KIDSTOP - Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota

KIDSTOP

KIDSTOP is open for currently registered youth

New registration for School Year 2021-22 KIDSTOP is temporarily CLOSED

Safety is Boys & Girls Club’s #1 priority; therefore, we must temporarily close new registration at all sites, due to a staffing shortage.

Please share Boys & Girls Club’s hiring opportunities with everyone you know on social media, face-to-face, or through text messaging. Go to www.bgcmn.org/careers to apply online today.

Our team is actively recruiting staff using all available platforms and communications channels; however, we continue to experience a workforce shortage much like every other organization in our community. We have closed our waiting list until further notice. We apologize for the difficulties this may cause families. Please know that we are doing everything possible to re-open registration as soon as we can.

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, as well as Athlos Academy. 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

COVID-19 Safety Procedures

COVID-19 Safety Procedures

  • We will be practicing social distancing with kids and will maintain smaller program group sizes to ensure that we are meeting CDC guidelines for health and safety. All programming will be in groups of 15 or fewer and will travel from activity to activity as a group throughout the day.
  • Space at each site may be limited, due to smaller program size requirements.
  • All staff and kids will be required to wear masks. Masks should be washed daily after use. Cloth masks should be machine washable, and we recommend using the sanitize setting on your machine, if available. Exceptions will be made only for those who have a diagnosed medical issue that prevents them from wearing a mask. Masks do not need to be worn during outside programming as long as social distancing is taking place. For more information on CDC recommendations, click here:
  • https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/schools.html
  • https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/children/protect-children.html
  • Temperature and health screenings will be required at check in and after lunch each day of All-day KIDSTOP. Please click here for details and a full list of the precautions Boys & Girls Club is taking to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

COVID-19 Warning & Waiver

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Club cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending the Club could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.

All parents will be required to sign a warning and waiver when they arrive with their child(ren) the first day of attendance.
