About the Provider

Description: Our Character Kids after-school program is receiving rave reviews... and it's not too late to enroll your child! Character Kids is housed at our parent church, First Christian Church of Bentonville.We offer a safe, fun, loving environment for elementary and middle school kids every day from 3:00-6:00pm.Character Kids offers transportation from every public school in the Bentonville Public School system, with the lone exception of Cooper Elementary in Bella Vista (and we hope to add that soon). Kids are then brought back to the church, where they enjoy a snack and a short time for free time before sitting down to do their homework. Most kids have their homework completed before they get home. After doing their homework, they have more time to play games, read, enjoy our playground, etc.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

About 3 years ago I became a Character Kid, normal kids didn't want to go, but after a while i wanted to go and got devastated when I didn't, now I'm wanting to become part of the faculty, this place has made a huge impact on my life. Would highly suggest bringing your kids here!
