Creative Kids Adventures is an afterschool program serving 3 elementary schools in the Hartford school district. We provide after school care for children in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Our mission is to create a warm, welcoming and positive environment for children after school and during no school days. We have a strong belief in children exploring the natural environment outside their school as well as leading various games and activities based on the interests of the children enrolled. In the summer we offer a 10 week summer program taking children on field trips throughout our local area.
