Kids’ Safari offers a before and after school program for children attending either Taylor Prairie, Cottage Grove Elementary Schools or Glacial Drumlin 5th Grade in Cottage Grove. Children in the before school program are transported by Kids’ Safari’s small busses whereas children in the after school program are transported by a contracted school bus from the Monona Grove School District.
The after school program engages children in a well-planned curriculum that provides child choice activities, small and large group experiences, outdoor play as well as opportunities to expand learning in science, technologies, engineering and math. The curriculum follows the Wisconsin Afterschool Network (WAN) to be the framework for school age programming.
