Kid’s Club is our Reggio Emilia inspired after-school care program giving children in kindergarten through eighth grade a safe place to have fun with kids from the entire community.

Think of Kid’s Club as a second neighborhood for your child.

Our unique campus gives your child both indoor and outdoor environments to explore with their Kid’s Club friends under the supervision of our experienced staff.

Our Reggio Emilia inspired educators provide stimulating enrichment opportunities to spark your child’s curiosity.

  • Schedule Adjustment: We must know 30 days in advance of any time off or schedule adjustments

Kids Club Building

The Kid’s Club building design features spaces that foster your child’s imagination and natural need to explore. Home-based rooms invite your child and family to develop relationships with our educators and children.

We allow your child to visit other classrooms to learn to reach out and expand his or her community and self.

Our backyard provides natural settings for playing sports, gardening, cross-country skiing in the snow, and exploring our open fields and wooded areas.

Kids Club Year

Kid’s Club begins on the first day of school in Andover. We are open on the schools’ half days and in-service days. We are closed on some holidays and during the December break. However, we are open during February and April school vacation weeks. Kid’s Club stays open through the end of the school year and will open for in-service days through the end of June. Kid’s Club & our summer programs are closed during 4th of July week.

Kid’s Club is open on snow days, depending on storm severity. We alert parents to our opening or closing by emails and posts on our voicemail.

Kid’s Club is closed in the summer; however, SHED Children’s Campus offers Summer Programs.

Child-Staff Ratios

Kid’s Club has a capacity of 200. Group size varies depending on the needs of the child and family. Our ratio for state licensing is 13-1, however we strive to maintain a lower child-to-staff ratio.

Kid’s Club staff reflect a diversity of training and experience in early childhood education and school-aged childcare. SHED Children’s Campus provides staff development and training opportunities throughout the year.
