Kiddie Kampus serves a mixed-age population, and children generally attend the school for two or three years.

We provide a full spectrum of exciting, developmentally appropriate activities that reflect children's needs for individual expression and growth.

Kiddie Kampus embraces a play-based curriculum. Our philosophy and belief is that children learn best through play. Play takes the form of any self-satisfying activity through which the child gains control and comes to understand life. In play, children make decisions, solve problems, and deal with consequences. Influential mentors of our play-based curriculum include preschool educators such as Bev Boss, Lisa Murphy, and Tom Hobson.

Kiddie Kampus offers two programs:

Morning Program

  • 3-4 days a week
  • Open to children ages 3 years to 5 years old
  • 9:00am - 12:00pm
The Morning Program is supported by the Director, Head Teacher, and 5-6 working parents everyday (approximately 1 adult to 3 children ratio.)

Children attend our morning program with mixed age peers and participate in a variety of activities that address their individual stage of development. In this program, children participate in art, cooking, dramatic play, music and movement, story telling, puzzles, games, gardening, gross and fine motor play, science and nature study, outdoor activity, and circle time discussion. We delve into weekly themes to encourage children to discover and look at the world in different ways. We take field trips, have visitors come to the school, and set up imaginary play areas that rotate frequently.

Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K) Program
  • 2 days a week (in addition to morning program)
  • Open to children eligible to start Kindergarten the following year
  • 12:00pm - 2:15pm (twice a week)
Pre-K is supported by the Director and Head Teacher (1 teacher to 6 student ratio, with occasional working parent participation.)

Our Pre-K Program is designed to provide children with an environment and skill set created to enhance their last year of preschool and encourage a successful transition to Kindergarten. Activities include the Handwriting Without Tears program, math and science projects that scaffold on from the morning activities, child-led cooking, group games, public speaking, democratic decision and rule making, independent (child-centered) activities, and rotating job assignments. Children develop their self-help skills and are encouraged to cultivate a strong sense of self, as well as, respect for friends and peers. The Pre-K program strives to teach both independence and interdependence skills. Within the comfort and familiarity of their play-based environment, children will begin to explore rules and expectations similar to those expected in many Kindergarten programs. The Pre-K program is limited to 12 students. Priority is given to students eligible for Kindergarten the following year. Spaces will be available to the first 12 students via digital sign-ups.

Extended Care
  • Currently offered 1 days a week
  • 5 children maximum
  • 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Extended Care is offered either by pre-registration or walk on. Children enjoy supervised lunch and free play with the teacher.

"I love Kiddie Kampus because it offers my children the opportunity to develop critical relationship and problem solving skills in a fun, nurturing, safe, and creative environment. I also love that I get to be part of that experience with them!"
