City Kids is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization located in Washington, D.C. Our mission is to provide multicultural, science, literacy, and arts education, with a focus on anti-racist and anti-bias curriculum. Through cooperative planning, community building, and educational partnerships, we provide academic and enrichment opportunities for all our families. For fall 2021 - spring 2022, our classes will serve kids eleven to fourteen years old, but kids a little older or younger will be considered. We offer programming four days per week; how much the kids attend is up to each individual family. Many of our activities include a hands-on project, and we spend a lot of time in nature.

We are an inclusive community, and our curriculum is secular; all interested families are encouraged to inquire. Space is limited because we are a small program, but we consider everyone; if your family is interested, fill out a survey here.
Covid-19 Update: Like a lot of educational programs, City Kids is very different this year. We are not renting our usual indoor space; rather, during warm weather we meet outside for classes and activities. During inclement weather, our academic classes are online, but we still meet outside for hikes and fun activities as long as it is not raining. While together, all children and adults are required to wear masks and stay at least six feet apart.
