Our Kids Klub programs offer an enriching learning experience in a safe, supportive environment. Our “Full Steam Ahead” program focuses on STEM skills (science, technology, engineering, and math) with an emphasis on literacy and the arts. We’ll help your kids master the skills and knowledge they’ll need to succeed in the workforce and society of the future, including computer literacy and practical life skills like entrepreneurship and work readiness. We also incorporate the Junior Achievement of Iowa program curriculum and are a United Way agency.
Our “Full Steam Ahead” lessons enable students to develop creative real-world solutions to real-world problems. Project-based learning with interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches, especially when paired with arts and humanities education, engages a wide variety of learning styles, interests, and learning capacities. Our holistic program also encourages physical activity and social responsibility, engaging kids in community and volunteer work as well as sports and recreation.
Our programs have a ratio of approximately 1:10 (1 staff member for every 10 kids). All of our staff members are trained and certified in CPR and First Aid and meet or exceed all state licensing requirements. All of our staff have undergone background checks and are mandatory reporters for suspected violence or abuse. Our core staff members are experienced educators or are working towards education degrees. During the summer, our staff is enhanced by college students, many completing internships and practicum trainings, as well as experienced members of our community. We pride ourselves on our staff’s continuing education in practical and emotional teaching skills and methods so we always have the latest and greatest resources at our disposal to help your kids thrive.
Our all-inclusive programs accommodate your child’s needs and abilities and promote a culture of respect and diversity.
