Preschool and Child Care in Bloomington and in Normal
Katie’s Kids Learning Centers serve children from six weeks to six years old with full-time and part-time child care. We provide quality daycare and preschool classes in a home-like and professional environment. We believe that warm, supportive, and stimulating settings enable us to best meet the needs of each child at our centers. Each child in our care will experience an environment that is creative, energetic, and fun.
Katie’s Kids Mission
Our Mission at Katie's Kids Learning Center is to elevate child development to a new level by leading the social, emotional growth, and education of young children while providing a safe, welcoming, home-like environment with a caring, educated and professional staff that promotes partnerships with parents, children and other early childhood professionals.
The Reggio Approach
The Reggio Emilia Approach is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.
Silver Circle of Quality
The Silver Circle of Quality recognizes that the program has met quality goals. Silver Circle programs meet or go beyond quality standards in three areas: learning environment and teaching quality; administrative standards; and training & education. Programs are actively engaged in continuous quality improvement.
The National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs (NAC) is a national accreditation program that was developed for early care and educational programs that are used to promote professionalism and quality in child care.
From Farm to Fork Nutrition
One of the most basic requirements of any child care program is to provide adequate nourishment for each child. Katie’s Kids offers well-rounded and nutritious meals (breakfast and lunch) and an afternoon snack.
