Cardinal Place is the before and after school program located within the Willmar Public Schools since the early 70's. We currently have sites at Kennedy and Roosevelt Elementary Schools. We are open daily at 6:30am until school starts and after school until 6:00pm. We are open over holiday breaks, during late starts and early releases, and on days when school is cancelled.
Our mission is to provide a safe, caring, & fun environment for children that meets social, physical, and emotional needs through a variety of experiences and activities. We will encourage children to make positive choices while promoting self-awareness, fostering creativity, and providing leadership opportunities.
We offer homework help, crafts, activities, organized physical activities, outside time, social opportunities, computer lab, science experiments, cooking projects, and so much more! Once a month we collaborate with 4-H/University of Minnesota Extension to offer a fun alternative.
