Developed specifically for the school-aged child, KASPER provides care for children attending District 54 elementary schools. The KASPER program gives children a safe space before and after school to explore new opportunities, learn new skills, make meaningful friendships and test their creativity and imagination. Our staff is committed to creating a nurturing community that supports each child’s individuality and unique interests. Safety and supervision are essential components of our program.
Activities include arts and crafts, sports, games, creative play, outdoor recreation and more. A quiet area is provided for children who wish to do homework. Morning care is from 7 a.m. until the start of school. Afternoon care is from the end of school until 6 p.m..
We offer AM and PM care at Aldrin, Blackwell, Campanelli, Churchill, Collins, Dirksen, Dooley, Enders-Salk, Hale, Hoover and Nerge. Space is limited to 60 children per day, per school. If your child's base school as it maximum capacity for PM KASPER, we will transport your child from their base school to the Community Recreation Center, Meineke Recreation Center or The Sport Center.
