KidZone is a state certified Keystone Stars program that provides affordable, educational after-school care for students in Kindergarten to 8th grade.

Due to the School District of Philadelphia’s decision to start the first marking period of the 2020-2021 school year as a fully virtual program, North Light Community Center has made the decision to offer full day care. Specialized tutoring is available and both breakfast and lunch are provided. We support virtual learning from 7:30am to 3pm at our location for students who are enrolled in one of the following schools: Cook-Wissahickon, Dobson, Shawmont and Greenwoods Charter.

We will also be providing afterschool care which will run from 3pm to 6pm daily. Afterschool care will include homework help, snack as we well as recreational, arts and crafts and educational activities. We will be serving children from the schools listed above as well as Roxborough Christian. Children from Roxborough Christian will be picked up by North Light staff in our vans each day.

Program costs:
Full Day Care: $40/day
Afterschool Care: $25/day

*Childcare subsidies and financial aid are available upon request for those who qualify. Please contact Renee with any questions.
