The Kids Bay Learning Center
The Kids Bay Learning Center is a private preschool and infant/toddler center serving the needs of the area’s most discriminating families. The state-of-the-art school was built to accommodate 145 children ages six weeks through Kindergarten. The beautifully-designed, child-friendly facility is situated on 1.74 acres of uniquely landscaped grounds and includes a nature walking trail, a grassy area in which to run and play, children’s vegetable gardens, two custom playhouses, and a sandbox with “pure safe sand.” The school also sports a large pirate ship climbing structure and a splash zone for water activities.
The program is a traditional play-based preschool that addresses children’s physical, social/emotional, and cognitive development. Weekly lesson plans include large and small group activities in the following curriculum areas: language and literature, math and science, art and sensory exploration, physical education and health, dramatic play and construction, and computer education. Extra-curricular classes also offered include Spanish, Music, Gymnastics, Sports, and Science Club.
Members of the teaching staff are chosen not only for their education and experience, but for their warmth, compassion, and dedication to the field of early childhood education. They pride themselves in providing lessons that encourage children’s hands-on participation and critical thinking skills. The goal is to maximize each child’s individual strengths, provide encouragement for acquiring new skills and concepts, and instill a lifelong love of learning.
The Kids Bay is also committed to giving back to the community, and helping children experience the joy that comes from helping others. Recent activities have included: a hop-a-thon to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, adopting military families for the holidays, and hosting a Children’s Art Show benefiting Make-A-Wish.
A family friendly school, The Kids Bay welcomes parents into the classrooms. Additionally, after-hours events are planned throughout the year to bring the community together for fun and socialization.
