Northeast Kids Count operates daily, following dismissal, from 2:00pm to 5:45pm. Our program follows the Ithaca City School District academic calendar. We are open on selective vacation days for a 'day camp' style "full day". For more information, please see the Full Day tab.
Our daily schedule includes numerous activities and a 'family style' meal. Here is an outline of our daily schedule.
