Kids Connection Before and After School Child Care

Kids Connection (KC) is licensed by the Department of Human Services to provide great child care for students enrolled at Holy Trinity in three-year-old preschool until age 12. KC is here for the convenience of Holy Trinity households that need “wrap care” before and after school. With a well-trained staff at the ready, we engage in gym games, STEM-focused lessons, and activities planned for various ages. KC is a place for kids to form long-lasting relationships and express their true personalities freely, confidently, and comfortably.

Scheduling for 2023/2024

Before School (A.M.)

KC is open Monday through Friday starting at 6:30 a.m. in the school gym. While a school breakfast is not provided, students are welcome to bring something light to eat. Items from fast food restaurants and soda are not allowed. KC staff will dismiss children to go to class at 8 a.m. Students are not allowed in the school unsupervised until 7:50 a.m. Students that arrive at school before 7:50 a.m. are sent to KC and charged a drop-in fee.

After School (P.M.)

KC opens when class is dismissed at 3:20 p.m., and stays open until 5:45 p.m. Students enter the Social Room to have a snack (provided by KC), then students are divided into groups based on age. Groups rotate through activities throughout the building. Younger groups always have at least two staff members present. Older groups have time devoted to completing their homework each afternoon.

School Closures

On days when school is not in session, KC may offer a full day or a partial day of childcare, depending on the reason for school closure. See the schedule below.

Payment and Fees for 2023/2024

KC uses FACTS Tuition Management for online billing. This is the same tool used to collect school tuition and fees. Additional payment options include monthly automatic withdrawal (ACH) and direct payment to the Director of Kids Connection. Payments are due monthly. Failure to make payments on time results in a $15 late fee per month and students may not be allowed to attend KC until the balance is paid in full.

Students attending KC four or five days per week are considered full-time. Students attending KC three or fewer days per week are considered part-time. Fees are listed as monthly amounts. Rates posted here are for informational purposes only. Registration for KC must be completed separately before the start of the 2023/2024 school year. KC is billed separately from tuition, and an indication of need does not guarantee placement.

Three-year-old Preschool Rates

Four-year-old Pre-Kindergarten through Age 12 Rates

Drop-in and School Closure Fees

Drop-ins require prior approval from the KC Director. An additional fee is assessed to attend KC when school is not in session. Fees are listed as daily amounts.

Summer Kids Connection 2023

Summer KC is available for enrolled Holy Trinity Students entering class in the fall. Students must be three years old on or before June 1, 2022, and registered for PS3 or PK4. Summer hours are Monday through Friday from 6:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Students attending Summer KC four or five days per week are considered full-time. Students attending Summer KC three or fewer days per week are considered part-time. Fees are listed as weekly amounts.


As most preschool and pre-K students are newly toilet trained, we do expect accidents and therefore ask that an extra change of clothes is left at school for such times. Students are supervised when they leave the room to use the restroom. If a student experiences difficulty toileting (persistent accidents, unable to wipe), parents and guardians will be notified and a meeting with the Director of KC or Site Supervisor will be scheduled to create a plan to help the student be successful with using the restroom.


Our team of staff is here to care for your child. To do this to the best of our ability, it is important to have an open line of communication between staff, parents, and guardians. Staff will communicate with parents and guardians face-to-face, via email, phone, bulletin boards, and more! Follow us on Facebook to see KC in action!
