    Program Description

    Johnson County Park and Recreation District is committed to providing families with quality school age programs at an affordable cost.  Our staff is dedicated to providing children with what they need: a safe, enriching, and fun place to be.  Each program site values the unique nature of children by offering a variety of group and self-selected activities.  Choices offered include physical activities, games, and social time as well as creative arts and quiet time for homework, reading, or relaxing.  Programs also seek to include special projects, field trips, parties, and other activities based upon the interests of the children enrolled.  Our unique multi-age group setting allows children to experience opportunities in both peer mentoring and modeling.  Children are encouraged to be responsible decision makers who work well in communities.  The availability of this program within your child’s school provides enhanced safety, convenience, and numerous opportunities to extend school day learning experiences.
