After School Care
There are thousands of after-school sites across the country and many of them have recognized the role they can play in fighting childhood obesity by teaching kids how to make healthy choices in their lives. While all of these settings are different in nature, they do have one thing in common – the children. YMCAs, Boys and Girls Clubs, and Park and Recreation organizations have discovered that instead of reinventing the wheel they can implement a program that is both cost-effective and proven to be effective, CATCH Kids Club. For some, CKC has become the centerpiece of the programs they offer and these organizations have become an important voice in delivering a coordinated message to children about the importance of physical activity and nutrition. The unstructured time after school and during the summer provides a ready-made opportunity for programs to fill this child care need with fun, hands-on nutrition activities as well as enjoyable structured physical activity. CATCH Kids Club “strongly aligns” with the National Afterschool Association (NAA) Program Standards, designed to describe best practices in out-of-school youth ages 5-14.

Kids Klub After School Program
Genoa-Kingston School District
A safe and fun environment for your child(ren) to spend after school time with friends. We will provide a snack, play games, crafts and various other activities. Kids Klub provides a flexible schedule of activities and opportunities for all. We have “homework lists” for parents wanting their children to do their school work before play. Early releases are a part of this program. The program hours are dismissal time until 6:00 pm. Program is available to kindergarten thru 5th graders. Handbooks are available at the office and necessary forms must be completed prior to beginning the program.
Steps we are taking to keep your child and our staff safe:
We will be following all guidelines provided to us from the CDC/ISBE/IDPH.
Your child will be given their own space that is at least 6’ from another child. They will put their belongings there and they will be in this space when there is downtime or any time that they are required to be there.
Tables, chairs etc. will be disinfected frequently during the time we are at GES.
During lunch and snack time, children will be given a specific area at a table at least 6’ away from other students.
We will spend as much time outside as we possibly can.
Children will be required to wear a mask inside at all times. If we are outside and can maintain 6’ft, they may take off their mask.
We are finalizing our parent handbook at the moment. Once it is finished, we will email the forms to everyone that is registered.
