Mandela After School Program

Kids Can is excited to be the out-of-school provider at Nelson Mandela Elementary School. We will be providing after-school programming until 6:15 PM during regular academic sessions and full-day programs during off-session days. Scholars will enjoy a wide variety of activities each day including a warm meal, homework help, physical activities, and access to Kids Can STEMsmart programming via exceptional community providers and activities developed by our highly skilled staff. Kids Can takes pride in supporting academics while increasing youth access to positive adult relationships.

This is a tremendous partnership with the Mandela teachers and leadership.  We will work closely to provide activities to engage and inspire children every day!
