Elementary School: Campagna Kids
Campagna Kids is a licensed before- and after-school program encouraging creative thinking in children from kindergarten through fifth grade. Its programming follows standards developed by the National Afterschool Alliance and provides small-group learning activities that include chess, science, dance, and drama, as well as math and reading clubs for each grade level.
Campagna Kids offers services to families during the winter and spring breaks as well as during the school year, and implements a summer camp program. We provide services on a sliding-fee scale to accommodate a diverse mix of children. Parents and kids alike rate the program as highly effective, based on evaluation results generated through a third-party evaluation firm.
