Leveraging solid partnerships with schools and school districts, The Kids College is the most experienced provider of extended learning science, technology, engineering, art, and math programs (STEaM) in North County San Diego.
With the goal of providing children the opportunity to discover abilities and develop skills needed for their future success, The Kid’s College engages children with hands-on individual and group projects.Children, for example, work in teams to problem-solve in order to build and program a robot, run a business, perform kitchen chemistry, design a group mural, or engineer a cleanup solution for an oil spill.These experiences develop important life skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity required by employers.
Such engaging, hands-on experiences change the life course of children by revealing talents and igniting passions that result in a pursuit of further education and accomplishment.
Successful and growing for 18 years, The Kids College reaches the largest number of children and has the highest quality of STEaM classes of any afterschool enrichment program provider.With base support already provided by regular class fees, The Kids College is now ready to expand to serve the 29,000 North County children from low income families that currently need these programs.
With community and donor support and investments, The Kid’s College Cares program will ensure that these children, who would otherwise never have the opportunity, will be able to gain meaningful and engaging exposure to STEaM subjects and careers, helping them confidently set upon a path to build their future.
