Kids Connection is a before- and after-school care program held at Christ UMC for those who need care for their children outside of school hours.  Kids Connection also runs a camp during the summer.


 I know many of you have questions about the upcoming school year and what will be happening. So do we! Most school districts are deciding what to do by mid July. That being said, we have already been discussing what Kids Connection will be doing as well to help our families out. We hope to accommodate the best we can for families depending on what Dallastown district decides to do. We will be in touch as soon as we know more. Thank you for your understanding and hope to be in touch with you all soon about the 2020-2021 school year!

Looking Ahead to the Summer Camp Schedule :

July 13-17 Summer Safari

July 20-24 Christmas in July 

Plus each Friday is Water Fun Day!!

Miss Tess

Hi!  I have been working with before & after school programs and preschool programs for over 8 years and have been the director here at Kid's Connection since it began 6 years ago.  It has been such a great blessing working with these children and watching them learn and grow!  I attended Penn State and York College where I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Special Education.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, horseback riding, and line dancing.  I look forward to getting to know you and your family


Miss Grace S.  

Hello all!  I graduated from Spring Grove Area School District in May of 2019 and I’m currently in my freshman year of college at HACC with a major focus of Elementary Education.  In the next year or so I plan on transferring to York College.  Last summer I was a camp counselor, which was my first time ever working with children and absolutely fell in love with the idea of being an educator!  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family, playing with my adorable dogs, and watching Netflix!  I’m so excited to be a part of Kid’s Connection and being able to meet all of you!
