Our special relationship with West Woodland School allows us to build a cohesive structure for school age children at Kids Inc. Kids Inc is a part of the Seattle School District Alignment Program and our teachers provide programming that is engaging and interesting but it also includes key educational points that supports children's learning.
Our morning program is offered from 7:00 AM to 8:45 AM. We offer a nutritious snack, a physical activity, and an art activity every day. We send children to school either by a school bus or they are released to their classrooms at West Woodland.
Our after school program opens at 3:00 PM, and runs through 6:00PM. We split the children into two groups, the Grizzlies (K-2nd Grade) and the Kingsnakes (3-5th grade). The grizzlies are based in the main room, and the Kingsnakes in the West Woodland Cafeteria. Children store their belongings in their room, and spend free time there as well.
Children are encouraged to enjoy the outdoors immediately after school, which includes group games, individual play or the wonderful playground provided by West Woodland School. A snack is provided in the main from 3:00 — 4:45. Imaginative play, games, computers and an extensive array of various building materials are always available to students.
From 3:15 — 3:45 M-Th, there is a teacher monitored study hall, where the children are given a quiet space to work on their homework. Children may choose to participate in study hall, or their parents may choose to enroll them
During the hours of 3:45 — 4:45, children are offered a variety of clubs that they can choose to participate in. We draw on the talents of our staff, and each teacher provides an average of 3 clubs per week. Club themes include: cooking, science activities, arts and crafts, community service, music, drama, and technology.
