What is Project Kids?

Project Kids is a certified childcare center that is designed to provide a safe and supervised environment for children Age 3 through Grade 6. Our program offers a variety of activities in both group and individual situations.  Some of the activities include arts and crafts, sports, creative and dramatic play, recreational skills, community exploration, reading, science, manipulative and construction toys, outdoor play, and special events. To align with Kasson-Mantorville School District’s goal of Personalizing Learning, Project Kids is offering various “Clubs” in these activity areas to K-6th graders occasionally throughout the year. Preschoolers will have daily centers to explore their interests as well.

Weather permitting, children will spend time outdoors each day and/or will use the multi-purpose room for active play.  “Free Choice/Enrichment Time” will be provided for the children to pursue their own interests in a safe, friendly environment.
