Our Mission

To Teach Children the Joy of Learning

Every dream for a better tomorrow has to have a basis of reality, a place to start. It’s one thing to have visions of grandeur and another to actually begin walking towards that end. And regardless of whether that is a hope of a better world, or our child becoming a successful professional, musician, or skilled in trade – if the plan is flawed in the beginning – the end result will be potentially minimized or even in jeopardy. And that is the very sad case for many children today who are placed in pre-school programs and childcares that have at best clouded, if not missed the mark completely. For the most critical part in laying the foundation for success in school and therefore later in life – is joy. If we were not enJOYing the experience – the effort was either relatively short lived, or we were completely unhappy while trying to endure the misery. Either way, and in more ways than one – it was painful and an emotional withdrawal. In the end, it was a bad memory and something we likely vowed we would never do again. Now, is that really what a parent wants their kids to feel and experience during the most formative years of their lives? To learn to hate the very skill and process that will play such a huge factor in determining the success and happiness of their entire lives? Of course not! KiddieKidz does not only not recommend such a ridiculous beginning to your child’s education – but we emphatically warn against it! In fact, for whatever reason, if your child is unable to enroll in a KiddieKidz Center, please find one that places the emphasis on ‘Teaching Your Child the Joy of Learning’. For there are few required foundations in the overall development of your child that are as critical as the love and ‘joy of learning’. For the continual hunger for more knowledge will elevate their opportunity for success through the roof. Just as teaching a child to dread the thought of going to school will greatly hinder the possibility of them ever reaching their true potential. Kids are just that – kids. They love to play and have fun, and the more they enjoy learning, the more the will want to learn more and more – for the rest of their lives!
