DDDC Kids Club Program

(5-13 years)

Our School Age program is offered for children 5-12 years of age. We provide before and after school care. Breakfast is provided in the morning before the children get on the bus. We are located within the Lincoln Consolidated School District, therefore we get bus service to and from Lincoln. We also provide before and after school care for East Arbor Charter Academy. We transport the children to and from East Arbor Charter Academy with our own DDDC bus. 

Before School

7:00 am – 7:30 am Arrival and Routines: Children arrive and are greeted by the staff. Breakfast is served during the morning choice time. Morning routines are completed, and children are given the opportunity to acclimate to the environment at their own pace while they wait their time to begin the school day. Teachers work with families to provide a supportive, consistent environment. Breakfast will also be served during this time
7:00 am – 8:15 am Choice Time: During this time we allow children to make their own choices on what they want to do. Children are given maximum choice of freedom to explore various stimulating activities.

After School

3:30 pm – 4:00 pm Homework and Snack Time:  Children are encouraged to do their homework during this time and any who need assistance will get that from the teacher assigned to their group. Snack is served. 
4:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Choice Time: Interest Centers are open for children’s participation as they arrive after school. These include: language, fine motor, math and science, writing, gross motor, art and dramatic play.

4:30 pm – 5:30 pm Outside Choice Time: Children participate in outdoor playtime. Teachers engage in play with the children while supervising activities. Time may vary based on the weather.
5:30 pm – 6:00 pm Literacy Time: The state mandates that we spend thirty minutes on math and literacy activities. The choices include but are not limited to books, books on CD/tape, literacy games, math games, and occasionally a storyteller.
