Kids are important to God, and they are also important to us! Since the learning process is set in motion in early childhood, we want to provide an academic program that enhances intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical growth of children. Learning experiences appropriate for the developmental age of each group are provided. Kids Express Preschool is a program for children 2 yrs - 5 yrs of age.
We have a well-planned curriculum that provides a monthly teaching theme and set targets around which activities are organized. Our #1 goal is for our kids to love to come to school and love to learn. We purposefully plan activities that are lots of fun!
Our rooms are arranged into play/learning centers where children rotate for individual and small group activities.
Since we believe children need to have a good, uplifting environment, positive guidance techniques are used by the teachers.
Our teachers have many years experience working with children. They are required to receive training hours which also includes holding certification in Child CPR & First Aid.
Extensive background checks for each teacher are required to insure your child’s safety. Cleared national background checks are kept on file for all staff.
We offer teacher : child ratios that meet and exceed the current state regulations. We believe that two teachers per class provides the safest environment for both teachers and students.
Two-year old classes have 14 students/class. All other classes have 16 students/class.
If you are interested in enrolling your child, please contact our office at Bethel Church in Richland to complete the registration card and required paperwork. Children will enter the program on a first-come, first-served basis.
For any questions you may have, please call the Kids Express office at (509) 628-2055.
