Your child must be at least five years old to attend KidsArts. For our summer program we require children to be five years old by January 1 of 2018. We are unable due to our license to except children under the age of five. If we suspect that you have enrolled a child under the age of five we may ask for copies of the child's immunization or birth certificate.
Children must be registered for a minimum of two days per week and can register for up to five.
