Q: What makes Island Kids different from other Early Childhood Programs?
A: The difference at Island Kids is that we are family owned and operated with owners on site each day to ensure your child is receiving the highest quality care possible! As working parents of 4 young children, we truly understand how difficult it is to be a parent in today’s world.
Unlike larger franchised centers, your child is not just a number at Island Kids. Our administrators strive to get to know each and every child and their family in order to be able to provide a more personalized experience. We are here to celebrate your child’s successes and to help you through the struggles.
We put a lot of emphasis on continuing education for our employees and continue to encourage and support them in this area so that we always stay current in the field of early childhood education.
