Kids Day Off

We have a long tradition of serving Lincoln with quality supervised play for children and youth. We believe supervised, safe, fun, and meaningful out-of-school time opportunities are as important as ever. Our programs are supervised by caring professionals who promote positive environments, supportive relationships, and constructive activities to meet the developmental needs of children and youth.

Kids Day Off are fun play days during the school year when some Lincoln Public Schools are not in session. Registration for Kids Day Off will begin in mid-September of that school year. Programming during spring break is offered at both locations, please note that registration for each day of attendance.

Fees: Kids Day Off: $33
