About Us

Kids Play is a quality, extended day childcare program that is a well-supervised environment where children can develop physical, social and emotional skills. We provide your child with a wide variety of activities that enrich their learning, encourage friendships and provide opportunities for exploration.

Kids Play is sponsored by St. Michael-Albertville Community Education.

Kids Play is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. We offer school year and summer programs including most no school days, Winter & Spring Break.
