                                            About Kids College

Kids College, part of the Community Education Department at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, has been providing learning opportunities for the youth in our service area for more than 20 years. This unique program offers children and teens academic and enrichment workshops on a college campus. Kids College workshops are designed to teach new and meaningful skills, develop new interests and hobbies, excite students about learning, and provide an opportunity for them to explore possible careers.

Kids College workshops (fee-based, not-for-credit) are provided after school, during school breaks, and on Saturdays each year during the fall, spring, and summer terms.   Each workshop is individually priced based on the total number of classroom hours and the maximum number of students.  They are scheduled based on the availability of classroom facilities and teachers.

                      New Workshops and Prospective Teachers
Kids College is always seeking new and innovative programming. The goal is to provide unique, challenging workshops that encourage young students to think and create. Interested persons who have teaching experience (Note: a teaching credential is NOT required), expertise in a field, and a passion for working with youth are encouraged to explore this teaching opportunity.  (For detailed information, click on "Potential Teachers & Workshop Proposals" button located on the left side column).  Please contact Claudia Mackey, Kids College Coordinator, at 209-954-5015 if you have any questions, would like to discuss your ideas, or need assistance in completing the Workshop Proposal form.
                                            Online Interest Survey
Parents, grandparents, and the general public are encouraged to make suggestions for future Kids College programming. Your ideas are useful in assessing the needs of students in our community. Please click on: Online Interest Survey

                                             Safety Policies
The safety of children is a primary concern of Kids College. Students must be escorted to and picked up promptly from the class location, each session.   Drop-offs are not permitted.

Medical Emergency Release forms must be completed and signed by the student's parent or legal guardian for each child at the beginning of each workshop. If a parent or legal guardian is unable to bring their child to Kids College on the first day of a workshop, they must complete this form in advance to process. In this case, please click on: Medical Emergency Release,
complete the form for each workshop, and send it with your child to give to the teacher at the beginning of a workshop.

                                    Classroom/Campus Conduct
Kids College students must meet program standards of good conduct and behavior while on the Delta College campus and at every class meeting. This means courteous attention, good manners, and careful handling of equipment being used. This is a college campus, and college classes will be in session; thus, disruptive behavior is not allowed. Students must follow the instructions given them by the teacher or a staff member.  Failure to follow this code of conduct may result in dismissal from the workshop with no refund from the Kids College program. Parents are responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing any equipment that their child might damage or break, either intentionally or through reckless behavior.

                                     Special Request Programs
Kids College Special Request Programs may be developed for schools, student clubs, church youth groups, pre-school groups, community centers, and for home-schooled students. The special request programs can be scheduled for a group of 10 or more students, pending availability of the instructors and facilities. Please contact Kids College to explore the program possibilities.

Disclaimer: Kids College reserves the right to alter the schedule and change teachers or classrooms, if necessary.
