Two Little Kids Reading a Book and a Gift Card

Affordable Child Care

Kids 1st utilizes a creative curriculum which encourages children to learn through play. Did you know that young children learn while they play? Providing your child with a variety of play experiences will help him or her develop many important skills. Playing with blocks helps a child discover concepts about size, weight, and shape.

Playing simple games helps a child learn to follow directions and cooperate with others. Puzzles help a child develop eye-hand coordination and learn to complete tasks. Playing "pretend helps a child develop language skills and use imagination. Scribbling with crayons helps a child prepare to write. Playing outdoors can help a child develop coordination and balance. We have openings for all ages,  and reasonable rates. Positions available for experienced child care professionals; call for details .
