The health and safety of our Kid Country children, families and teachers is at the heart of all of our new COVID related procedures! We were so excited to re-open our doors in May 2020 and get back to the business of providing love and early education to our community’s children, so we’ve revised a lot of our procedures to help us do what we love safely!
Kid Country Childcare believes that young children learn best when they are given choices to participate in activities that interest them and are allowed to follow-through with these choices for appropriate lengths of time. In other words, children learn by playing! Play is a necessary and integral part of childhood. We believe that all areas of a child’s development should be part of the curriculum, as each area affects the other. This integrated approach to curriculum allows children to learn through themes and relevant context...
In October 2015, Kid Country Childcare earned the Silver Circle of Quality designation from ExceleRate Illinois, the state’s quality recognition and improvement system for early learning and development providers. ExceleRate Illinois recognizes a program’s commitment to quality beyond the basic state licensing requirements...
We believe that the child’s parents and teachers, curriculum and materials all play a part in the child’s growth and development. We believe that children need to be in an environment that allows them to feel safe and secure, along with promoting their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
Kid Country Childcare’s purpose is to provide a safe, secure place where young children can achieve appropriate social behaviors and develop cognitively and physically, along with promoting independence and self-help skills.
