Kerri's Kidsville Preschool & Babyville LLC
At KKB we use Creative Curriculum.  A new lesson plan is posted in each classroom each week.  CC focuses on the teacher's role in how infants and children develop and learn, the learning environment, what children learn, and the caregiver's role in the process.  This is provided through blocks, dramatic play, toys and games, art, library, discovery, sand and water, music and movement, cooking, computers, and outdoor activities. 
Daily sheets are completed by full time day teachers and part time afternoon teachers so you know everything about your infant's /child's day!

  1. The majority of our professional staff family have been with the center for six to eight years-one infant caregiver has been with KKB since the facility opened in 2002. The afternoon staff are Elementary Education majors that remain until they graduate. All staff family have a true desire for each infant and preschooler to feel secure and thrive.
Objectives and Philosophy
KKB is a professional facility designed with a child's comfort, needs, and enjoyment in mind.  the child-oriented facility will provide fun, educational activites and opportunities for which children may involve themselves. Activities will be available for group interaction or solitary play.  All activities will have educational merit. 
We provide a fun, secure, away-from-home experience for every enrolled infant and child.  Areas of interest will range from alphabet, counting, shapes, color, science, art activities, dramatic play, and fine and gross motor activites.  The learning and play activities will be presented in a learning center concept as well as more individualized table activities.  Caregiver interaction and involvement with the children will be as much a part of the program as are toys and educational stimuli.
Some non-denominational matrials will be used in the afternoon lesson and prayer will be said before eating. ("God is great, God is good, let us thank Him for our food").  If you prefer your child not participate in the lesson and/or prayer please let the owner/director know.

    Healthy Meals
    We serve breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. We participate in the CAFP. The owner will not serve chicken nuggets, fish sticks, or hot dogs. We do serve fresh vegetables and fruit from our garden and even couscous! We serve family style meals with the teachers sitting with the children and the children serving themselves. They put up their plates, spoons, and cups when they are finished. They do a great job!
