2021-22 MCKINLEY CARE (TK/KINDER)
McKinley is proud to offer Before and After Care to our TK and Kinder families.
A typical day at McKinley Care might look like this:
● Students arrive and are signed in by a staff member. Students place their
possessions in a cubby or other assigned place and are offered a quiet place to work on
homework or play outside (weather permitting). Ipads are to stay in backpacks unless
students arrange to do homework with staff permission.
● At approximately 2:45 will be snack time (family provided.) Students, if they
have signed up, have the option of a structured activity such as Board Games, Art,
Freeze Dance, uncompetitive games, or traditional games.
● The balance of the afternoon is spent with the continuation of the games,
homework, free play, and social time with friends.
● On Fridays, minimum or rainy days a movie option may be available for kids who
may be overstimulated.
McKinley Child Care is available exclusively to students of McKinley Elementary School
TK and Kindergarten (Boys and Girls club provides care for 1-8)
