Giving Your Children a Safe and Positive Childcare Experience

At Kids Kampus Daycare and Preschool we provide an environment that is safe and nurturing, as well as implementing a strong emphasis on traditional education with Biblical values.

We know and value the importance of providing your child with a safe daycare environment that promotes a positive experience. We have security measures in place to ensure that commitment to you. Each of our staff is identifiable by our Kids Kampus uniforms. We have been blessed with a state of the art facility that has beautiful classrooms and a full sized gymnasium with age appropriate equipment that enhances your child’s development.

A Journey of Learning

What makes our center different from other centers? Passion. We recognize the value and uniqueness of each child, and through that passion we desire to instill an Early Childhood level of education with biblical values that we hope will be the beginning of a long relationship with learning for your child in the future. We are excited to partner with each family on this wonderful journey of learning!

Our Kids Kampus Preschool offers many diverse educational activities. With these activities we recognize that not every child develops at the same rate, especially during the early childhood stage, so we understand that a preschool curriculum also must be flexible to accommodate the varying needs of the students.

Fully Licensed Childcare Services

We are a fully functioning licensed center since 2001. Thru the licensing process we have met or exceeded the detailed regulations governing staff qualifications, staff-to-child ratios, number of square feet of play per child, discipline guidelines, equipment used, nutrition, health records emergency medical care, fire and tornado safety, lock down procedures, as well as environmental checks. Our staff goes thru extensive background checks and continued yearly training. All our staff are trained in CPR and First Aide training.

Our Staff

Our staff is made up of college educated teachers and trained teacher assistants that are carefully chosen for their dedication, caring, and passion for children. We also require back ground checks and recommendation letters from potential teachers. We know how precious your children are to you and we want to provide the best environment that we can while they attend our center.

A Kids Kampus Teacher is a nurturer as well as an educator, someone who encourages learning thru exploration, and who understands the balance between what children need to feel safe and what that child needs to reach their potential. Your child’s teacher is your partner.

At Kids Kampus, families and teachers work together, celebrating successes, navigation challenges, and communication daily about your child’s achievements and goals.
