidays. Kids 'R' Kids Clayton uses a Monthly Idea Calendar that offers daily activity suggestions.
Our Before and After school program offers the elementary-age child a welcomed break from the structured academic learning to a variety of Activity Zones to further enhance a child's creativity, problem-solving, and decision making skills. In our fun, productive and supervised environment each child also has the opportunity to develop special friendships.
By meeting with parents, our teachers can determine what each child requires after school. Perhaps an older child needs more help in order to complete homework assignments, or a younger child may need special tutoring in reading or math. This also is a good time to let the children learn more about computers, which are available in Suite 600, our 2500 square foot room dedicated to the Before & After School Program. But our teachers know that after a busy day at school, children need time to play. The Before & After School Program has the largest playground dedicated to them. There is room for a large play structure, a basketball court, and a soccer area. Be sure to visit our "Take a Tour" webpage to view some of these areas.
Children are divided by age groups and give each child the chance to direct that special energy only children have. A 6 year old child will have different interests than that of an 11 year old child.
The Kids 'R' Kids Clayton Elementary Age Program is designed to extend your child's academic learning from the traditional classroom setting into our center.
