The WISC Kids Club community promotes a nurturing, cooperative, educationally appropriate environment, enabling each student to flourish. It is the goal of this program and the desire of its staff to partner with families in providing learning through many age appropriate hands-on experiences, to foster respect and caring for one another, and to create a setting in which children may explore the world around them.
Our Kid’s Club Preschool provides excitement, fun and learning for ages 2–5. Students have access to a mini-gym, indoor and outdoor playgrounds, turf, and gymnastics room, which enhances gross motor skills and creates a healthy attitude toward physical fitness.
Dedicated staff strive to provide an environment where children can play, learn, and explore. Our program is designed to prepare children for kindergarten through a curriculum that promotes education, physical activity, and cooperative play.
Here at the WISC we offer a multitude of extracurricular activities. If your children are signed up for any programs that begin after 3:30 PM, we provide a dedicated staff member to make sure every child in Kid’s Club is brought to their afternoon activities (soccer and gymnastics). The staff member will also bring them back to their group/class, as long as the class ends before 6:00 PM.
