We offer a kindergarten program to those children enrolled in morning kindergarten classes. Our staff picks up the children from school and walks with them to S.O.K.O. where they eat lunch and spend the afternoon. Our kindergarten children enjoy their time at S.O.K.O. doing crafts and puzzles, playing board games, cooperative games, and gym games, as well as having story time and free play options to play with all of our toys.

September 1st, 2010 was the 20th anniversary of S.O.K.O.'s inception as a licensed out of school care program. S.O.K.O. was started originally as a lunch room in the upstairs gym. We started with 9 children with one toy box. We moved downstairs about 2 years later, and just kept on growing, both in space and in numbers.S.O.K.O. incorporated in Dec. 1995 and became S.O.K.O. Inc.Over the years we have had many staff members and hundreds of children in the S.O.K.O. family. It has been an amazing journey, with lots of fun times and experiences with many special children and their families.December 9th, 2010, S.O.K.O. officially became an accredited program, a real accomplishment! On behalf of all of us, we would like to welcome all new children and parents to S.O.K.O. and all the old   ones, too, to our     S.O.K.O. family.
