What are we?
Kids Korner is a developmental child experience where children can learn while they play. Children have an opportunity for social, emotional, physical and mental development in a nurturing environment. Activities are individual and age appropriate.
In 1988 the Kids Korner Program opened for 15 pre-schoolers at Burr Park for its summer day camp program. The program is planned for children ages 3.5 to pre-kindergarten. It was designed to provide the child an enjoyable, safe and fun experience. Children are encouraged to develop a wide variety of skills. Today the program has evolved and services 35 children per week either; half day, full day or extended day.
Kids Korner is located at Burr Park on Waverley Avenue in Newton Corner. DIRECTIONS: Washington St., east. Right on Park St., (follow signs for Brighton). Left on Tremont St. and at set of lights, right on Waverley Ave. Burr Park is the third block on the right.
The Kids Korner Staff is comprised of professional, men and women, college and high school students. Staff is trained in CPR and Standard First Aid. A staff ratio of one staff member for every four children will be maintained.
