Pre-K Before and After School Care Program Description:
The USC Before and After School Pre-K program is formed in conjunction with the Kansas City Kansas Early Childhood Center. The program serves approximately 40 students between the ages of 3 to 5 years of age in the urban core of Wyandotte county. The program provides a safe and educationally enriching alternative for children during non-school hours.
