Philosophy

Kiwanis Day Care Center is deeply committed to providing children with a loving and safe environment in which children can learn and grow.  Our program is designed to provide the community with quality and affordable child care and development with an emphasis on physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth activities and experiences.  The children will be exposed to activities that will foster skills in the following areas:  gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, social/emotional and other various areas that will build knowledge, attain skill, and foster a positive self image and confidence.  Additionally each child will be developmentally assessed at specific milestones to evaluate their progress.Our goal is to motivate and teach your child to share, take turns, get along with others, follow directions in both small and large groups, and feel free to express their own creativity and opinions, try new things without feeling any discomfort and feel good about one ’s self.
