Kids Club All Day @ the J
Kids Club All Day is a program created to support our families during this uncertain time by providing a place for children to distance learn with supervision in a safe and nurturing environment.
Please contact the Youth & Camp Department to register.
Kids Club All Day will run based on local school district decisions regarding the resumption of in-person teaching, the program will be extended to meet the needs of our families with children in Grades K-5.
Children must bring their own device, a schedule of daily assignments, all specific distance learning instructions, and a bag lunch.
Our counselors will be equipped to help children access their assignments, guide them through their workload, and provide opportunities for small group socialization activities and brain-breaks throughout the day to keep your child motivated.
Using the same strategies that our camp program applied this summer, we will promote physical distancing when possible, mask-wearing when in common areas, and frequent sanitizing of facilities, on top of adhering to State, Local and CDC guidelines

What are the policies regarding sick children?
KCAD will continue to follow guidelines, based on recommendations from the CDC, Texas State Childcare Licensing, and San Antonio Metro Health. For the health and safety of all, sick children and staff must stay home until they are symptom-free.
If a child or family member comes in contact with a person who has Covid-19 or suspected Covid-19, please keep the child at home and notify our office immediately.
The family should self-isolate for 14 days from the last day that the person was in contact with the sick individual.
If a child or family member has any of the following, the child may NOT be in attendance:
☉Fever of 100.4 or above
☉Cough, runny nose, shortness of breath or other symptoms of respiratory infection
☉If a child becomes ill during the day, they will be isolated from others and expected to be picked up quickly. If symptoms continue or worsen CDC advises you to contact your health care provider.
☉Exposure to someone who has a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19
In order for a sick child to return to the program:
The child must be fever free 72 hours without use of fever-reducing medication
