Welcome to the nest

The Cardinals’ Nest will provide services to children who have attended school on that day, based on the current A/B schedule. As schedules change and develop we will adapt accordingly. At this time, we must limit daily attendance to 10 students in order to provide social distance.

The Art program will be operated separately in a different room. Families will be contacted separately regarding Art.

The Cardinal’s Nest is pleased to offer academic enrichment activities in a safe, supervised environment for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday, from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM. 

The Cardinals’ Nest works closely with your child’s teacher to provide activities designed to enhance the learning that occurs during the school day. We provide a snack, time for homework and tutoring, and a planned mix of math, reading, writing, science, art, drama, music and other enrichment activities.

Children do not need to stay until 5:00 PM or participate everyday, the choice is up to the family. Billing is based on time spent, with invoices sent when the month is completed, payable within 10 days.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Carpenter at (509) 337-6461 or email at kcarpenter@waitsburgsd.org. If you have trouble reaching program staff after 4:00 PM, please call Tami Bohlman at (509) 540-1400.
