About Kidzone

 

Mission Statement -  Kidzone will provide childcare in an environment which children will engage in value based, developmentally appropriate, and fun activities that help them develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

Kidzone was founded in 2000, and now operates 2 centers serving over 200 children between the ages of 2 weeks and 12 years. Kidzone Centers are open throughout the year, generally Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., although hours may vary by location.

Kidzone offers services to students, faculty and staff at Lake Michigan College, to the greater Twin Cities area, and to the greater South Haven area. Program philosophy emphasized child initiated learning within a culturally diverse community. Kidzone will use a learning center approach. Children choose the activities that interest them, manipulate the materials available in the center, and become the architects of their own learning. Our learning center approach will allow the children to interact with one another, aiding in the creation of new ideas and new questions. By offering variety, we will ensure each child’s style of learning will be accommodated each day.
