About Us

Convenient, Affordable, Quality Care.

Kids Care delivers convenient, affordable, quality care right at your elementary school! We strive to enrich every student’s educational experience and personal development through curriculum-based programs, homework club, age-appropriate activities and more. 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 child is given attention and the opportunity to have a safe, fun, and inspiring experience.

Please Note: Enrollment is not guaranteed. We add students to Kids Care based on availability at the elementary school site. We are working hard to expand our program and offer the schedule and site you need.

Reasons to Join!

Quality of Care

Licensed staff have extensive training including early childhood development coursework. Our programs are in person and on the elementary school campuses.

Engaging Experience

Students will experience enriching activities and movement outside. Students will be grouped with school peers from their grades to socialize and build friendships. 



Our onsite program is the affordable, safe, and convenient option! No extra transportation is required.


Academic Partner

Our student care programs will have a staff liaison who will communicate with each school and grade level to address academic needs.

Kids Care is the only student care programs in Carlsbad that give 100% of its proceeds back to the Carlsbad Unified School District .

NOTE: You must receive a confirmation email in order to start care. You are not enrolled until you receive the confirmation email and a confirmed start date.

Engaging, Experienced Team

Every Kids Care site has an experienced, licensed team managed by an onsite coordinator. Team members are chosen for their experience and passion for working with students. Kids Care teachers must have college course units in Education and/or Recreation. In addition, we offer ongoing training in communication, curriculum, discipline, and First Aid/CPR certification.

Our Kids Care. Our Schools. Our Community

Kids Care is the only before-and-after school program in Carlsbad that gives 100% of its proceeds back to the Carlsbad Unified School District for programs in music, STEAM, and educational innovation that benefits every student from kindergarten through graduation. Your elementary student will experience FIRST robotics education, weekly music education, trips to Agua Hedionda Lagoon, BizTown, and more because of Kids Care proceeds.

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.
