KASP provides an after-school program for children attending kindergarten through 5th grade. Depending on the number of children enrolled in our after-school program, we group the children into three different classes: Cheetahs, Tiger and Vipers. We offer a safe and enriching opportunity to be with peers after school under direct adult supervision.
Physical play, homework time, projects and age-appropriate games.
Transportation provided from selected neighboring schools.
Half-day kindergartners meet from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Full day kindergartners and students in grades 1st through 5th grade meet from 3:00 pm until 5:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Full day care
We also provide full day care for enrolled children when schools are closed due to holidays, in-service days and extended breaks.
Our ratios for our after-school classrooms are as follows:
|Cheetahs||12 to 1 with a maximum of 24 kindergartners|
|Tigers||12 to 1 with a maximum of 24 1st & 2nd graders|
|Vipers||12 to 1 with a maximum of 12 3rd, 4th and 5th graders|
Cheetah Class/After Kindergarten 11:30-5:15/ full day K 3-5:15
Tiger/Viper School Age Program 3:00-5:15
Transportation is available to a limited number of schools, depending upon how many children sign up per school site. This program provides children with a safe, enriched environment to enjoy with their peers under direct supervision. Physical play, homework time, projects, and a special martial arts class with Lisa Peterson of Boise Konkondo Martial Arts is included in our afterschool curriculum. Except for federal holidays, we often remain open when public schools are closed.
For the Fall of 2018, we are picking up from kindergarten at Washington Elementary, after school at St. Joe’s, Longfellow, Washington, and Highlands. Parents can also provide transportation and bring children to us.
Summer School Age Program a.k.a. Kid’s Kamp
During the summer months, KASP offers “Kid’s Kamp,” a program for children entering Kindergarten and finishing 5th grade. The Cheetah class is for children entering Kindergarten and 1st grade in the fall while the Tiger/Viper class is for those entering 2nd through 5th grades in the fall.
This successful, multi-age program enjoys trips to a variety of parks, swimming pools, swim lessons, restaurants for tours, and other choices which may include Planet Kid, the Discovery Center, and Zoo Boise. Children also enjoy classroom guests who bring special activities into the classroom. The themed weeks/months help teach children about history, world cultures, and teamwork. With a large focus being on social-emotional development.
