Since 2005 Bouncin' Babies & Kool Kids Child Care Center and Preschool has developed a quality childcare facility with a focus on education and developmental needs of children. The philosophy at Bouncin' Babies & Kool Kids is to provide a fun-loving, educational experience in a nurturing environment.
The goal of Bouncin' Babies & Kool Kids is to offer each child, infant through school age, the opportunity to learn and grow physically, intellectually, emotionally, morally, and socially. We believe that children should be able to express their individuality through the encouragement, support and loving guidance of our caring, consistent staff.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
