We make it our priority to engage your child in environments which support learning opportunities and experiences that promote children’s total growth and development. As the child’s first and foremost teacher, we count on you to share information about your child as a learner and your role as your child’s education advocate. These efforts take place each day and have a vital impact on their future. A tour of our facilities can be scheduled upon request.
KIDCO recognizes how important it is to provide young children with nurturing, challenging and diverse environments that support active learning and build positive self-esteem. We accomplish these goals by being a high-quality early care and education program. KIDCO is a community-based organization, with active Parent and Policy Committees who provide valuable insight into the day to day operations, the curriculum children engage in and the employees who work to make KIDCO an excellent place to work.
KIDCO keeps up to date with research-based trends and applies best practices to the daily curriculum. This requires credentialed, well-informed employees. Our teachers, teacher assistants, and service area personnel give children the necessary guidance, structure and flexibility they need, as they become active, life-long learners. There is a staff development model in place to support teaching staff to maximize children’s intellectual development. At KIDCO we aim to provide each child with fun and creative experiences that foster their cognitive, social, creative, emotional and physical development.
Teachers are the first to plan activities for the children in their classroom every week and these activities are carried our on a daily basis. Other activities are planned for children as groups and sometimes at the center such as, visits from the dentist, the fire department and field trips. These activities are identified in the KIDCO Express Newsletter. Please stay informed.
Communication is key to our success. Each month the KIDCO EXPRESS Newsletter is shared to bring parents the dates highlighting events, birthdays, trainings, and other activities. Please read the newsletter and stay informed.
Safety is always a priority. The KIDCO COOP Plan guide identifies the existing resources at KIDCO and the resources KIDCO would assess so that they may be offered to the children, parents, staff, community friends and partners during and after any potential emergency.
KIDCO is a Sponsor Agency under the Child Care Food Program, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The approved Breakfast, Lunch and Snack menus are posted at each site and can also be found in the “Services Tab” on our Home page. It is important that parents always check what their child will be enjoying on any specific day. Your input is always appreciated. Certified and knowledgeable staff works very hard to develop a menu that is healthy, appealing and tasty for our children. ENJOY!!!!
