About Us


Since 1999, the Sherman United Methodist Church has been providing quality faith based after-school programming for kindergarten through fifth grades in the Sherman community.

Building Faith, Friends, and Futures

Kids Place was founded on the principle of providing a safe God-centered environment in which kids could learn and have fun. It is our prayer that the children will gain a deeper understanding of God's love for them and experience frienships that will last a lifetime.

Staff/Hours/Tuition

We are proud of our staff, who are all certified in cpr and first aid. The staff is also involved in continuing education both on-site and off-site through out the year. On going training keeps ideas fresh and the children safe, happy, and interested. The ratio of staff to children is 1:10. The hours that Kids Place operates are 3pm to 6pm, Monday through Friday. The program is closed on holidays when school is not in session. Kids Place opens early for early dismissal days. Tution per child is $60 per week, with a charge of $55 for the second and any additional child in a family. Part-time care is available on a limited basis, with care costing $13 per day. Part-time care must be pre-arranged and is not available as drop by care.

Programming

The days at Kids Place are full of activity. Each day at Kids Place begins with free time, in which the children may choose what they wish to participate in. Snacks, homework room, gym, outdoor playground, and a center based room are the available choices. After 4:00 the children progress to an organized activity, which generally lasts 30 minutes. Organized activites vary and include Bible study, clubs, class time, and long-term projects. Electives are also available at the progam and include piano lessons, kung fu lessons, and tutoring. All of the electives require a fee and are payable to the elective teachers, not Kids Place.
