Davis Kids Klub (DKK) is a quality, affordable recreation enrichment program located on Davis Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) campuses. DKK offers safe, structured fun in a recreational environment that supports academic, social and emotional growth. The daily schedule and programming include time for homework tutoring, a snack, guided fitness and outdoor play, as well as games and activities that focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). DKK works in partnership with DJUSD, UC Davis, and other community groups to provide enrichment opportunities, such as chess and theater, as well as a number of other exciting and engaging activities for students.
Davis Kids Klub offers children and families a nurturing and inclusive program staffed with experienced directors and assistants. DKK hires licensed teachers, school district paraprofessionals, and other qualified individuals to serve as a part of the Davis Kids Klub team. Site directors are CPR and first aid certified, have been fingerprinted and background checked, have a clear TB test, and have completed mandated reporter training. In addition, staff has had program specific training in classroom management, conflict resolution and emergency action plans and procedures. Staff is diligent in maintaining a positive, safe, and clean environment where children learn, play, have fun and thrive.
The mission of the Davis Kids Klub is to work in close partnership with the Davis Joint Unified School District to provide an affordable, quality enrichment program for children. Our program is committed to meeting the unique needs of all children by supporting their academic, physical and socio-emotional development in a safe, nurturing, inclusive environment. Each site-based program has a caring and qualified staff that is dedicated to providing children with fun and enriching opportunities. We work closely with children, families, district staff, and community members to support, encourage and challenge children to be active, engaged, creative, socially and academically aware students and citizens.
DKK employs well qualified recreation leaders who participate in ongoing training in classroom management, conflict resolution, emergency procedures and curriculum execution. Ratios of leaders to students is approximately 11:1. All leaders are fingerprinted, have cleared TB tests and reference checks upon hiring. Most of the DKK leaders are pursuing careers working with children and have college child development coursework that supports their work at DKK. All DKK employees are mandated by the state of California to report any suspicion of child abuse. Employees do not form opinions or conclusions on their suspicion. It is their responsibility only to contact CPS and state the known facts. The responsibility then lies with CPS to investigate and draw conclusions, and, if necessary prosecute.
