Benderson Family Building Kids’ Place:

With our school districts using distance and hybrid learning models, The Kids’ Place After School Program is extending its services to provide both regular after school child care, and also allowing families to add on a full day component for distance-learning days. Please use the 2020-2021 registration form to select the schedule you need.

Option #1: After school care on both school and non-school days (2:30-6:00 pm): We will provide after school care (2:30pm – 6:00pm) Monday – Friday. On school days that your child is registered for Kids’ Place, we will greet students off the bus at the usual drop-off time. On non-school days, you may drop your child off to Kids’ Place between 2:30-3:00pm to participate in our usual activities.

Option #2: Full day care on non-school days (8:00am – 6:00pm): We will provide full day child care with the opportunity for distance learning classwork to be completed on days the children are not in school. These full day fees are supplementary to the Kids’ Place after school costs. You must be enrolled in the Kids’ Place After School Program to add-on the full day option. (We assume a maximum of 3 days/week for this option.)

Holland Family Building Kids’ Place:

With our school districts using distance and hybrid learning models, The Kids’ Place After School Program is extending its services to provide both regular after school child care, and also allowing families to add on a full day component for distance-learning days. We are offering an after school only option, a hybrid option to mirror the A & B day schedules of the Buffalo Public Schools, and a full day add-on option for full distance learning schools. Please select the correct registration form for your needs. (After school only, please use the after school & hybrid form). 

Option #1: Regular daily after school program (2:30-6:00pm): On school days that your child is registered for Kids’ Place, we will greet students off the bus at the usual drop-off time. On non-school days, you are still registered for the after school program and you may drop your child off to Kids’ Place between 2:30-3:00pm to participate in our usual activities.

Option #2: Full day care (8:00am-6:00pm): Starting September 8, it is possible schools will not resume in-person learning in any form. We have included an additional fee structure for the monthly cost of adding full day care (instead of the alternating weeks). These full day fees are supplementary to the Kids’ Place after school costs. You must be enrolled in the Kids’ Place After School Program to add-on the full day option.
