Celebrate KIDS!

Our Program

Celebrate KIDS! is a faith-based after school enrichment program designed to meet the academic, physical, social, and spiritual needs of children in grades K through 6.  A K4 class will be available if there is adequate interest and a teacher is available.  We offer a high-quality program where children are loved and nurtured by experienced, mature staff who model Christ-like behavior and help children apply Biblical truths in a real and relevant way. A typical day includes homework assistance, a theme-based enrichment activity, an engaging Bible devotion, recreation, and a nutritious snack option.

Daily Schedule

Our daily schedule, Monday – Thursday, is designed to meet the academic, physical, social, and spiritual needs of the various age groups we serve.  Students will remain in their classrooms for snack, homework, and enrichment. Students will typically gather together for their daily devotion although sometimes they are conducted in each classroom. 

On “Fun Friday,” children will enjoy games, our praise party, and free play in the recreation room, as well as a movie on the big screen to conclude their day.  Electronics are permitted with a parent’s permission.


On Monday through Thursday, children are given between 35 – 50 minutes, depending on their school grade, to complete homework. All children are supervised and assisted as needed during this time period. Staff members will make every effort to check the accuracy of each child’s work. However, this level of assistance is not always possible due to the length of the assignment or time constraints. Students may use their personal laptops for homework.  Some computers are available at CKIDS!  It is the parent’s responsibility to check homework each night to ensure completion of homework/IXL time and accuracy.  If a child is picked up prior to 4:15, homework may not be completed.  Reading is required every day.  We have a library with a wide-array of school age books available.  If a child completes his or homework prior to the end of homework time, supplemental assignments are given utilizing Brain Quest workbooks and other educational materials.


We believe children in grades K-7 should have several opportunities for physical activity. Therefore, we build in recreation time each and every day.


A theme-based enrichment activity is scheduled for Monday – Thursday. These engaging activities are designed to spark creativity and generate excitement!  Enrichment themes include, but are not limited to: Art, Science, Spanish, American Sign Language, Build It, Kid Fitness, Team Building, and Writing Workshop.

Chapel Service & Bible Devotion

Children participate in a large group chapel service each day during the school year. During this time, children participate in singing, God’s word is shared, scripture memory is emphasized, and character-building is instilled into their daily lives. Devotion time also includes a time of prayer. During camps and full days, chapel or a daily devotion is included.


A snack is served shortly after children arrive at Celebrate KIDS! each afternoon. A healthy option such as fruits or vegetables is provided.  On full days, a morning and afternoon snack is served. Children can bring an extra snack, if desired, and are encouraged to bring their own water bottle.  It is imperative that parents notify us of any food allergies.


Spring and Winter Camp

CKIDS! provides a spring and winter camp for our spring and winter break students.  We model camps after our summer camps with themes, activities, morning enrichment workshops, academic learning centers, daily chapel/devotions, and field trips.  

Summer Camp

Our summer camps begin the first full week of summer break. Parents have the freedom to choose all camp weeks or to just select those camps which meet the needs of your family. Our camps are designed around various themes which are incorporated into our games, activities, crafts, enrichments, devotions, and field trips. Field trip days are typically on Tuesdays and Thursdays unless otherwise indicated.  Park trips are typically on Wednesday and Friday.  A field trip and park schedule is published each summer.  Our camps also include academic learning centers with the purpose of helping students retain information learned during the school year and prepare for the upcoming school year. 

**Tuition for the week is published in the brochure prior to respective camp; this cost includes snacks, activities, and field trip costs. Siblings receive a discounted rate.

Inclement Weather

On inclement weather days, Celebrate KIDS! will operate on a full-day schedule unless otherwise stated. If weather conditions create a dangerous traveling situation, we will close for the day.
