ABOUT US

Kids Depot Childcare

Kids Depot Childcare, a State Licensed facility, is a community of professional teachers and support staff. We are dedicated to nurturing the spirit of the young children in our care and providing them and their families with a loving, safe, educational, and Christian environment. Through teaching them the goodness of God and God's love for each individual, we encourage them to be kind and considerate, and stewards of God's creation. The center is a Christian-oriented, non-denominational, outreach of Calvary Gospel Church.

Our Philosophy

Kids Depot's purpose is to provide a half-day or a full-day program, which will help children:

  • Learn basic Christian values
  • Develop skills that foster a sense of competence
  • Feel loved as a unique and special person
  • Develop positive ways of interacting with children and adults

At the same time, the program strives to meet the needs of families by:

  • Providing a safe place where their child can be cared for while they are elsewhere
  • Providing the children with a nutritional breakfast, lunch and snack each day
  • Providing professional, competent, loving adults who understand the developmental needs of young children
  • Helping their child grow and develop at an appropriate pace, beginning at the child's current developmental level
  • Providing opportunities to meet with the staff to discuss their child's progress
  • Providing avenues for parental input into the Center's policies and programs

 

Curriculum

Kids Depot is currently using Creative Curriculum and Teaching Strategies Gold as our curriculum and assessment tool. We also stress Christian principles and values.

Activities

A developmentally appropriate program schedule is planned to provide a flexible balance of active and quiet play, individual and group activities and indoor and outdoor activities with a separate play area for children under the age of two.

Child Guidance

The main purpose of the child guidance policy is to encourage each child to grow and develop as a social being and to achieve a secure environment in which the child and staff can interact. The welfare and safety of all children at the center is always an important consideration.

Parent Involvement

Parents are welcome to visit at any time. Kids Depot has an open door policy. Parents are also invited along on field trips, and to eat lunch with their child’s class.

Hours Of Operation

Kids Depot is open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Closed on weekends and Holidays.

Ages Served

Kids Depot serves children age 6 weeks through age 5 during the school year and through age 10 during the summer. The center is licensed for 75 children.
