Kid Connection
Directors & Phones

Our Kid Connection programs maintain five star license quality. Staff members are competent, mature individuals who enjoy working with children. Each year, staff members are required to take continuing education workshops which help them be more prepared in caring for the students. Students are grouped by age and enjoy age and developmentally appropriate activities. Kid Connection is offered at 9 sites serving Newton-Conover City and Hickory Public Schools.
On non-school days, holiday and spring break and summer, children from all districts and private schools are welcome to enroll. 
Please call or email one of our Program Coordinators with any questions you have.
