Setting up your child for elementary school success

early learning for children AGES 3-5 YEARS OLD

Building up their life-skills one day at a time...

We create an environment for rich learning, making friends, and exciting adventures.

By introducing subjects like math, literacy, science, and art, we develop key skills to help your child become an intelligent, creative thinker. Not to mention, they’ll make incredible friends and lifelong memories! 

You’ll be amazed at how imaginative and brilliant your child becomes by the end of the year!

We provide a variety of engaging play-centered exercises as the foundation for early learning.

Exploring new horizons

We care for about 20 children per room, with 10-12 children per caregiver ( 1:10 ratio for 3-year-olds; 1:12 ratio for 4-and-5-year-olds). These ratios give us the opportunity to still serve a handful of students preparing for kindergarten in a meaningful way. 

Individualized Support & Small Classroom Sizes

Our goal is to equip your child to become a bright learner well before their first day of kindergarten. We include lessons around math, literacy, science, technology, and social studies to develop their cognitive and creative skills.

Curriculum-Based Learning

Any Physical Requirements? To best support your child in this classroom setting, students must be potty trained (unless your child has an IEP or note from a medical professional).

We love to splash around and get soaked by the sprinklers during the summertime. Laughter, dancing out the sillies, and some imaginative play are the perfect ingredients for some cool summer fun!

kind words from our families

- Arik Pynaert

[He] was able to learn, grow and be ready for kindergarten. His teacher was by far the best thing that could have happened with my son regarding child care. She was warm and engaging and truly showed that she cared about all the children in the classroom. 

“My oldest son thrived when we sent him to Just Us Kids.”

- Ashley Brohm

 I’ve also loved watching my daughter become so independent and such a great listener.

“My son's Pre-K graduation ceremony last year was so amazing to watch!”

- Tara Flook

I feel like the teachers set him up for success in their Pre-K class. He still talks about Pre-K and I feel like he thrived and is doing awesome in school 

My oldest child has done so well in Kindergarten this year!

It starts by cultivating their path to learning and curiosity about the world around them. Ready to start the path together?

We’re excited to explore your child’s potential with you!
