MISSION of the Sioux Falls School District
"To educate and prepare each student to
succeed in a changing world."
Kids Inc., a
division of the Curriculum Services department of the Sioux Falls
School District, provides after school enrichment at all Sioux Falls
School District Elementary Schools.
Kids Inc. provides a safe setting with embedded learning for
children kindergarten through fifth grade during after school
hours until 6:00 pm. This program is designed for children who
will benefit from enrichment activities in groups with a 15 to 1
ratio. We are happy to make reasonable accommodations for
children as long as we are able to maintain our 15 to 1 staffing
Our enrichment program strives to be fun, challenging, and
inviting and to use innovative ideas and activities to promote
children’s learning. The program is conducted and planned by a
staff trained to meet the needs of children and to provide
positive adult role models.

2016/17 School Year Enrollment Process
Jan 19-Feb 19, 2016 - Current
Families will have opportunity to re-enroll. Forms
will be handed out to current Kids Inc. families
only starting Tuesday, January 19th at your child's
Kids Inc. site. More information will be included
with the form.
Families on the 2015/16
school year waiting list will receive an e-mail
mid-February they will need to respond to if they
are interested in enrollment for the 2016/17 school
year. Waiting list families that respond will be put
into a lottery drawing for any spaces left for
2016/17 school year or placement on the upcoming
school year waiting list if all spots are full.
If you have a child who will
be starting Kindergarten for the 2016/17 school year
we ask that you attend Kindergarten Registration at
your child's school which for most schools will be
Thursday, March 31, 2016. Make sure to stop at the
Kids Inc. table and see a staff member. For most
schools you will provide your contact information at
the Kids Inc. table and that will put you into our
lottery drawing along with current waiting list
families for any open spots for the upcoming school
year or for waiting list placement for the 2016/17
Lottery Drawing will take
place Monday, April 4, 2016 and families will be
notified by e-mail no later than Friday, April 8
with their status.
Anyone else in the school
district who did not fall into any of the above
categories will be able to check availability and
enroll if space is still available starting April 6,
Thank you for your
understanding with our lengthy enrollment process explanation. We
want to do our best to give every family an equal opportunity to
enroll in Kids Inc. but please understand we are extremely limited
with the amount of children we can take at each school based on
areas we have to utilize after school and amount of staff available
to work at all of our locations. We welcome any and all feedback.
