KIDS Childcare

DeWitt Public Schools offers licensed before-school and after-school childcare to students in the district for ages 3 years to 5th grade. The program, organized by DeWitt Community Education, provides quality childcare by licensed staff.

Enrollment is open throughout the school year, space permitting, and is currently working from a wait list. Our State of Michigan Licensed program will keep your child learning and having fun at the same time!

UPDATE: Due to the high number of current family registrants, there will be no open enrollment period for the K.I.D.S. Program. As space becomes available we will work from the wait list to enroll new families. Currently the state of Michigan licensing capacity for the program has been reached. Current family fall registration will begin June 3rd.

A waiting list is available for interested families. Please contact the Community Education office for further details and/or to be placed on this list.

Please remember Wednesday May 15th is CLT day!

Remember Friday May 24th is the start of Memorial Day weekend, KIDS is closed!
