About Us

OUR MISSION

To educate and inspire kids between the ages of 4 and 12 years old to grow into independent, contributing individuals. We do this by offering a comprehensive after school program. 

The After School Program

The after school time is the perfect time for children to learn to be self-empowered and develop their emotional, social, and mental skills. Our goal is to inspire and challenge every child in an individual way, so that they will grow into independent, contributing individuals. We work with children ages 4 – 12.  Our opening hours are from Monday – Friday, 12pm – 6pm. During school holidays we are open from 8am – 6pm.

The Bario Program

We run a project for kids from economically disadvantaged families. These kids learn a lot from being in a supportive, safe environment. Every child needs to have the same opportunity to grow. A selected group of kids can join the after school program for a full week. They get a warm lunch, educational/homework tutoring (extra attention on social and emotional skills) and they can join the talent encouraging activities.

Kids Camp

During school holidays we offer a fun and challenging kids program from 8am – 6pm. Our location might vary because of our outdoor activities during this period. Camp Joy is open for kids ages 4 – 12 . We also can make a custom-made program for companies that would like a special program for the children of their employees.Please contact us for a quotation. 

There are 4 principles of self empowerment we work from:

Meaningfulness

The first is meaningfulness: the value of the task in relation to individual beliefs, ideals and standards.

Competence

The confidence part, feeling qualified and confident completing the task.

Impact

The more impact you believe you have, the more motivated you are to work hard.

Choice

When you can choose, the more determined you are to accomplish the set goals.

Get to know our founder

Hi, nice to meet you! In a world full of inspiration, I try to give just that to others in any way I can.

My name is Kim Emnes. Born in Suriname, raised in Holland. I studied physical education at the Academy for Physical Education and Science in The Hague. With more than 20 years of teaching experience, the feeling of wanting more started to grow.

I started working as a commercial manager for fashion brand Zara, where I realized my power is in inspiring others to get the best out of themselves. Being a ‘sun child’ I moved to Dushi Curaçao. I noticed that a healthy lifestyle, especially for kids, is what I wanted to promote. So I did, and started the “Kids In Motion” After School Center.

We inspire kids and adults not only physically but also emotionally and socially.

When I am not busy with the after school, I am also active as a personal development coach, working in small groups (mostly with young adults) to give them the right tools to become what they want to become.

Doing what I love and loving what I do is my motto!

Love to talk to you, see you soon!
