School-Age Child Care

Kids Club is a program for students in kindergarten through 5th grade. It is provided for patrons of the Kearney R-1 School District whose jobs require them to be away from home during the before and after school hours.

The program is open on days that school is in session, and additionally on parent-teacher conference days and teacher professional development days (we consolidate to 2 sites on these full days, and there is an additional charge).  Also, we are open during the district's summer school program (typically, the month of June) and for our July - early August program, "Summer Expeditions";  the summer programs require separate enrollment forms which will be available in spring each year.

Kids Club provides a variety of fun and educational activities for our children, including arts and crafts, dramatic play, music, gym time and computer games, to name just a few. A qualified staff is present at each Kids Club site. The cost of the program varies based on services needed and is based on 174 student/school days (see "Tuition Schedule").  The summer programs' tuition will be explained prior to the enrollment each summer.

We begin fall enrollments each May 1st, and e-mail links will be sent to current families at that time. The first 2 weeks of May are for those currently in the program to reclaim their spots, and new students will be enrolled during the latter half of the month (and the e-mail link placed on the KSD web page).

**Enrollment is limited, so you may be placed on a waiting list until space is available.**

  • Dogwood Elementary

  • Southview Elementary
  • 6:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.
