Located on more than 1.5 acres, Kids International campus provides a safe, clean, comfortable and kid friendly environment so kids can focus on being kids. The building was built to look like a residential home to help kids feel more at home. Don’t be fooled though…this is no ordinary “house”. Inside is a creative blend of state of the art childcare and spacious home feel. Modern equipment is just the beginning of our state of the art facilities.
Our classrooms are bright, colorful, and engaging with enough space for everyone to spread out. Teacher/Student ratios are better than state requirements which provide for an exceptional quality program.
Our teachers, on average, have more than 8 years of childhood education experience and believe kids learn best by doing. Our hands-on activities immerse children in fun while learning.
Daily notes are provided so you know exactly what your child did in any given day of fun. Enrichment classes, CompuChild and Gymnastics Express are available weekly.
Our nutritional food program that is second to none. Our children receive breakfast, lunch and a snack, which is prepared fresh daily in our kitchen. Our cook has been preparing healthy, nutritious food for our students for more than 10 years. Part of creating a home-like environment for the children is serving them their meal family-style.
Our playground equipment is unmatched by other childcare providers. Modern and safe, our equipment provides the ultimate combination of fun and peace of mind. Our sprawling “backyard” provides plenty of room for exercise and adventure and adds to the “home away from home” experience so kids are comfortable. Notable features to the spacious backyard are a garden, walking path and low bridge so kids can experience nature safely.

In addition to exposing kids to computers, we have added SMART Tables, which support the Reggio Emilia Approach. One touch on the SMART Table screen is never enough. Young students are drawn to its surface, where work and play come together in hands-on, collaborative activities.
The SMART Table is the first multi-touch, multi-user interactive learning center that allows groups of students to work simultaneously on its surface. The table’s interface is so intuitive that even the youngest of students can get started without instructions. Designed to encourage collaboration, the table gives teachers flexible content options. They can use customize, ready-made activities or create their own. And the table is ready to use instantly, so it’s easy for both students and teachers.
