Kidventure takes great pride in providing a safe, fun and purposeful program for all of its students.
Finale provides a unique and focused curriculum that offers our kids new and exciting opportunities for learning through fun, hands on activities. Kidventure focuses on all aspects of a child’s growth and development while allowing kids to be kids in a safe, positive and fun environment. Program components include:
- Art Projects

At most of our locations, you also have the choice of enrolling in an Encore Club. These clubs include a variety of enriching programs like dance, chess, science and more. Participating in Encore clubs allows your child to develop his or her own skills with professional instructors, that are approved by Kidventure. Please check your school page to see what is offered and for more details.

The most important part of your child’s after school experience is our staff. We pride ourselves on selecting experienced, active and caring individuals for our programs. We require the following of all our counselors:
- First Aid and CPR Certification
- Virtus (Sexual Abuse Awareness) Certification
- Extensive Background Check
- Adults Age 18 or Older
- Wear Professional After School Uniform Daily
- Attendance at Ongoing Trainings
In addition to our counselors that are counted “in ratio” (1 counselor per 10 children for 1st-8th grade, and 1:8 for Early Childhood), we have a Lead Counselor that maintains day-to-day operations at each After School location. Furthermore, the After School Program Coordinator creates the program curriculum, ensures that all supplies are on site, and is ultimately responsible for the successful operation of After School.
Our staff is committed to your children and encourages you to offer your comments, compliments and suggestions.

The Power to Change Lives
“Kidventure is an energetic group of counselors that have a fun filled afterschool program packed with a variety of activities for all age groups. Students love the variety of games and schedules that keep them moving seamlessly throughout the late afternoon hours. Parents love the low student to teacher ratios, the added layer of security and the continuous communication. Administration enjoys meeting with Kidventure on a regularly basis, as faculty appreciates the guidance with homework and friendly staff.”
-Bernadette L. Drabek, Head of School St. Rose of Lima
“Kidventure Finale creates a safe, engaging, and fun afternoon environment for our students. Their low student to counselor ratio allows for close attention and personal connections and students can pursue interests through a variety of extra offerings through Encore. It’s been a well-received and great overall experience for our students.”
-Thomas Day, Principal Travis Elementary HISD
