There is a 1 day minimum charge per child each week.*


Drop in rate will be the regular rate plus $5 per family. Drop-in participants are not eligible for field trips.  NOTE: Drop-in participation is only available as space permits, so you will need to call before coming.

*Late Pick Up or Early Drop Off Fee: $10 per child if the parent picks child up after 6pm or drops off before 6am. If a family has 3 late pickups or early drop offs they will be asked to make other arrangements for care.


Summer programming includes supervised care, field trips, trips to the public pool & library, and two snacks per day (if here during scheduled snack times). During the summer, we will be doing activities that promote learning as well as physical activities through games and outdoor & indoor play.

Kidz Club staff will be taking kids going into Kindergarten and kids going into 3rd grade and above to the pool Mondays and Wednesdays 1pm-3pm. We will then take kids going into 1st and 2nd grade kids to the pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We cannot change days for families.

There will be a permission slip available in the room the first week of summer that parents will need to fill out for Kidz Club. Parents need to sign Pool Agreement in order for students to be able to participate (forms located in the Kidz Club room near the computer when summer starts). We also suggest that kids bring their swim suits and towels daily for water games at Kidz Club.


PEM Kidz Club staff will accompany kids to and from activities in the K-3 and 9-12 buildings. Please note all activities on your bi-weekly calendar. We cannot ensure children making it to activities unless it is stated on the child’s schedule. Parents will need to make arrangements for other activities. The Hiawathaland Transit Bus will transport students for an additional fee; or if you would like your child to walk by themselves please fill out a Child Walker Permission Form. We are planning on walking kids to one session of swimming lessons at the public pool. As soon as there is a schedule for lessons we will let you know what session and times we are planning.


Permission Slips Due/Field Trip Days are as follows:

June 14th for Oxbow Park June 29th

July 5th for MN Zoo July 20th

July 26th for Under Water World at MOA August 10th 

*Please note that turning in a permission slip you will be billed for your child/ren for a regular day charge whether they attend or not.*

Kidz Club will not be open for those children who do not wish to participate in the field trips. Permission slips for all field trips must be turned in by the due date in order for your child to participate. There are no extra costs for your child to attend field trips, but each child should bring a sack lunch and wear tennis shoes on field trip days. We also ask that children are here 15-20 minutes before departure time to get into our groups and put on Kidz Club shirts.

Bennett’s Food Center will be catering a lunch 3 times a month. We are very excited to be able to bring this to you at no extra cost! You will need to indicate on your schedule how many children attending will be eating the lunch. If you think your child will need more food you are welcome to send some. We also need families to send a drink for the children. *For children with allergies parents should talk to Clarisa. Children can still bring their own lunch on these days if they are not interested.



1. Your child needs to bring a sack lunch daily – we have refrigerators available.

2. Your child needs to have tennis shoes.

3. Your child needs to bring sunscreen each day or you may keep a bottle on site. There will be a charge if child does not have any.

4. Your child can bring a blanket or towel for rest time.

5. If your child needs more to eat than the two provided snacks per day, then you may pack an additional healthy snack for them to eat. They will need to let staff know before eating it because we do have allergies in the program.

6. If your child will be going to the pool, they will need to bring swim wear and towel each day.  To prevent mold, etc. wet suits, towels, and clothing cannot be left in lockers!

7. We ask that your child have an extra change of clothes in their locker in case of an accident or spill.


**For more information on billing, policies, procedures, etc., please refer to the Parent Handbook.**

We look forward to a fun summer! If you have any questions, please contact me.
