The Kids Inc. Summer Program will be held at these locations:
Kids Inc. Summer Enrichment program, under the supervision of the Sioux Falls School District Elementary Curriculum Coordinator, is a school-based enrichment and academic support program that provides safe, quality care and embedded learning for children during the summer. The complementary learning environment at Kids Inc. is designed for school-aged children who will benefit from enrichment activities in groups with a 15 to 1 ratio. There will be one Kids Inc. staff member on-site for every 15 children. The staff-child ratio must be maintained at all times including while children are on the playground. Any necessary accommodations for a child will be reviewed by the Kids Inc. program administration.
Overall, our enrichment program strives to be fun, challenging, and inviting and to use innovative ideas and activities to promote children’s learning. The program is conducted and planned by a staff trained to meet the needs of children and to provide positive adult role models.
