The goal of KidZCommunity child development programs is to provide an environment of success where children develop skills which will enable them to make sense of the world. The children will have the opportunity to interact with their environments to learn through experimentation, problem‐solving, positive social interactions, and self-motivated exploration.
Through a safe, nurturing, and appropriately stimulating environment, the staff will plan activities and interactions which will emphasize social‐emotional, cognitive, and physical development. The role of the child is to explore and discover, a role which aligns naturally with the Loose Parts approach. Loose Parts are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials such as rocks, sticks, bark, fabric, recycled materials, and materials that interest children.
The child’s natural curiosity of the world through loose parts empower the imagination with endless creative possibilities. The role of the staff is to participate in a partnership, both in and out of class, with parents to ensure their child’s success. The curriculum is designed to provide both individual and group activities.
The program offers learning opportunities through art, music and movement, science and cooking, fine motor and gross motor, emergent literacy, and dramatic play activities. The curriculum will also be supported with field trips and community visitors.
We promote the participation of parents in a variety of activities related to their children’s education. Ongoing communication between staff and parents is an essential part of the curriculum, promoting consistency and reinforcing the child’s success.

They help me with the kids and give me progress reports on how they are doing. Also, I really appreciate the diapers donations.

I was expecting less resources. I was really surprised. They had more than I expected! From offering fresh organic meals to dental and health care support, I am so grateful for all the support I have received.
