Kids Club

About Kids Club

Holly Pond School’s “Kids Club” is an ideal after-school program for children of active and working parents. Kids Club is a state-licensed program designed for children age 3 through 5th grade. Participating children can ride the “Y Bus” directly from their Darien school to the Kids Club program held at the Darien YMCA. There they are met by the Kids Club staff who create a supportive environment for after-school fun. Children may stay as late
as 6:30 PM.

Our goals are to promote self-confidence and social growth through daily projects and team activities and to encourage responsibility among children, for example, in carefully completing their homework. Children of
similar ages are placed in small groups. Depending on the age of the children in the group, typical activities include homework time, indoor/outdoor games, snacks, arts and crafts, swimming, cooking, and special events. Whether in the pool or the classroom, Kids Club incorporates the national YMCA’s values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility in its curriculum.

Kids Club follows the Darien public school calendar. The program operates during early dismissal time and
conference days. We welcome children of all abilities.
