KidKare/School Age Care

KidKare 2012

KidKare is a child care program for children age 3 through 13.  KidKare provides children a safe, fun experience during the hours before and/or after school. KidKare sites are located in the following BHM school buildings;  Discovery Center, Northwinds Elementary, Tatanka Elementary, Hanover Elementary and Montrose Elementary.  The Discovery Center site serves Discovery and Parkside students. Discovery and Northwinds serve preschool children ages 3-5 also.  The KidKare program strives to compliment both the home and school experience of each child.  KidKare cannot, and will not, discriminate against any child or family on the basis of race, creed, gender, or disability.  KidKare is open year-round, except for major holidays.

Link to Registration program - to register, make changes to your contract, or to make a payment.

New Policy Change:   KidKare WILL REMAIN OPEN on snow days (in exteme conditions this may be not be possible - messages would go out with the district phone calls).  When school is a late start or early release due to weather, KidKare will be open. On early release days we will be open until the last child is picked up.  We just ask you as parents to use your best judgement to pick up your child/ren as soon as possible.
