HOURLY CARE - BACKUP CARE - PRESCHOOL EDUCATION - PRIVATE PARTIES

Join us for Preschool!

Traditional Preschool with a Modern Twist

Safe and Convenient

Use us on your schedule - just drop-by. Pay only for the time used. Our centers are licensed. And, our open, "no walls" floor plan allows for continuous teacher and parent observation. Ahh . . .peace-of-mind.

What to Expect

We encourage parents and children to take a tour of our center and meet our staff. This eases the transition on your first visit, especially for very young children. If your child seems overwhelmed with the activity, we suggest you allow them to observe before they join in. When they are ready, teachers will direct them into an appropriate activity.

 

For more detailed coverage of what you can expect, see our FAQs on the side of the page.

Reminders:

  • Socks are to be worn in the play area.
  • Diapers are welcomed. If your child is in diapers, bring a spare.
  • If your child is toilet training, bring extra clothes as a backup . . .  we do remind them!
  • Label all items and meals from home.
  • Complimentary snacks of crackers with 100% apple juice served at 10am, 3pm and 8pm.
  • Naps are not scheduled since children arrive at various times. If a child is tired, they are encouraged to rest in our theater area.
  • Let your children use our toys. Check with your local center for their policy on electronic games, music devices, and cell phones.  Computers and tablets for distance learning are allowed.
  • Our fees are calculated to the minute. Our minimum charge is for 30 minutes. Payment for your visit is due upon checkout. We accept cash and credit cards. If payment is not made at time of pickup, an Open Invoice fee is added.

Childcare by the Hour

Need a few hours here and there. Days, evenings and weekends keep appointments, attend meetings, run errands, shop, play sports, relax, see a movie, eat out… know your children are safe and having fun.

Why We're Special

Take me to KidsPark!

High energy. Something for everyone. Caring. Enriching. And, some might say, “it’s a zoo!”  We smile, and say, “it’s great to see the kids having fun”!

You may see some kids in the midst of movement games, some on the mountain-of-energy, some in the creative process at the art tables, some at work on a lego or waffle block structure and some in conversation with friends.

We see an organized program with planned tiers of activity for each age group – preschool and school-age.

  • There is a mix of teacher-organized and child-initiated activities in both group and individual settings.
  • Play components are selected to promote cooperation, socialization, listening skills, and motor development.
  • It is a family environment where siblings can be together in non-gross motor activities.

The benefit of mixed ages.

KidsPark is a family environment where kids of many ages play. It is great to have the option to have siblings play together, especially if the little one needs some reassurance on their first visit. School-agers also have the option to be in the Blue Crew, an area only for school-agers where they can socialize and play with age-appropriate games and do more detailed art projects.

Many of our Blue Crew kids (school-agers) have grown up with KidsPark; they know the routines and have a positive influence in the center as leaders and role models for younger children. And, they shine with pride and self-confidence when they know they have helped another child.

No one has to worry about small toes being stepped on – we separate school-age and preschool children for gross motor games and times on the Mountain of Energy, our indoor play structure.

Preschool with a Modern Twist

We prepare children for entry into Kindergarten! Our traditional curriculum subjects are enhanced with STEAM. Uniquely, you pick your schedule and can change it at any time. Only pay for the days you attend. We welcome new students all year.

How does it work

Our Preschool is what modern families need and want. Flexibility without sacrificing quality. Parents pick their own schedule based on the needs of their child and the family’s schedule.  Only pay for the days you attend.  Change your schedule at any time. Our program is open to new students at any time.

The key to our program’s success is involving all children in attendance at their own developmental level. We engage children so they learn if they come once a week or 5 times a week. We use:
•    Active hands-on learning style
•    Flexible scheduling
•    Curriculum diversity
•    Parent-Teacher communication

Our traditional academic curriculum focuses on Kindergarten preparedness:
•    Knowledge Base (letters, numbers, colors, shapes)
•    Daily Life Skills (time, calendar, weather, personal care)
•    Science (color mixing, movement/reaction, bugs, solar system, ocean life)
•    Math Concepts (sorting, quantity, patterns, graphing, measurement)

Uniquely, each month a unit on The Arts (art, music, drama, literature, cooking) is included.  Parents are invited to attend their children’s performances, visit their art displays and enjoy the feasts they create.  We truly believe The Arts enrich one’s life – no matter what age.

As a supplement to in-class learning, KidsPark provides online lesson resources for home use.  If you have questions, call our email our Preschool Hotline to get individualized help from a Preschool Teacher. Together we prepare your child for a life-long love of learning.
