What is KidsPark?
We are a unique childcare solution.
A family favorite for years, our hourly childcare centers for preschool and school age children offer a safe and fun play space that is available without reservations. Drop in days, evenings and weekends whenever you need childcare. Unlike traditional centers, use KidsPark on your schedule and pay as you go.
So, next time you need backup care or to keep appointments, run errands, attend school or meetings, tend to business or an ailing family member, go shopping, enjoy an evening out, or just to relax and re-energize…. KidsPark is the answer.
We play all day everyday.
Our play components promote cooperation, socialization, listening skills and motor development. Kids choose:
- Arts and Crafts
- Hourly Games
- Sensory Exploration
- Hands-on Science
- Special themed days
Kids aren't the only ones who love us.
KidsPark staff is energetic, creative and enjoy interacting with children and presenting fun activities. They are:
- certified in First Aid and CPR
- screened by the Department of Justice
- trained in Early Childhood Education and Recreation
- required to attend staff development and skill building workshops
KidsPark exceeds state licensing requirements by providing an average teacher-child ratio of 1:8. In addition, there is always at least 2 staff members on site at all times. If a child needs one-on-one attention, another teacher is available to the group.
Parents like our floor plan because:
- it allows for continuous teacher observation ensures a safe and secure environment
- customers can always see the exciting activities their children are engaged in at KidsPark
- gates are equipped with audio alarms to alert the staff of children entering or leaving the play area
- our proprietary computerized check-in and out system identifies people authorized to pick up your children and to make note of allergies or special needs
Our centers are an invitation for fun!
