Life Kids Before and Aftercare is a non-profit community program affiliated with the Capital Church and Life for the Nations Church. We are located at 477 Krumkill Rd Albany, NY 12203.
Life Kids first opened our doors in 2008. The program was initiated due to the scarcity of affordable, quality before and aftercare programs in the South Colonie area. Many parents cannot afford the high prices of fulltime day care centers and even those who can afford them, find those schools and programs at full capacity. So, in an effort to meet a real need in our community, Life Kids was born. We offer after school care, drop- in care, vacation care and camps for Holiday, Winter, Spring, and Summer Breaks. We service the Guilderland School District. We are striving to exceed your expectations on every level.
Our Mission & Vision
We want each child who enters our facility to grow emotionally, educationally, physically healthy and balanced. We are very proud of our commitment to excellence in our staffing and facilities. We are a NYS licensed School Age Child Care provider. During program hours your children will be guided through a time of creative play, a variety educational lessons, fun free play, and homework help. We want you and your family to feel comfortable so we adopt the idea that every child will “get what they need” from our program. For those children who need structure activities we provide a scheduled afternoon of activities while other children are allowed to choose whether or not to participate in a scheduled activity. We work closely with the parents to ensure their after school experience is a positive one.
