Kids-SmART, Inc. is a company founded on the vision that every child deserves the opportunity to grow and thrive in a safe and nurturing environment. They deserve an environment where they are encouraged to discover themselves and are able to develop to their full potential. Kids-SmART also believes in a holistic approach where we feel open communication is important between the Kids-SmART staff, the child's parents, their teachers, and the school administration to ensure the common goal of each child's success in their educational growth. Kids-SmART provides these first-rate programs at a fee that is extremely affordable, and offers various discounts and payment programs for those who cannot otherwise afford it.
Kids SmART, Inc. provides care for children ages 3-14 years old before and after school, on most full days and throughout the summer. Our Before and After School programs are located directly at the elementary school. Full day and summer camp programs may be offered at a nearby program/school location. Our program activities encompass the 40 Developmental Assets. We offer a variety of choices that are safe and fun for each child and offer the opportunity for positive growth and learning at every turn. All of our programs are licensed by the State of Colorado’s Department of Human Services. We follow all of the states guidelines and requirements and go above and beyond them to ensure a program of the highest quality.
Kids SmART, Inc. welcomes all children enrolled in the school and within licensed age range to participate in our program. We also welcome other children that fall within the licensed age range to participate in the program, although we do not provide transportation to and from our program location. All children must comply with the rules of the program and may be dismissed without notice if they do not follow these rules. Children with special needs are welcome and our staff will do what we can within our licensed ability to make the necessary accommodations to provide adequate care for these children in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act and within the specifications of our licensure.
Each of the Kids SmART, Inc. staff goes through an extensive process in order to join the Kids SmART team. They all must pass a background check, CBI and FBI fingerprint screenings, and an extensive interview process to ensure that they are equipped with the necessary skills to properly care for your children. The Directors must have a Bachelor’s Degree with a child/adolescent emphasis, or have adequate relevant experience to substitute.
