▶️ Kids INC after school child care registration in Bend opens next week


Registration opens on May 8 for the Bend Park and Recreation District’s Kids INC after school childcare program for the 2023-24 school year.

Kids INC will again offer both full-time and part-time care options. Families selected for part-time spots will have the option to move to full-time care when spaces become available as long as they have indicated they want full-time on their application.

The part-time option was added last fall and BPRD said it was met with positive feedback.

Registration runs from May 8 until May 19 at 4:00 p.m.  BPRD says a lottery will be used to determine selection and waitlist status, and applicants will be notified of their status on June 1 and will have until June 12 to secure the space with a first month deposit.

“So if you sign up at 6:00 on the 8th or 4:30 on the 19th, you have the same opportunity to get into the program,” said Sue Boettner, BPRD Recreation Services Manager.

Applications will be taken online at the BPRD website or by phone at 541-389-7275.
