Kids Corner is the division of Ivy Bound that serves students ages 5-11 with after-school and summer activities at school or home. Schools can enlist Kids Corner instructors to arrive in the afternoon and teach for 45 minutes to two hours.  The goal is “Fun and Learning”.

Schools can have parents pay for their desired activities directly. Better still is when schools collect payment themselves. Schools can use Kids Corner as a mild fund-raiser and simultaneously cut out some of the paperwork required by after-school staffers. Kids Corner does background screens on all instructors, and trains them on general security/safety issues. The school can then give the arriving instructors specific instruction for situational care. Parents who wish to give wholesome activities that the school does not currently provide should contact Kids Corner. Where the best venue after school is back HOME, parents can enlist a Kids Corner instructor for similar activities. We can work with fewer restrictions, and run to as late as 7pm.

Schools enlist Kids Corner for activities like:

  • Lego
  • Robotics
  • Jewelry-Making
  • Sports-of-All-Sorts
  • Flip-Cam Film Making
  • Chess
  • Fun Science
  • Reading
  • “Math-e-tarium”
  • Nature/Outdoor Explorations
  • Book-of-the-Month (children make a hardcover of their own)
  • Forensics/Private Detective Investigations
  • Dance
  • Beginning Guitar (and other instruments)
  • Anatomy (Animal and Human)
  • Practical Math
  • Beginning Chinese
  • Magic (children learn tricks and perform for parents & friends)

Kids Corner is available in the Summer too!

Here we can add activities like:

  • Ultimate Frisbee/Frisbee Golf
  • Beginning Tennis
  • Softball
  • Soccer
  • Beginning Golf
  • Gymnastics
  • “Pool and School” (study and safe play)

Kids Corner typically runs these 1x a week for 5 – 6 weeks, or daily for one week Monday through Friday.  Summer sessions are typically longer: 3 – 4 hours, allowing parents to work while the students have a camp-like experience.

Students can enlist for a three-week PROGRESSION such as:

8:30 – 11:30 “lunch” 2:00 – 5:00
Week One Beginning Guitar Pool & School Gymnastics
Week Two “Math-e-tarium” lunch/self-study/nap Chess
Week Three Outdoor Explorations lunch/nap Robotics

 

Finally, Kids Corner offers weekend activities. 
All of the above can be done of Saturdays or Sundays.  Those not wanting a long series can have Kids Corner come for a one-time event.  Kids Corner helps parents with:

  • Birthday Parties
  • Magic Shows
  • “Spa Parties”
  • Jewelry-Making Parties
  • Princess / Superhero Parties

Ivy Bound / Kids Corner welcomes helping you develop your children with stimulating, cerebral fun.
