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 ratio.

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 school year.
  • 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, 2016.

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. Please feel free to e-mail Abby.Wheeler@k12.sd.us or call 367-4424.
