Before and After School Child Care

Kids Connection (KTC) is the Johnston Community School District’s before and after school child care program.

KTC is available for JCSD students in grades DK-5 during the school year and all students in grades DK-6 during the summer. The focus of the program is to provide enjoyable, motivating, and structured activities for students, along with offering enriching field trips. KTC provides quality, caring staff to meet the individual needs of each child and foster open communication with district families. All five KTC sites are licensed by the Department of Human Services.
