School Age Childcare (K-5)
The Northbrook Park District partners with School Districts #27, 30 and 31 to offer the following extended care programs during the school year for children in grades K-5:
|Before and After School Care|
|School Day Off Program|
|Holiday Break Program|
2014-2015 Kinder Campus
The Northbrook Park District and School Districts #27 and #30 are pleased to offer Kinder Campus, a multifaceted enrichment experience for kindergarten students who want a longer school day. With a philosophy of learning through play and experience, this unique program combines fun activities with academic concepts. Kinder Campus works with the schools to reinforce their lessons, offering individual help as needed.
Each day provides activities that may not fit into a half day of school, such as art, music, sports, science, Spanish, outdoor play and field trips. Classes offer a balance of structured and unstructured activities, helping children learn to cooperate with others and develop self-esteem. This program follows the respective school districts’ calendars.
