Each child then makes a “mailbox,” so the children can practice “reading” or “matching” skills and mail each valentine in the correct mailbox. Children and staff are encouraged to wear red, pink and white to school on party day. Parents are encouraged to bring in goodies for their child to share with classmates.
Halloween Parties: The children are encouraged to wear costumes to KWLC. Each class parades through the other classrooms showing off their costumes. Parents bring in treats to share. We make “Magic” punch using dry ice. The children especially enjoy being magicians as the steam slowly moves from the witch’s cauldron. Lunch is served with orange and black items, such as mandarin oranges, “worm” sandwiches and black milk.
Christmas Parties: Santa comes to visit KWLC and brings in gifts. Each child has the opportunity to sit in Santa’s lap and talk to him. (Santa enjoys sitting on the floor so the toddlers can approach him!) We take pictures of the children to share with parents who aren’t able to attend the parties. The children are also invited to bring in a gift for a gift exchange. Red and green goodies are served for snack.
We offer a variety of extra activities throughout the year.
4th of July Parade and Picnic: We believe that patriotism is a part of every child’s life from infancy. We say the Pledge of Allegiance each morning prior to coming inside for our academic preschool time. We play patriotic music throughout the year. We decorate trikes, flags, noisemakers and children with red, white and blue for our annual 4th of July parade. We culminate the day with a BBQ of hot dogs, potato chips and watermelon. Parents, grandparents, siblings and friends are invited.
Prekindergarten Graduation: Each May we hold a special ceremony for all of our “little graduates” complete with cap and gown.
Pajama Day: All of the children are invited to wear pj’s to school. This is usually done in the winter to offer a break from rainy day routine and a “G” rated movie is shown.
Bike and Trike Day: In May of each year we have a fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. All of the children are invited to bring in a bike or trike and a helmet to participate in a trike-a-thon. St. Jude’s provides literature to be shared with the children about bike and trike safety.
Fun Fridays: During the summer months (on alternating Fridays) we ask that each child come to KWLC in old, grubby clothes, so they can participate in extremely messy projects. Examples are foot painting, painting the slide with a bouncing ball and body painting. Teachers are each asked to plan special activities and they look forward to these days as much as the children do. (Please note: We do a variety of other messy projects throughout the year on a daily basis, using paint shirts to save clothing)
These are a sampling of the many activities we have at KWLC throughout the year. We always welcome parent participation and encourage new ideas to be shared.

"This program is AWESOME! I can honestly say this is by far the best daycare/preschool/after school program you can ever hope for, when sending your kids out into the world and rely on teachers to take care of them! No need to worry when it comes to this center! They are always loving, caring, and fully engaged in your child's well-being! I trust, love, and respect all the work they do! My two girls have attended Kids' World Learning Center for over four years, and I can say I AM A PROUD PARENT OF KIDS' WORLD!"
"My kids have been going to Kids' World for four years. The facilities are always clean, the teachers are gentle, caring, and sweet and my daughters love them all! I loved KWLC so much, there was no doubt what childcare I was going to use when I had my second daughter. The facilities are so good and all the teachers there eased my mind when it came to determining if I was going to use the facilities for my infant child! I have no complaints! My daughters, ages 5 and 2, love the school and the teachers, and I'm right along with them!"
