After-School Program K-6th Grade

Ken-Rock’s After-School Program, sponsored by the United Way of Rock River Valley and the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, is an energetic, entertaining, educational and safe place for kids in kindergarten through 6th grade.

Center staff helps students with their homework, including comprehensive reading  lessons. The After-School Program will provide a nutritious meal and help children build character through arts and crafts and physical fitness programs. Most of all, kids have fun.

If your child attends Riverdahl, Froberg, Swan Hillman, RESA or Legacy Academy, bus transportation to Ken-Rock is provided through the Rockford Public Schools transportation department. To make arrangements for transportation call 815-966-3706.

As parents, you want what’s best for your children. When your child participates in an educational reading program – promising to raise your child’s reading and comprehension levels – you’re giving them the chance to succeed in many different ways. Through early exposure to books, kids develop vocabulary skills and learn to recognize letters and words, giving their written communication skills a big boost.

Give Savannah a call at (815) 398-8864 to learn how to enroll your child today or click the Register Now button below. The cost is $40.00 per week ($60.00 for both morning and afternoon care) and Y-Care benefits are accepted. 

Our daily reading program is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois Community Grants Program. Full-Time Onsite Certified Reading Instructor is available for your child’s needs.

Your children will be exposed to a structured homework program and we track the results. 

  • 91% of our students meet or exceed standards of completed assignments. 
  • 86% of our students met reading comprehension standards.
  • 100% of our students moved on to the next grade in 2017.

The goal of the Ken-Rock After-School Program is to strengthen and reinforce the education that the students are receiving from the Rockford School District.
