Kids Connection has been more then a day-care for our daughters - it has been a second home. The teachers and staff are always kind, helpful and very nurturing. We only have one more daughter left at Kids Connection, but the structure in the classrooms has allowed her to thrive. She comes home every day excited to share her day with us. I definitely have a piece of mind every day when I drop her off, that she is in great hands.
Main Center – All 3 of my children have participated in child care services at Kids Connection. They have all enjoyed going. The variety of activities and field trips, along with the supportive environment has been wonderful. The teachers are compassionate and easy to talk with. My children has developed great friendships there, and I have found a place that I can trust leaving my kids at.
Summer program – My boys have LOVED the summer program through Kids Connection. The frequency and variety of field trips were fantastic. The teachers are young and energetic, and were able to keep up with the needs of the program.
Using the text format from Margaret Wise Brown's The Important Book (FYI: this author also wrote the beloved books, Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny) the following is my perspective regarding Kids Connection and my girls.
The most important thing about Kids Connection is...that all staff bring sunshine to the lives of children.
From the first day our girls entered Kids Connection, they were welcomed lovingly with open arms.
The compassion and heart-felt nurture provided by all is comforting as I spend my days with sixth graders and our girls spend their days at Kids Connection.
The understanding that each child is accepted for who he/she is and encouraged to blossom and bloom as he/she is developmentally able is evident at all times.
The consistency and stability in the daily schedules while still recognizing the need to "seize the moment" reveals the flexibility of the staff.
The security codes to enter the building, despite the fact that they provide a personal daily challenge, let us know our children are safe.
The welcoming greetings at morning drop-off, when at times our children are tentative, make the transition from home to school so much easier.
The diversity of age-appropriate activities (encompassing fine-motor skills, gross motor skills, listening, speaking, cooperation, field trips, to name a few) scattered throughout each day provide our children with a plethora of opportunities.
The worthwhile community outreach projects throughout the year signify the awareness of the world around us and help children and adults, alike, make connections beyond themselves.
But, the most important thing about Kids Connection is...that all staff bring sunshine to the lives of children.

We have been very pleased with our son’s experiences at Kids Connection. He started at the center at 21 months old, and since then has grown tremendously in language skills and socialization with other children and teachers. I always feel that he is in a safe environment where he has the opportunity for both structured activities and free play.
My son is 11 years old and attends summer camp at Kids Connections. He is at that age where it is hard to entertain him without some sort of electronic game/device, TV, etc. My son thoroughly enjoys attending this summer camp program and has even expressed interest in going again next year. They offer so many field trips and fun activities, so it’s great that their program entertains the younger school-age children as well as older!
