Frequently Asked Questions

What ages do you serve?


While our program is geared towards youth ages 6-17, our starting group of youth at IDEA Judson will be selected from the elementary levels. Our Summer Program will be open to youth ages 6-17 with classrooms split into age appropriate groups.




Where will your programs be offered at?


We are currently in the process of starting our program services at IDEA Public Schools - Judson for the 2020-2021 School Year. We are open to discuss opening up locations in churches, schools, or other prospective areas depending on the number of youth projected to be served and available funding. Schools who do not currently receive 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) funding, may be able to apply to help bring our innovative organization to their respective school.




What are your hours of operation for the After School Program?


We are looking to provide services from the time school ends till 6:30pm. When there is early dismissal, we will begin at that time and still close at 6:30pm. However, our goal is to work towards getting approval to stay open till 8pm. This will allow us to provide more programs and give parents more flexibility, time, and less stress. At this time, we will be operating through the IDEA School Calendar, which means if the school is closed (aside from the Summer Program), we will not have services that day(s). Such days could include but not limited to, Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, Spring Break, Teacher In-Service Days, and National Holidays. As we continue to add more sites, some locations may vary in their hours of operation.




What can I do to help?


This is the question we get asked the most and one that we really love to hear. There's several ways that you can help: 1. Donations and Sponsorships are always welcome. We are able to accept donations for programs supplies such as arts/crafts, science, music equipment, gift cards, and monetary contributions that will allow us to increase our software licenses and other uses. 2. Perhaps you know someone or business looking to partner up with a nonprofit organization. You can have them contact us or send us the info (just let them know we'll be calling please). 3. Volunteering opportunities will soon become available as we navigate during this difficult time, however we are open to hear your thoughts on other ways to support our organization and kids.




How is your program different from other after school programs?


Kid Nation, Inc. prides itself in delivering structured programs using a rotation schedule that allows for the kids to participate in the various programs offered. The youth participants will be able to learn valuable life skills that is constantly adapting and improved especially as new issues arise. Our goals are to help them get a head start in their careers through exploration and learning, a boost in their academic performance, service projects to develop character and the means to improve college & job applications, and much much more. If you would like to learn more, please don't hesitate to call or email us at your convenience.




How much does your Program cost?


We are working with each school to determine the best cost for after school and summer programs for their population of families. As we continue to grow, we will identify sources, fundraisers, and donors to help sponsor children who may come from economically disadvantaged homes or perhaps are going through a difficult time.




Can you tell us about your Summer Program?


Unfortunately, the current health crisis facing us now has caused us to temporarily postpone our 2020 summer program. We are of course, looking at what we are able to offer in 2021. But what I can say is, that when we do start up, your child is gonna have lots of fun, learn so much, and possibly make a ton of friends along the way.
