After School Program


During the 2020-21 School Year, as long as the SPS is completely online, our After School Program is as follows:

Serves: Kids K-3rd grade, attending any school.  Parents drop off/pick up children at Kaleidoscope.

Hours: 2:00-6:00 

Ratio of Staff:Children: No more than 10 kids enrolled, with 2 teachers. 

Tuition and Program: Same as below.

When SPS goes back to completely in-person instruction, we will return to picking up children enrolled in our After School Program from Blaine K-8 and Magnolia Elementary School.  Children enrolled at other schools could still attend, but would need to be dropped off at Kaleidoscope by their parents.

If SPS goes to a hybrid program during the 2020-21 School Year, our program will remain 2:00-6:00, with parents dropping kids off.

Program:  Our goal is to provide a calm, relaxed place for kids to have time to socialize, play outdoors, build, create art projects, read, dance, and generally have a good time!  We go outside every day, rain or shine, to play at the Magnolia Playfield.  We provide snack daily.  

Tuition: Same as below.

Regular Program:

NOTE: We will return to “Regular Program” for the 2021-22 School Year IF SPS is 100% in-person.  If they are online or hybrid, our program will be adjusted.  We will contact enrolled families with that information if necessary.

Kaleidoscope School Staff will pick up registered kids from Blaine and Magnolia schools at established meeting places.  When weather allows (ie, most days unless it is pouring rain!) they’ll walk together to the Magnolia Community Center Playground for 30-45 minutes of physical activity.  Then, the group will walk together to Kaleidoscope School’s School Age Classroom for the remainder of the afternoon.  Snack will be provided, as well as time for reading, games, art projects, and special activities.  Time and space for homework is also available. 

Parents can pick up their child(ren) any time before 6:00 pm.
