summer kidsSummer Program & KC Xtreme

Kids’ Corner offers multiple exciting programs during the summer, including our regular Kids’ Corner Summer Program (K-5), and KC Xtreme for Middle School students (completed grades 6-8), with the final week also open to rising 6th graders.

All of Kids’ Corner’s summer programs uphold the same safe, engaging, caring and values-driven environment, coupled with a fun-loving, learning-filled atmosphere that has been central to the Kids’ Corner After School Program for over 30 years.

The Kids’ Corner Summer Program (K-5) is OPEN TO ALL FAMILIES in the community. (Priority is given to enrolled families.) Registration for the 2018 Kids’ Corner Summer Program will begin on January 15th for families currently enrolled in the After School Program. Registration for KC Xtreme will begin after March 15th. Open enrollment for the Summer Program begins February 15th for non-Kids' Corner families. All registrations received before this date will be held until February 15th and then processed in the order they were received.

Kids’ Corner Summer Program – Completed Grades K through 5

The Kids’ Corner (KC) Summer Program upholds the same values, safe and caring environment, friendships, love of fun and learning that have been a part of the Kids’ Corner After School Program for over 30 years. The Program is OPEN TO ALL FAMILIES in the Winchester community and surrounding towns giving everyone the chance to have the Kids’ Corner experience.

Our Summer Program runs daily from 9am to 5pm with options for early drop-off and late pick-up.
It promotes creativity, learning and physical well-being through a variety of morning enrichments taught by specialists in their field, daily activities and weekly field trips. Please click the link below to see an example of our daily programming.

Enrichments fall into four categories:

beachball

  • Educational/Academic

  • Movement/Motor Skill

  • Creative/Arts

  • Potpourri

Afternoon activities include off-site excursions to local attractions providing water play and Kids’ Corner’s beloved Project Sign-Up. To add some variety, there are weekly program-wide theme days on Thursdays and field trips every Wednesday. Lunch is not provided however you have the option to purchase lunch daily through our partnerships with D’Agostino’s Deli and Gloria’s Pizza. Details will be provided the week before your child attends as to not get lost in the shuffle. We do provide a daily snack in the afternoon.

Participants will be broken up into groups based on grade completed. We anticipate the breakdown to be Kindergarten, Grades 1-2 & Grades 3-4-5. This is subject to change based on enrollment demands on any given week. The KC Summer Program typically maintains a 1:6 to 1:8 ratio at all times. Every group will have two co-lead teachers and an assistant teacher if applicable. Staff will mainly consist of current Kids’ Corner teachers with a few outside professionals mixed in. The staff have diverse backgrounds in the Arts, athletics, education, history, music, and theatre. Volunteer opportunities are available for high school students aged 16 or older.
