About KIDSTOP

About KIDSTOP

KIDSTOP is a school-age child care program for K-6 located at 13 schools in the St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids-Rice and Sartell-St. Stephen school districts. Kids love KIDSTOP because they have so many activities to choose from, including Power Hour homework help, computer access, gym activities, outdoor games, arts and crafts or just hanging out with friends. Parents love it because they know their kids are in the hands of youth guidance professionals who really care about them. KIDSTOP provides a way for parents to give their kids a quality before- and after-school experience at an affordable price. KIDSTOP gives kids daily opportunities that parents know are vital for their child’s healthy growth.

At KIDSTOP, your child will enjoy engaging activities in 45-minute rotations, including:

  • Gym, outdoor activities & water games
  • Arts & crafts, scrapbooking, fashion cooking & clubs
  • High-yield learning activities & games
  • virtual field trips & CareerSTART exposure opportunities & more
