Gilder After School Program

Kids Can is thrilled to provide after school programming at Gilder Elementary School. This program is a 21st Century Community Learning Center (CLC) and serves kids from Kindergarten to 6th grade. Students enjoy a wide variety of activities each day including a warm meal, homework help, physical activities in the gym and on the playground, and access to Kids Can STEMsmart programming via exceptional community providers and activities developed by our highly skilled staff. Kids Can takes pride in supporting academics while increasing youth access to positive adult relationships.

There is a tremendous partnership with the Gilder teachers and administration and the program works closely to provide activities such as tutoring, family nights, and non-school day events.
