Campus Kids – Before and After School Care 


Campus Kids is a State Licensed Day Care program and we are preparing for school start.  We offer Before and After School Care throughout the school year.  Campus Kids opens at 6:00am at both Cedar Trails Elementary and Beach Elementary.  We do activities throughout the morning, and then serve a light breakfast.  We dismiss the students in time to get to their class at either Cedar Trails, Beach, or Cedar View.  Cedar Trails students may attend Campus Kids at their school, while Beach and  Cedar View students may attend at Beach.  In the afternoons, Campus Kids opens at 3:30pm for students at the same locations.  A healthy snack is served and homework help and fun activities are offered until 6:00pm.  To enroll, please complete and return a registration packet before September 1, 2017 to reserve your spot.  Packets may be picked up at Cedar Trails, or they can be found online at csredhawks.org.  There is a $20 annual registration fee for one child or $35 for a family.  Rates are $8.00 a morning or afternoon, or $15 for both on the same day.  Parents complete a schedule of days that they need care, and they are billed a month in advance for services.

For an additional charge, we also offer care on early release days and on snow days for pre-registered children. Please call (616) 696-1716 or email campus.kids@csredhawks.org for additional information.

From the Superintendent

Laura VanDuyn

Dear Cedar Springs Public Schools Colleagues & Parents,

On behalf of our amazing students and their families, our talented staff, our dedicated Board of Education and our entire CSPS community, thank you for voting on May 2, 2017. The millage vote was a success for all 20 school districts in Kent County. Our Kent Intermediate School District serves our district well and stood up for building strong schools and strong communities in all Kent County school districts.

The Yes for Kids campaign was just that as you, our Kent County voters, put kids and their learning as a priority in all our school communities.

In great appreciation for your support, 

Laura VanDuyn, Ed.D. Superintendent, Cedar Springs Public Schools
