Wakonda After School Program

Kids Can is excited to partner with Wakonda Elementary to offer, for the first time, out of school programming for the children and families of the Wakonda community! The Wakonda program will serve kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Students will enjoy a wide variety of activities each day including a warm meal, homework help, physical activities in the gym and on the playground, 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.

The program runs from school dismissal time until 6:00 PM each day school is in session.
