After School

Learning Outside the Box

We understand that for many busy and working parents it is challenging to find an enriching atmosphere for after school care.

Kids 'R' Kids has developed a truly innovative program for After-School Care, Days When Elementary Schools are not in Session, School Holidays, and Summer Camp. Our program instills a continued love of learning for children 5 through 12 years old. Offering playtime learning that meets the requirements of the NC Standard Course of Learning, 21st Century Skills, and Science, Technology, and Mathematics (STEM), our program provides tutoring, mentoring, organized activities, Career Voyages, dramatic play to enhance your child`s imagination, outdoor playtime, and many more fun experiences in a safe, warm, and friendly environment.

A Breath of Fresh Air

Our After-School Program believes in making learning fun. We welcome our After-School children to an environment with plenty of opportunities to unwind and enjoy being kids! From the large activity room and spacious outdoor playground designed specifically for the older child to the GaGa Ball Pit and Basketball court, Kids 'R' Kids meets all the requirements to captivate and satisfy the needs of the school-aged child.

Helping Hands, Helping Hearts

At Kids 'R' Kids, your child can relax, knowing that he belongs in a loving, supportive environment and is encouraged to create lasting friendships and connections with his teachers and classmates.
Our “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy still holds true in the After-School Program. Kids 'R' Kids fosters loving kindness, respect, and understanding in every facet of our approach.
