Welcome to Kidstop!

Kidstop is a choice-based, high quality and enriching school-age care experience for children in Kindergarten - 5th grade. (We also offer Four Star Express for 4 year olds and Summer for grades 6-8. See links above.)

Whether your child craves challenge and adventure, connection and friendships, or just wants to chill, Kidstop offers engaging opportunities as unique as your child. Every aspect of what we do has your child in mind. Choice-based programming allows your child to make choices about how they want to spend their time while in our program.

We offer a quality and enriching school age care experience: 

  • We build our program around student choice, which promotes their emerging independence and leadership.
  • We build the core of the district mission into our programs by engaging students in active learning.
  • We provide homework help to students in the program.
  • We work to build each child’s confidence, courage, and competence by creating a “can do” environment.
  • We understand children and recognize the special gifts each brings to our programs. We build off of this and support each child to realize his or her unique importance.
  • We do and bring in fun! Gadgets, Clubs, Fit-4-Fun! curriculum, Science, Service Projects, Literacy, Smoothie Makers, Dehydrators, and Innovative Games gives you a glimpse of what we do.
  • We create an environment that supports the culture and background of each child.

We are confident that if you use our program your child will make new friends, experience enriching activities, and have a fun time!
