About Us

Families with students enrolled at Kaleidoscope Charter School (KCS) may participate in the before and after school program ALPHA OMEGA KIDS, known as AOK. Alpha Omega Kids is a separate entity and is independent of KCS.

 

Established in 2004, AOK is exempt from licensing due to the following conditions. First, Kaleidoscope Charter School founders invited Charlene Stewart to join KCS as a partner in education. Second, after accepting the challenge, Charlene registered AOK as a small business at KCS. Third, AOK was approved to operate by the KCS School Board as the school's before and after school interactive club. Because AOK is not the usually licensed daycare and with KCS supervision and support, AOK can offer families a hefty discount on tuition and a team of trained, certified, or licensed and caring teachers, professionals, and volunteers.

 

Philosophy

AOK is a before and after school program that is family oriented, multicultural, anti-biased, and all-inclusive for our students. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: "Intelligence plus character… that is the goal of true education." Our stellar program is designed based on this philosophical platform. AOK is committed to maximizing our resources and supporting our children to learn and grow to become their best versions.

 

Programming

AOK incorporates various activities and games that promote healthy study habits such as homework help, buddy-reading, computer lab, family values like respect, responsibility, kindness, trust, and social skills that challenge independent thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration through teamwork.

 

Full Circle

Although we hold our students with high expectations, they feel at home and belong while they are at AOK because they enjoy our democratic, safe, clean and accepting environment. Many of our alums have returned to AOK as volunteers and teacher's assistants. They would tell their friends: "Once AOK, always AOK."
