What is Preschool? 

Preschool is NOT daycare.  Preschool, also known as nursery school, is the education that precedes kindergarten.  A typical preschool setting is a classroom that enhances learning by offering educational stations, play centers, and an outdoor play area.  

Our preschool program is a half day program that runs September to mid June.  Our mission is to prepare your child for kindergarten by offering pre-literacy skills, pre-math skills, and letter recognition.

My grandson went to Miss Crystal’s and he is now almost 12. When Kyle saw Miss Crystal just a few months ago in a store (in line) he went up and gave her a Big Hug. He had wonderful memories there and still talks about Miss Crystal and Miss JoJean

Both of my daughters have had the privilege of attending Kids Count Learning Center. The teachers are trustworthy, caring, and supportive to ensure the best learning environment for children.

My oldest daughter is 15 years old and attended two years with her teachers, Miss Crystal and Miss Jo-Jean. She was a very timid little girl. As educators, these two ladies were always patient, understanding, and ready to hug. I never doubted leaving my child in their care.
Now, my second daughter is loving Kids Count. She immediately responded to the positive, gentle teachers and environment that Kids Count has always shown children. She is learning educational, developmental, and social skills in a fun, safe environment. I highly recommend Kids Count Learning Center because it is a place where children feel safe, loved, and happy!
