Kids Night OutCost: $40.00
Kids Night Out will return in Fall 2014. Please check back for more information.
This program meets one Friday night each month* for three hours and is designed for children to be involved in fun activities in a structured environment at the Kinney Center. Kids Night Out serves as a respite for parents who may want to enjoy a night out without worrying about their child with autism. Children are organized into age groups and provided with 1:1 support. Space is limited.
At this time, individuals who exhibit severe behavioral problems such as aggression are not permitted at Kids Night Out.
Due to the educational component of the Kinney Center, at various times, students enrolled in the autism minor or certificate program will be observing Kinney Center programs as part of their coursework.
In the case of inclement weather where a program must be canceled, sessions will not be made up due to time and space restrictions.
Please note that this program can accommodate only a limited number of participants. Upon acceptance, the program fee of $40.00 per child must be paid two weeks prior to the program date to guarantee placement. The Kinney Center offers a "sibling discount" to families with more than one child enrolled in the same program.
*Kids Night Out sessions are scheduled based on Saint Joseph's University's academic calendar. The Kinney Center makes an effort to have 9 sessions per year.
*On the evening of the Kids' Night Out program, please drop off your child promptly at 6:00 PM. Please visit the Directions page for directions to the drop-off/pick-up parking lot. The program is held in the Kinney Center, which is located in Connelly Hall room 250. There will be Kinney Center staff directing program participants where to go. The program ends promptly at 9:00 PM.
