DaycareKids Point daycare offers a safe place for little ones to go. Our daycare classes are for babies through 3 ½ year olds. We offer them a curriculum starting as babies with sign language and helping them hit their milestones through a variety of different play activities. The curriculum advances as they age and when they are one year old they have a set curriculum they learn throughout the day. We also think physical activity and outside play is very important to meet developmental needs. They get physical activity through gym time, dance parties, and obstacle courses. We get all ages outside when the weather is nice. If the children are 2 years and older we get them outside two times a day as long as the weather is above 0 degrees. We remind parents to dress them appropriately for the weather. Some days we are out for a shorter amount of time if it is too cold 🙂 Our child to teacher ratio is set per state guidelines and is one teacher to five children. We have two locations with the daycare classrooms and that is Kids Point North and Kids Point South.
Preschool & Pre-KKids Point has several different preschool classes depending on your child's age. To go into the preschool you need to be at least 3 years old and potty trained. The classroom ratio is one teacher to ten children. Our curriculum is Christian based and centered around the Bible. We have preschool classes and also different levels of Pre-K classes for children prior to kindergarten. If you are holding your child for an extra year of Pre-K then they will get our advanced Pre-K curriculum. Children leaving Kids Point Pre-K class will know how to write independently, know their name, address, phone number. Start reading and knowing several of their site words, also knowing the beginning math facts of adding and subtraction. We think it is very important to balance learning and fun. That is why during the school year we have one day a week that is an extra fun activity at the center or a field trip outing. These may include baking, special science experiments, swimming, Gymnastics Academy, bowling, Run Wild in Rapid City, and Fire and Police Station. During the summer months we continue to do curriculum but it is more laid back and fun in the sun. We do several field trips a week during this time. That includes outdoor swimming pools, parks, hikes, ponds to fish, nature walks, ice cream shops and so much more. Our Preschool Programs are located at Kid Point North.
School-Age ProgramKids Point offers a variety of school age programs. The classroom ratio is one teacher to 15 kids. This would be for kindergarteners through 12 year olds. We have a before school program where you can drop off as early as 5:30 am and we take them to their individual school. We have an after school program where we go pick your child up at their school, provide snacks, fun activities and homework help if needed. What makes Kids Point stand out to other school age programs is we are open on holidays, snow days, in the summer, and also early release days. When the children are out of school we provide fun activities and field trips! In the summer months we provide a full day summer camp. During the summer we offer a curriculum appropriate for your child's age, we also include a Christian based component that is centered around the Bible. This helps them not lose the information they had learned the prior year and keep them fresh to go into the next year of school. The summer curriculum is more laid back and fun. We do several field trips and outings every week. That includes outdoor swimming pools, parks, hikes, ponds to fish, nature walks, Reptile Gardens and Dinosaur Park in Rapid City, ice cream shops, bike rides and so much more. We also have a lot of fun activities outdoors like water balloon wars, slip and slides, sprinklers, and relay races are just a few. Kids Point School-Age program is located at Kids Point Central.
Your school-aged child will have a blast at our summer program! We offer curriculum and learning focused around fun in the sun. We will take many field trips during this time. Some of the field trips include hiking, going to the park, pool, and swimming lessons. In the summer months we provide a full day summer camp Monday through Friday 6am to 6pm starting in June and going into July and August.
Before & After School Program
Before School Program - This program is for children 5-12 years old that are school-aged and enrolled in the public school system. Your child can be dropped off before school at our facility. We will personally transport them to school. We strive to make mornings easier for parents. If you have children already attending the center, having one stop in the morning vs. several stops will simplify things. Or, you might be a parent that has early hours at work and struggles to get your child to school. No matter what the situation, we want to help and be a resource for you.
After School Program - This program is for 5-12-year-old children that are school-aged and enrolled in the public school system. We will personally pick your child up from their school and bring them to the center. We will provide a nutritious snack, help with homework if needed, and offer fun activities and games.
A full day Friday program is offered every Friday starting in September and going through the end of May. This is beneficial for children that attend schools that are not in session on Fridays. During the days we have a field trip or extra fun activity planned at the center. Some of them include indoor swimming, gymnastics academy, bowling, movie and pajama day, baking, and science experiments. If they are not doing a field trip they have plenty of fun in the sports arena, foam pit, playing Nintendo, or building a Lego masterpiece in our Lego land. This program is offered at Kids Point Central.
