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.

Kids Care & Covid-19

Our top priority is the safety and well being of your student.

We are prepared to adapt our program, its locations, and hours to align with the Carlsbad Unified School District’s (CUSD) reopening plan and guidelines from San Diego County and California public health officials. Kids Care commits to provide extensive safety protocols, enhanced homework support, and a fun place to be outside of school hours.

Register today to reserve your students’ Kids Care spot and allow us to safely plan group sizes and accommodate diverse schedules, ages, and needs.

We are currently registering under the assumption that there will be a full reopen on campus for all students and staff. If the CUSD makes changes to its elementary program to meet required limitations on capacity and/or spacing, we will also adjust our Kids Care tuition and hours of operation to accommodate a hybrid in-person or distance learning model.

Please email Cheryl if you have any questions or concerns.

Your student will benefit for years to come!

Note: Fall 2020 Registration Opens May 1, 2020.

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. 


What Our Families are Saying

The older children are great at helping my kindergartner with computers and games and are very inclusive. The staff are very caring as well and very patient with very busy little kids!

– Parent, Magnolia Elementary

The teachers are amazing, which is the most important. They keep the kids entertained, and the curriculum mirrors that of the classroom. It is a wonderful combo of fun and learning.

– Parent. Hope Elementary

On a daily basis, my daughter tells me she loves Kids’ Care more than Kindergarten! There have been countless times when I have picked her up, and she says, ‘I want to stay a little longer!
