Kids Way
Before & After School Program
& Summer Camp

Kids Way Before & After School Program is located at Mt. Pilchuck Elementary School, utilizing the stage/classroom, gymnasium, and outdoor playground. Activities would include, arts & crafts, LEGOS, Magnatiles, cars, dolls, board games, and much more. We have indoor PE in the mornings where kids can play basketball, four square, and free choice. After School kids have an hour of outside recess, where they can run, jump, and climb. Kids Way outdoor recess includes the climber, tetherball, and the covered play area during rainy weather. 

Kids Way School Age Programs (K thru 5th Grade) are adjusted for early release, non-school days, and school breaks.
