JOIN THE CLUB

Transitioning into elementary schools is a big step. Even if a big brother or sister leads the way, change is both exciting and challenging. Club Kinder is here to help. Our program is an extension to the Carlsbad Unified School District’s Kindergarten curriculum and is designed to give students a strong start in school and in life.

Curriculum

Enrichment Activities

Approach STEAM subjects in an engaging, age-appropriate way to foster creativity and a love for learning

English Language Arts

Develop a greater vocabulary, enunciation, and confidence in speaking with language-focused activities

Socialize

Develop an understanding of relationships, sharing, and communication skills with other young learners

Full-time Support

Be supported by experienced staff that care and have the time to nurture and guide successful habits

Begin the Elementary Exploration!

At Club Kinder, your student will learn and develop life skills and be given every opportunity to succeed at school. The convenient onsite location and flexible schedule that welcomes both morning and afternoon TK/K students, extends Kindergarten to a full-day exploration! In addition, it is the only Kindergarten program in Carlsbad that gives 100% of its proceeds back to the Carlsbad Unified School District for K-12 programs in music, STEAM, and educational innovation. Your student will benefit for years to come!

Engaging, Experienced Staff

The care of every student is our top priority. Our experienced staff is licensed through the State of California and we guarantee a student-staff ratio of 14:1. Every student is given attention and opportunity to have a safe, fun, and inspiring experience. Parents are encouraged to collaborate about progress along the way. In addition, staff members participate in ongoing training in curriculum, student behavior and First Aid/CPR. 

Safety is a Priority!

Kids Care takes essential actions to create a physical environment that promotes student and staff safety through established protocols and procedures. We comply with the State of California guidelines and are aligned with the Carlsbad Unified School District. We continually monitor guidelines, update our procedures, and will inform you of any changes.

For Covid-19 mitigation and prevention measures, please see the COVID-19 Decision Trees for K-12 Schools that is published by the San Diego County Office of Education. As of March 14, 2022, all students are permitted to wear a mask if they so choose, but masks are not required.

Hours & Tuition

We can accommodate a variety of schedules. Please select the best option for your family. Full-day Adventures are also available during school breaks and holidays for an additional daily fee.

*Club Kinder is an extension of kindergarten school hours. Schedules vary for Early Birds and Late Owls. Register for the Kinder schedule you requested with CUSD. If that changes, email [email protected] as soon as you know. We'll accommodate your schedule's change!
