News Introducing Little Dutch Club: A New Childcare Program for School-Aged Children

Published on April 5, 2024


We are excited to announce that Pella Schools will be offering a childcare program called Little Dutch Club for school-aged children starting Fall of 2024.  We are dedicated to providing high quality childcare for kindergarteners through 4th graders in a fun environment for the children to look forward to coming to each day.  Academics and creative thinking will be embedded in activities to make this time meaningful and engaging!

Little Dutch Club will be available for childcare in the mornings (6:30am – 8:00am) as well as after school (3:15pm – 6:00pm).  Additionally, families can opt into a Wednesday Early Out Only option.  All of these options provide families with childcare on no-school days if they wish to opt in.  Finally, childcare will be offered in the summers with first preference to families who were part of Little Dutch Club during the school year.

For more information about Little Dutch Club, please click this link.  You can find information about summer care for 2025 here.

Registration is now open!  If you are interested in registering your child for Little Dutch Club, please visit our website at

The main page provides information on how to register.

Little Dutch Club will be run by Pella Schools with the Little Dutch Academy Director overseeing the program.  It is not part of the current child care program at Madison called Kids Club run by New Horizons.  Starting next fall, New Horizons will be operating their school-aged program at their own facilities.
