After-school community center opening at Hillcrest Elementary


When school starts back up in August, around 30 to 40 kids in grades first grade through sixth grade will have a new after-school community center.

Boise Parks and Recreation decided to open Hillcrest Kid City at Hillcrest Elementary after doing an an analysis of Boise School District Title I schools and their locations. “This site has been on our radar for several years and was our next priority if/when funding could be secured,” Parks and Rec. Director Doug Holloway said.

Students will be able to stay at the community center and will have access to monitored computer time along with other activities and games.

“Because it is a free program, the barrier to pay for after-school care is removed for those families that may not otherwise be able to pay for such services,” Holloway said.

The center will be open Monday – Friday from 3:45 – 6 p.m. Homework assistance and a snack will also be provided to kids.

Pre-registration is required for all Boise Parks and Rec’s Kid City programs. For more information, head to the City of Boise’s website, here.
