A little about Kids Company…
Kids Company gives kids daily opportunities that parents know are vital for their child's healthy growth. Kids Company provides children with life-enhancing programs that help young students see their potential and possibilities; we focus on character development, educational development, health and fitness skills, the arts and recreation. Parents love it because they know their kids are in the hands of youth guidance professionals who really care about them. Kids Company provides a way for parents to give their kids a quality before and after school experience at an affordable price. Parents only pay for the time their child is present at Kids Company. Students love Kids Company because they have many activities to choose from, including computer access, gym activities, outdoor games, arts and crafts, individual help with homework or just hanging out with friends.
