Curious Kids Services


All Curious Kids programs provide a safe and nurturing environment for the children in our community! We are honored to partnership with our parents to ensure that each child is enriched through their experiences here at Curious Kids.

TRANSITION PROGRAM - This program offers quality child care for children 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 years of age who have not completed toilet training. The staff will work with the children and parents to completely toilet train the children, at which time they will move up to the Preschool Age Child Care program.

CURIOUS KIDS PRESCHOOLPreschool is for children who are 3 and 4 and potty trained.  Both Safe Harbor (full day) and Bright Beacon (half day) classrooms concentrate on the nine areas of development and learning; cognitive, social-emotional, physical, literacy, language, mathematics, science, social studies and the arts.  Screenings and assessments are completed on all children.  Families will be invited to conferences twice a year. Our goal is for all children to leave our program fully prepared for Kindergarten or Young 5s.
