It is with great sadness we deliver the news that Kids Club will be closing its doors June 2, 2020 at 5:30 pm. Kids Club has struggled financially for many years in spite of working diligently to overcome our deficit. Unlike most of Community Connection’s programs, Kids Club does not have a dedicated funding stream and is dependent on grants from large foundations. These grant are very competitive and many of our large, long-time grantors have turned us down in recent years. Unfortunately, the financial support that is needed to continue this vital program is not available.
As we are announcing the closure of Kids Club, we are leaving open the possibility of a new opportunity presenting itself. If we are able to find the funding that Kids Club needs to continue operating, we will make adjustments to this plan for closure, keeping you informed every step of the way.
Our goal is to give you and your children the security of appropriate daycare through the end of school year. We understand the importance of giving your family ample notice to make this transition and we hope that you continue at Kids Club until its closure on June 2, 2020.
We have been honored to care for your children and many others over the last 25 years. We care deeply for all our children and families and regret that circumstances have left us with this very difficult choice. Thank you for your support. We wish you well with your future childcare needs.

Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)
Discover Summer Meals!
During the school year, 21 million children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch. But when school is out, many of the children relying on these school meals, go hungry. Summer Meal Programs help close that gap. Summer Meals give children the nutrition they need so they are ready to learn when they return to school
The SFSP program offers a free, nutritional lunch to children 1 – 18 years of age during the summer months. Adults may eat with children for $4.00 per meal. Entrees are served with vegetable, fruit, milk, and salad bar.
