Our philosophy is based upon 21st century learning as it provides newly expanding ideas that are student driven rather than teacher centered, and incorporates students connecting with one another as the teacher observes, asks questions to provoke critical thinking, and guides each student to comprehend the world around them. We also have a vision of Kids Connect preschoolers being introduced to technology through software that provides developmental progression and will ultimately allow them to network with others of a wider global community!
Another goal at Kids Connect is providing a healthy environment through the use of movement and exercise. At different stages of a baby and toddler's growth, there will be a number of physical, mental, and emotional changes that Kids Connect will play a major role in developing. Physical activities build flexibility and strength, develop balance and coordination, and encourage agility, rhythm and overall fitness to launch a lifetime of healthy habits. Through physical activity, your child will establish a love for learning and begin to foster listening skills as well as prolonged concentration. As minute as these attributes may seem, they become the foundation of life long skills including sharing, group work, attentiveness, and leadership - composing the greatest well-rounded individual.

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.
