About Wicked Cool for Kids
Wicked Cool for Kids is a small, local, woman-owned business providing customized on-site enrichment programs for kids in K-5th for over ten years. We work with recreation departments, schools, home schooled groups and other community-based organizations to provide high quality experiences that are both affordable and educational. Our programs are frequently parent-paid but can be supplemented with grant funds. We offer complete hands-on STEAM-based programs that extend learning beyond the school day and beyond the school year. Our programs challenge kids to investigate their world through science, art, and technology.
We base our programs on three fundamental principles: learning, fun, and safety. Our curriculum is structured around an experiential environment aligned to national educational standards where we engage kids in a range of challenging activities.
We encourage our staff to be kid-centered rather than curriculum-centered. Kids learn at their own pace and investigate freely.
This helps to keep them constantly stimulated and on task while in their own comfort zone.
