IGH/SSP Kidsí Choice School-Age Care Program is a
place where each child is a cherished and unique member of the team.
Kidsí Choice operates year round in each of the elementary school
buildings. The program operates before and after school, full days on
non-school days and during the summer for children in grades K-5 in
Inver Grove Heights
and K-6 in
South St. Paul
Programming is based on age-appropriate choices for
the children. We feel that children are growing in their capabilities and
it is important that we provide them with a rich choice of activities.
Each day the children are offered a variety of developmentally appropriate
planned activities that encourage play and recreation with an emphasis on
developing positive social and life-long skills. Each child in the program
will be nurtured, kept safe and encouraged to pursue their own interests
and to develop friendships, independence and confidence while their
families are at work.
Curriculum areas include: arts and crafts, reading,
computers, music, drama, physical education, outdoor recreation, science,
group and cooking. If you were to enter a Kidsí Choice room, you would
find the children and staff happily engaged in many different activities
going on simultaneously.
