Why Choose Kid Street Learning Center?


Why Choose Kid Street Learning Center?

Kid Street Learning Center was founded in 1992 as an after school theater arts based program. Kid Street expanded into a Santa Rosa City School District Charter School in 1999 for grades K - 6. Since then, we have experienced steady growth and the 2015- 2016 school year includes grades TK - 7. 

We are excited to share that we will be adding 8th grade in 2016-2017 so students can continue to learn in a therapeutic and safe environment during their adolescent years.

Why Choose Kid Street Learning Center?

We have developed a holistic educational model that supports positive behavior, the love of learning and positive emotional development. We strive to find new ways to expand our program offerings. Small class sizes and programs that support the whole child allow us to provide individualized attention based on each student’s needs.

Academic support is provided through our 1:1 tutoring program during the school day and through homework club in our free after-school program. We have a one to one device ratio and have fully embraced the challenging Common Core standards. Enrichment activities include drama, sports, dance, service learning, cooking, science/engineering, art and gardening. 

At Kid Street we believe that our students’ basic needs must be met in order for them to be successful and to learn. In addition to academic and enrichment programs, we provide the following to our students:

• Vision and Dental screenings

• Clothing and shoes through our Kids Kloset program

• School supplies

• Individual counseling and group counseling 

• Parenting classes 

• Healthy breakfast, snacks and lunches

• Food to take home through our Brown Bag program 

• Nutrition education through our Garden Program

• Social/emotional curriculum through the ToolBox Program

• Resource Referrals

The board and staff at Kid Street Learning Center are dedicated to providing support and resources to our families because we know what an important role family plays in a students’ academic and personal success. Our goal for each and every student is for them to meet their individual potential within the context of their family’s well-being.

Our school motto, Teach to the Heart and the Mind will Follow, has guided us for over 20 years.
