Our after-school hours are from 2:00 P.M. - 6:00 P.M. Children are picked up Monday through Friday from local schools and come to our program on our Kids’ Place vans. We currently pick up from all Malden Public Schools, Cheverus Catholic School, Mystic Valley Regional Charter School and the Lafayette School in Everett. Children from other schools are welcomed to join our program with transportation provided by the parent or school.
A child’s world should be filled with learning and exploring - and it should be fun too! Each week is filled with a variety of fun and educational activities that make for an enriching school year! All of our activities incorporate opportunities to learn and grow. Special events and activities like Fire Prevention Week and Lights On After School add excitement to the school year and enrich their learning experience.
When your child arrives to Kids’ Place they will receive a wholesome and delicious snack and have an opportunity to sit and chat with peers and teachers. After snack they will go to homework or enrichment to receive support in math & reading skills. Homework and enrichment is followed by free time and chapel time where children learn the basics of Christian values through Bible stories, songs, games, and more. After chapel, your child will either continue their homework or go into an age-appropriate activity or a club such as Cooking, Science, Arts & Crafts, Sports, or team building activity just to name a few. After clubs or activities, your child will have had a fun-filled day and ready to go home.
Kids' Place offers full day care during the school year from 8:00 A.M. - 6:00 P.M. when schools are closed due to school vacation or Teacher Professional Development Days. Full day care is also provided on snow days when it is safe to open the program. Please note that the program will remain open for full day care the week prior to the start of the summer program and for the 2 weeks after the summer program has ended prior to the start of our regular school year schedule.
Vacation weeks give you a taste of our summer program, with theme-based activities and awesome field trips. Give us a call if you're in a bind and need the care. We're here for you!

Our weekly theme activities and clubs incorporate history, science, reading and math. We also take opportunities to assist children in developing social skills, life skills and more! Here at Kids’ Place we balance our time indoors in our air-conditioned building and outdoors in our large field area. Our outdoor area provides lots of room to run around & play and sun & shade for enjoying summer days. On Thursdays, you’ll catch us spending the afternoon playing water games and having a dance party! You won’t want to miss out on our weekly field trips and lasting friendships!
