Kids’ Zone provides a high-quality program and a strong partnership with each child’s family. We focus on children as individuals, and strive to create a unique experience in a safe, nurturing and enriching environment.

Kids’ Zone is licensed by the State of Michigan for child care. We are staffed at an 18 students to 1 adult ratio, and will expand care as needed until we reach our allowed maximum.

2023-24 Application Procedures

The Kids’ Zone application window will begin with a Kick-Off week on Wednesday, May 17, 2023. Completed applications will be accepted through June 1st, 2023. This early start will allow us to plan staffing for the Fall.

Please return completed forms online, in person at Berkley Building Blocks, by fax 248.546.9238 or via email by June 1st, 2023.  Families will receive notice of acceptance into the Kids’ Zone program by June 10th, and the first month’s tuition will be due in September.

Students will be considered in order of their scheduled days, with 5 days/week students first, after all applications are received.  Signing up for 5 days/week and changing to less days at a later date may result in you going on the waiting list.  Please only sign up for the days you need, so we can try to accommodate everyone that turned in applications during the kick-off week.  If availability allows throughout the school year we will accept new students on a first come first served basis until we reach maximum capacity.

Once the program is full, students will be placed on a waiting list and contacted when space becomes available. If you are placed on the waitlist for Kids' Zone care you will be notified when ANY day you have requested becomes available.
