Parents drop children off in the morning between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. The children are fed a light breakfast before school.
Children are picked up from school and given a snack at the center. Children need to be picked up by 7 p.m. to avoid late pick up charges.
Children are instructed to work on their homework after school. We have trained staff that assist the children with homework question, checks the childs homework for completion and accuracy, and provide one-on-one tutoring as needed. We have a separate area for one-on-one tutoring and a computer lab.

INFANTS AND TODDLERS PROGRAM
Our infant/toddler program focuses on learning and development with a great curriculum. Our classroom areas are specifically designed to give your child the best environment for individual development.
At this early age of growth, it is commonly perceived that if the basic needs are met--clean, dry, and fed--your child is in a good environment. The first years of an infant life are crucial. Our qualified staff pay close, individual attention to each child; even feeding and diapering builds trust and security. We encourage our infants and toddlers the opportunity to explore and engage their curiosities with a variety of manipulative play, which helps develop their fine motor skills and coordination.
In our Infant/Toddler program, we talk, talk, talk, move to your child's level to make eye contact, read, and sing every day.
Our program is designed to nurture, teach and lay a foundation for success for the children in our care. The curriculum is filled with educational elements to assist children as they begin their educational journey. The schedule includes independent and teacher guided activities. At this age our children are introduced to the alphabet, numbers and counting, shapes, and colors and these learning elements are taught on a daily basis. Children also participate in circle time twice a day, where they discuss their topics they are exposed to in their learning units and where they review basis learning concepts. Our days are filled with discovery areas that provide opportunities for creative and imaginative play, including: Lots of Joy, Computers, Art, Blocks, Discovery, Dramatic Play, Library, Music and Movement, and Outdoor Play. Nutritious meals and snacks are also served daily to encourage healthy eating habits. All pre-school students are required to wear uniforms. The uniforms consist of khaki/tan bottoms pants or skirts, and red shirts/blouses.
At The KIdz Factory, LLC, each child's safety is paramount, therefore all our facilities are equipped with security, fire alarms, and a monitored security system. Each class area is monitored by a CCTV system. Entry into the facility is obtained through a camera monitored entry system.
