CHATHAM KIDS CLUB, INC. (CKC) is a not-for-profit school-age child care program incorporated in 2001 by a group of Chatham Central School District parents, who wished to create an alternative to babysitting or self-care for children residing in the Chatham Central School District or whose parents are employed by the Chatham Central School District. The continuous growth in enrollment since CKC began operation in the Spring of 2002 has confirmed our community’s need for year-round school-aged child care and the confidence our participants and their families have in our programs.
The primary goal of CKC is to provide safe, reliable, and affordable care for school-aged children residing in the Chatham Central School District. CKC seeks to offer a desirable alternative for parents who regularly need before and after school care for their children. Beyond providing adult supervision in a safe setting, CKC seeks, through its trained and caring staff, to develop children’s interests, social skills, self-confidence, and imagination. In addition, it offers a healthy outlet for children before and/or after school. Profit making is not a goal of the organization.
