Elk Rapids Summer Kids' Club Program is designed to provide a nurturing and enriching experience for all students, Preschool age (3 years old and toilet trained) through Fifth Grade. The program is sponsored by the Elk Rapids Public Schools and is licensed by the Division of Day Care Licensing. All children in Summer Kids' Club must be registered. In addition, both Lakeland and Mill Creek Elementary Schools will host this summer program.
The philosophy of the Summer Kids' Club Program is to provide an atmosphere that will be conducive to meeting the physical, social/emotional and cognitive needs of the children it serves. The program will exist in an open, relaxed setting, which includes an underlying structure with flexibility, in order to meet the individual needs of each child.
The Summer Kids' Club Program will be formatted around structured daily activities to include story time, physical fitness and movement, learning and play centers, arts and crafts, lunch, snack, outside time and a mandatory quiet time each day. The program will also include participation in the Elk Rapids Library Summer Reading Program, regularly scheduled field trips and a summer's end celebration. Weekly newsletters will be sent home with your child outlining activities for the following week and a signed permission slip for all field trips will be required. In essence, we are going to have lots of fun with your chlid!
