About

Overview

Welcome to our Nationally Accredited Overland Park South KinderCare! Our school is just east of 69 Highway and north of 150th St., hiding behind the Dairy Queen and Tide Cleaners! Our tenured and educated teachers take pride in ensuring your child is immersed in a loving and nurturing environment that fosters a love of learning. We are more than a daycare and/or child care center; we are a school that has been nationally recognized for providing exceptional curriculum designed to meet each child’s individual needs. According to new data, kindergarten students who experience our high-quality early childhood education were on average four months ahead of their peers nationally. The study was conducted using Terra Nova, a widely used standardized assessment tool. These findings are consistent with other assessments, including previous results from the Maryland Model for School Readiness, which measures the impact that our learning programs have on children. Students enrolled in KinderCare centers for more than one year yielded even higher scores. We invite you to experience the accreditation difference by scheduling a tour at our school!

Health & Safety

Our center is equipped with a built-in keypad entry system. The entry code is changed twice a year and is only released to parents and/or guardians. Only authorized persons are allowed to pick up your child. In the event that your child will be picked up by additional contact, written authorization will be required and a government-issued ID will be required to verify identity before the child can be released. Each child is signed and out at daily and continually monitored throughout the day on our name-to-face attendance sheets. Outdoor play occurs daily, weather permitting. In the event weather conditions prevent outdoor activities, alternative indoor gross-motor activities will be substituted. Our playground is arranged into age-specific areas and is equipped with a seven-foot perimeter rod iron fence. Health and safety is our top priority and we make every attempt to be prepared for any potential emergency situation. We regularly schedule and practice emergency procedures and/or evacuations. In addition, all of our dedicated teachers here are all CPR and First Aid certified.

This center has NAEYC accreditation. National Association for the Education of Young Children is the world's largest organization working on behalf of young children. NAEYC established a national, voluntary accreditation system to set professional standards for early childhood education programs and to help families identify high-quality programs. The NAEYC Accreditation Criteria address all aspects of an early childhood program, including interactions among teachers and children, curriculum, interactions among teachers and families, administration, staff qualifications and professional development, staffing patterns, physical environment, health and safety, nutrition and food service, and program evaluation.
