Kids Connection

Extended Care Program

Our program strives to provide a safe, educationally enriching, fun and rewarding experience for all students of Athens City Schools during the hours where there may be no adult supervision in the home. Children will have the opportunity to engage in activities that will benefit them emotionally, physically, and educationally. The program includes crafts, sports and games, snacks, art and music, field trips, and many other creative and cultural activities. A special time each day will be allotted for homework and tutorial assistance, if needed. The program is conducted and planned by staff trained to meet the needs of children and to provide positive adult role models. Parent input is important to our programs’ growth.

The KIDS Connection programs are open to all city students including tuition students in grades pre-kindergarten through eight, as well as private school students and home school students (K-8) who are zoned for ACS.
