Kid Ventures is a school-age care program operated through Community Education with Northfield Public Schools. The mission of Kid Ventures is to provide care for school-age children in a safe, enriching environment that supports the individual needs of children and families while building positive relationships. Throughout Kid Ventures, children will participate in a variety of hands-on activities that build social, emotional, physical, and academic development. Kid Ventures is offered at all elementary schools from 6:30 am- school start and until 6:00 pm after school ends, Monday through Friday. Kid Ventures is also open at one location in the summer and on most non-school days.
