There are still openings at the Kids House in Richmond for Summer Camp. April has lots of great activities planned like swimming, art and lots of fun field trips. If you are looking for a wonderful place for your child this summer you should absolutely give April a call and check her place out.

Re: After-care at Mira Vista
April Jorden runs an after-school program out of her house that serves children from Mira Vista. It is called The Kids House. You can reach her at 510-237-2870. April picks the kids up from school in her big van and brings them back to a well run, fun environment. Call her to schedule a visit and see for yourself. Allison

We have not used the school's afterschool program, but have a son at Mira Vista in third grade and a kindergartener-to-be next fall. Both will attend April Jorden's The Kids House for their after school hours. My son has been there since first grade and I can highly recommend April's program. She picks kids up in her passenger van and returns them to her house each day, which in and of itself is a lifesaver. Her program operates out of her home...and it feels much like the house in the neighborhood where kids just like to hang out. She has a great art room, tons of books and games, a back yard that's very kid-friendly and the ever-popular air hockey table. There's no screen time, but a quiet time for homework begins at 5:00. She is warm without being a pushover, creates an environment of respect and boundaries without being rigid and gives great hugs. You can contact her at 237.2870. Give her a call! Lisa

When our son started at Mira Vista, the after school enrichment program hadn't yet begun. We found the ''Kids' House,'' instead which is run by a wonderful woman named April Jordan. April primarily cares for kids who attend Mira Vista. She is licensed to take care of 14 kids in her home and has staff to assist. Our son really loves being at the Kids' House and sometimes it is a bit of a struggle getting him to leave at the end of the day. If you are interested about details, please feel free to e-mail me. Hope you find the right place for your child. Debora
