Kindergarten – 5th Grade Program

We promote safe, healthy fun in a creative environment for children in Kindergarten-5th grade who reside in Burlington.

New Information posted October 13 – Tentative Plans:

  • The week of October 19th, full day programming continued for students in grades 3rd – 5th. No programming for students in grades Kindergarten – 2nd.  
  • Starting the week of October 26,  students in grades Kindergarten – 5th enrolled in the Afterschool program will attend Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3:00 – 5:30 pm.
  • Wednesday hours will be 8:00 am. – 3:00 pm.

What will a typical day in K-5th Program look like?

  • All children will be asked to wear a mask while inside King Street Center’s building except for when they are eating. They will have their temperature checked upon arrival and a responsible adult will be asked to respond to health-related questions daily.
  • A meal & snack will be provided each day through our partnership with Burlington School Food Project. Children may bring their own lunch if they would prefer.
  • We are committed to supporting students in their remote learning class appointments! We will also support kids in completing homework when they are not learning online. Typically students have access to both staff and volunteer tutor help. However, we are not inviting volunteers into the building at this time, so if remote support is needed, it will be provided. Remote learning isn’t easy. If kids are struggling, we will attempt to be in touch with their teachers and provide alternative learning options.
  • All learners will also have access to enrichment activities at King Street Center. Options include arts and crafts, games, outdoor and indoor play, constructive and dramatic play, exploring nature, and science activities. All activities will be conducted with physical distancing in mind. Normally we collaborate with many community partners to enhance our programming, such as Burlington City Arts, Audubon Vermont, Kids on the Ball Tennis, ECHO, the Flynn Center, and Friends for A-Dog. If health safety allows, we will likely continue to engage in some small group activities outdoors.
  • Students should expect that lessons focused on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion will be part of their learning experience.
  • Kids in our K-5th Program are also eligible to be matched with an adult mentor, as available. These pairs meet weekly, either in person or virtually, enjoying local community adventures.


Our 5 STAR licensed K-5th program will run 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. or 3 – 5:30 p.m.
