Boise School District

At Just For Kids we treat everyone with kindness and respect as we work, play, and learn together. Our mission is to offer safe, affordable, year round on-site care for children ages 5-12 in the Boise School District….something we have done for over thirty years. When students are in our care, activities and relationships occur in a healthy, positive and relaxed environment in which well-qualified staff provide personal attention and guidance to each child.

All Just For Kids staff members are Boise School District employees and licensed childcare providers through the City of Boise.

No weekend or evening shifts.
