Day in the Life

General School Mission

MISSION:

Kids' Community Campus is dedicated to providing a safe, healthy, educational and fun environment for children from ages 24 months to 6 years of age. Our excellent staff of educators and child development specialists offer a multitude of curriculums tailored to your child’s individualized learning needs.
OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe that all children deserve care, attention, and nurturing. We believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. Kids' Community Campus encourages children to have a hands-on learning experience. This fosters age developmentally appropriate activities. We read to the children everyday. We believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem, social skills, and cognitive skills. Children need an environment that supports creative self expression and stimulates learning. Also we believe that children need to have fun while learning! At Kids' Community Campus, we often celebrate birthdays, special occasions, and participate in local field trips. Children learn best from experiencing the world around them.

Kids' Community Campus recognizes you have a challenging schedule and supports parents the best we can. We recognize the importance of work, stress, and demands placed on parents. Therefore, we strive to make it easier on parents by giving them the knowledge their children are in good hands; by accomodating your other child care needs with proper coordination and advance notice.
