What will my children be doing?
A full, well balanced dinner is always provided. The different ages are divided up as seen below:
0 – 1 year olds
Nursery Room Please bring a diaper bag with all the needed items for your child, and be prepared for a brief meeting with the nursery staff to go over your child’s needs/routine.
2 – 3 year olds
Toddler Room Please bring a diaper bag with all the needed items for your child. Your toddlers will enjoy snack, free play, guided activities, and dinner.
4 – 5 year olds
Pre-School Room Our Pre-School staff design a unique, age-focused curriculum for each event: a mix of snack times, down times, active movement, simple crafts, and free play
6 – 12 year olds
Rotating Groups School age children will be split up into 4 age groups and rotate through stations. Science experiments, snacks, special guests, and sports are just some of the fun your kids will enjoy.
13 – 17 year olds
Teen Group Teens get to enjoy their own special curriculum. Generally the teens will go out into the community, hiking, or have a special guest at each Fundango.
Kids at Heart has hired special staff to be 1:1 inclusion specialists for the kiddos who need extra support to be successful at our events. Whether your child has a behavioral challenge, physical disabilities, cognitive delays, sensory integration disorders, or any special need, you can email our Director, Kelly O’Connor, to set-up a meeting to build a support plan for your child so they can successfully attend all our events through the year.
