Kidz Around

Hang tight.  Information for the 2021-2022 school year is coming soon!

KIDZ Around is a school-age child care service designed especially for the children of working parents in Cleveland County Schools. The program provides supervised enrichment and recreational activities for students.

During normal operation, KIDZ Around operates according to the school calendar on Mondays through Fridays from the end of the school day until 6 p.m. If a site is closed, parents may place a child in another site that is open. Centers are closed on Veteran's Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving (two days), Christmas (three days), New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Holiday, and Easter (one or two days depending on the calendar year).

Before-School Care is also available at some of our schools from 6:30 a.m. until the bell rings for ($3.00 per child per day if enrolled in the after-school program or $4.00 per child per day if not enrolled in the after-school program).

Before- and after-school summer care programs are not available for pre-k students.

Teacher workdays
A site in each zone will operate from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. In the event of a planning day with 15 children signed up at Washington, Fallston, Union, Jefferson, Township Three, we will open at Shelby Intermediate as the care service center. If 15 children are signed up at Springmore and Boiling Springs, we will open at only one of those two locations. If 15 students sign up at  Bethware, we will operate Kidz Around at Bethware School. If we are open at any of the three locations, you will be charged for a full week.  During the weeks of Christmas and Easter, if we have 15 children from all schools signed up, we will only be open at Shelby Intermediate.

School Closings, Delays, and/or Early Dismissals
If the schools are closed due to inclement weather the After School program will be closed as well. Also if school is dismissed early due to inclement weather there will be no After School. If the school operates on a two-hour delay our Before School Care will also open two hours later and would open at 8:30 a.m instead of 6:30 a.m.
