Accessible straight from school on the bus, or along the community walking paths, the Cimarron Kidspace offers a mix of activities which help expand children’s experiences, gets them active and connects them to the community and caring adults. Art and dance programs encourage expressiveness and help build a sense of technical mastery. Children learn about the nutritive value of foods, then prepare their own healthy snacks during weekly nutrition classes. Kids can curl up with a book from the mini-library, or sit down at the technology stations or Lego table for more self-directed activities. Our quiet room enables children to get homework help from staff or volunteers. Kids burn energy during on the playground or our backyard field. Kidspace field trips expose kids to local history and culture and natural areas, as well as fun places like the water park. Cimarron children have most often reported that their program experiences have enabled them to learn new things, make new friends and get along better with their peers.
