Before School

Opening at 6:00 AM, we provide breakfast, activities and transportation to school. During the Before School Program children have access to STEMsmart centers with hands on activities. They also have access to a variety of books, last minute homework help and time for physical activities. Kids Can works directly with each school to ensure children are dropped off at the designated times.

We provide before school transportation to Ashland Park Robbins, Gateway, Gilder, Karen Western Elementary Schools, and St. Thomas More Catholic School.

After School

Our after school program operates from the time we pick kids up at school until 6:00 PM. During afterschool program students participate in Kids Can's STEMsmart Academy which offers a variety of hands on activities largely based off their interests. From the playground, gym, library and computer room children discover new interests and meet new friends.

We provide after school transportation from Ashland Park Robbins, Gateway, and Karen Western Elementary Schools, Gateway Early Learning Center and St. Thomas More Catholic School.
