The Garden Room is where our youngest children start their world of adventure. They must be potty trained by the time they start school. They will develop one of the most important social skills in life; learning to cope and thrive in an environment away from their home. This is also where they will practice how to get along with others and how to begin to solve social conflicts. The Garden Room is a cozy yet colorful, energetic, activity-filled environment that mimics a home.
The Sun Room is home to our three and four-year-olds, where their attention span develops as the school year progresses. We practice working and playing cooperatively to develop our social and emotional skills and to learn how to self-regulate strong four-year-old feelings. Our teachers help to guide children through conflicts with the goal of fostering personal responsibility and independent problem-solving.
The Bungalow is home to our four and five year olds, the older children of Kid Works. By this age the children are building on their experience and knowledge to be able to dive deeper into topics of interest. There are more collaborative projects which enable children to practice planning, negotiating, problem solving, and thinking critically. The older children often become mentors to the younger children which builds confidence and deepens their own learning.
Mindfulness & Yoga
We are proud and honored to be able to offer our children Mindfulness and Yoga practice here at Kid Works once a week.
Research shows the importance and growing need for more mindfulness in education. Our belief is that if we can introduce it to children early in their lives, it will become a very natural and healthy way of life.
Our optional Summer Session takes place from the end of June to the end of August. We can enroll children who are no older than 6 during the time they are here.

From our Parents and Students
My son has been at Kid Works for going on two years. They have taught him so many life skills and problem solving skills. I am so proud of how much he has grown socially and intellectually. He has been in all the classrooms and all the educators have treated him with so much respect and care. They act as a family unit there and treat my son like family. It’s important to my family that he was able to explore the world as he wanted to and at Kid Works he had that freedom. There he works his body and his brain. Even though it’s isn’t an ABC 123 school he has still learned his letters and numbers through play. It has been the best experience for us all. – Carolina V.
We truly cannot say enough great things about Kid Works. The philosophy, the director, the approach to learning, the classes & outdoor areas, and the staff – everything and everyone is exactly what and who I want my child around. They do such an amazing job meeting the children where they are…and for a mama with a kiddo that needs emotional help to feel comfortable in new settings (even a year later some days!) the teachers are warm, responsive and willing to do whatever it takes to make her feel good and safe. My child has absolutely thrived at Kid Works. I have toured many preschools in the area and I really feel lucky to be able to send my children here. We currently have our 4.5 year old in Kid Works and plan to send our 2nd child when she’s just under 3! – Lindsey M.
Kid Works is the best! We have been so pleased with everything about the school. All the teachers and staff truly seem to enjoy what they do and caring for the children. Over the past year plus that our daughter has been attending Kid Works, she has really blossomed and developed an amazing sense of self. This is undoubtedly thanks to the amazing care and guidance she has received at Kid Works. The outdoor space of the school is awesome and the program philosophy really allows the children to explore their creativity. There is also a great sense of community among the families that attend. In short, I love Kid Works! – Christen C.
Kid Works has been a wonderful experience for my family. The individual love and support the children receive there is second to none. I am grateful that we found Kid Works many years ago and would recommend it to anyone. – Erin U.
I’m sad. I miss my friends at school. I love that school.
Both my children attended Kid Works and loved it. Their program is the best and provides age appropriate skills for preschoolers to learn and grow. The staff and facility are amazing and the schedule is also great for working families. My boys have thrived at Kid Works and being part of this community has been a true gift to our family.
We discovered Kid Works from a friend and have loved the experience. The staff feel like family and it’s hard to get my son to leave in the evening. He is free to be dirty and encouraged to be hands on with all of the various and ever changing activities. There is a garden growing vegetables, water stations, pet bunnies, pet birds, and pet rats..etc. One day my parents came to pick up my son and he was busing his own dishes from snack time. He immediately came home and wanted to help with our dishes. Things like this are ever day events at Kid Works. We are so happy our friend recommended this wonderful preschool.
Awesome school, awesome teachers, awesome owner. My son attended here when he was 3 years old. The school opened up his imagination and artistic skills. He is now 6 and doing great in Kinder. Our second child, who is 3 years old, now attends Kid Works and loves it even more. This place is a must visit if you are looking for a place that will care for your toddlers.
