During the school year, Kids Company follows the MISD school calendar. In other words, when school is closed so is Kids Company. During the summer we are open for seven to eight weeks. The start and end dates are determined during the spring before summer registration once the school calendar is finalized.

Linda Metz supervises both programs along with two onsite Managers - Mary Ann Armstrong at Murray Elementary School and Jillian Pino at Murray Middle School.

Any child who is enrolled at Murray Elementary (K-3) or Murray Middle (4-8) can attend Kid's Company. Summer participants must have completed their first year of school. The summer before a child enters 4th grade the child will make the transition from Murray Elementary to Murray Middle. A registration form and fee is required for each session.

The required registration fee is $35 per family during the school year and $30 per family during the summer. Daily fees can be paid weekly or on the 15th/30th of each month. Price information is listed in the Parent Handbook. During the summer there are additional fees for field trips and pool trips that pays for transportation and admission.

Each week are organized activities, opportunities for children in 2nd – 8th grade to work on homework, and plenty of time to play. There are special activities that take place during the summer such as trips to the city pool and field trips. During the school year, a nutritional snack is provided every day. In the summer, breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided.
