About the Provider

Description: Kids World Before and After-School programs strives to support the needs of children and families, through strong partnerships with families, schools, and communities together providing academic, recreational and social opportunities that enhance school day learning and build upon individual strengths and interests necessary for lifelong success. Our programs focus on individual strengths and needs of each child in our care and aims to provide engaging and enriching activities for children in all areas of development – social, emotional, cognitive, language and physical development.

Kids World provides year-round after-school, school vacation and summer programming at the YWCA and after-school in the Elmira, Elmira Heights, Horseheads, and Spencer Van Etten School Districts. The program is open on weekdays year-round from school dismissal until 6pm, allowing parents to work, search for work, and/or pursue job training and education.

Kids World believes that enthusiasm and success in out-of-school time environments can transfer into academic achievements and new skills that lead to life-long success. The schedule at Kids World includes a variety of opportunities that are child directed and success-oriented and offer choices that enhance both learning and social opportunities. With a one to ten ratio, the environment is arranged to accommodate children individually, in small and large group activities.

Each day offers a chance to explore, interact with friends, and acquire new skills. Snacks, enrichment activities, active play and homework centers for children are incorporated into the daily programming. Enrichment classes are designed to excite children about learning and actively engage them.

In all activities, Kids World staff members teach and model the skills necessary to develop new and positive relationships, resolve conflicts peacefully, and empower children to use their strengths and discover new talents. Our staff-child relationships are built upon warm and caring interactions that value each child as a unique individual and focus on helping them to reach their full potential.
