Afterschool

Spanish Dual Immersion Program

We are thrilled to be able to offer Kindergartners and first graders, whether Kid Works alumni or not, a home away from home.  The program takes place in the Bungalow and is for those Kindergartners and first graders who are dismissed from school at 2:00 pm.  We do pick ups for students from Fremont Elementary only.  Transportation from other schools will need to be arranged with other parents.  We would be happy to help make arrangements.

The program is Spanish dual immersion because we understand the importance of a second language taught in a natural setting.  Children will cook, garden, and have some down time for some good quality play.  This will mostly be conducted in Spanish to allow children the language development at the same time.   The program is ideal for those who have already been exposed to Spanish as a first or second language or even those who have never been introduced to Spanish.    We are flexible about making adjustments to the program based on the group of children and their needs or experience.

2020/2021 Program with COVID-19 Protocols

Fall Session Dates:

Tuition: $1497/month

Some of the considerations that informed this decision include:

  1. Class size: Maintaining the limit of 12 children per class, with the Bungalow (for ages 4.5+) limited to fewer children since the classroom is smaller than the other two classrooms.
  2. Dedicated teachers: Teachers will remain with their cohort for the duration of the school day to minimize other staff having to step in.
  3. Smaller teacher to student ratio: With smaller group sizes, children can expect more opportunities for one-on-one work with a teacher. The ratio will be 1:6 in the Garden and Sun Rooms, and will be 1:8 in the Bungalow.
  4. Accommodating our full-day families: Most of our families need a full-day schedule so offering a longer school day would work for the majority of families.
  5. Weekly staff meeting: We will have a shorter school day on Fridays so our staff can meet to connect over school news and curriculum planning. We plan to conduct socially-distanced staff meetings outdoors after the children are picked up from school.
  6. Robust health protocol and enhanced cleaning and sanitizing: Extra measures in place to keep everyone as healthy as possible.
