Program Objectives
The objectives of Kids After School Time are as follows:
• To provide professional, quality after school care for children in grades K through 5.
• To provide enjoyable, enriching activities which reflect and fulfill the needs of the children.
• To provide a safe and supportive environment where children can grow and flourish.

Program Description
KAST cultivates a child-centered atmosphere. Children at KAST are encouraged to use their creativity, learn to make decisions, try new activities with children beyond their regular play circles, and learn to participate as a non-competitive team member. Activities at KAST include outdoor sports and games, playground and gym activities, arts and crafts, cooking, special monthly themes and activities, homework help and (for Adventurers) field trips. The program provides a nutritious snack that children may help prepare and serve. Qualified and experienced directors and supervisors along with high school and college aged support staff with the children daily. The student to staff ratio is approximately 8:1 for grades K-2 and 12:1 for grades 3-5. Students choose their activities for the afternoon under KAST supervision. The Out of School Time Program Director and Assistant Director along with the Site supervisors work with the parents to take care of children’s needs.

Program Hours
KAST operates each day of the school year when school is in session. Hours of the program are from the close of school until 5:30 p.m.
