Welcome to Kids First Preschool and Kindergarten

Our program is developed from a sincere love for children and the desire to aid in their academic development.  Our mission is to provide a developmental program of activities and experiences through which children can learn and grow in a happy, positive atmosphere.  We make each learning activity fun and game like, challenging but not frustrating and a multi-sensory experience.  Our program will build academic and social skills, as well as feelings of accomplishment and confidence.

Parent Testimonials

  • "The moment I walked into Kids First I knew this was the preschool for my son, Jack. He had never gone to daycare, or been left with anyone outside of our home for any length of time, so I wanted a preschool that was friendly, nurturing, creative, inspiring and fun. Kids First not only lived up to my high expectations, but has far exceeded my hopes. Everything Kids First does is with the happiness and education of our kids in mind. They learn letters, shapes and words, experience sign language, Spanish and music, enjoy so many events around different holidays, have visits from Wonders of Wildlife and firefighters and do the most amazing arts and crafts. Ultimately, what sets Kids First apart is the people. Jack speaks not only of the teachers in his classroom, but also of his happy experiences with Leah, the Director, and the teachers in other classes. Kids First is a family and they put the kids first in everything. I couldn’t recommend this preschool more highly."

  • "Kids First has been such a blessing to our family!  We did a lot of searching before arriving at Kids First, but nothing seemed to feel just right. Then we toured Kids First and could easily imagine our son fitting in great there.  Our son's transition to preschool was a wonderful experience thanks to Leah's leadership, the amazing teachers, a loving environment, and the high-quality curriculum."

  • "We have absolutely loved Kids First for our daughter.  We have been at Kids First for three years and each teacher she has had has been completely fantastic!  While we are so happy she is very well prepared for Kindergarten, we are even happier that she loves school.  She is excited to go to school every day!  We highly recommend Kids First!"
