decisions we will make when going off to work, school
or just looking for enrichment for our kids. For Kids
Sake makes your decision easy! Just ask around or

How to Choose Quality Childcare

Creative Lessons

Amazing Playground

Play As You Learn

Mission Statement

For Kids Sake Early Learning Center is an educational child care environment that partners with working families.  Our belief is that every child deserves the chance to participate, learn & grow in a high quality, loving & exciting environment. In this community, parents with be encouraged and supported in celebrating the milestones of their children while developing relationships that last a lifetime.

Background

For Kid’s Sake Early Learning Center was formed because of the growing need for infant, toddler, and pre-school early education in the Livingston County area.  For Kid’s Sake is licensed for 42 children.  The director is on site daily to provide guidance and supervision for the teachers and as a resource for families as well.

Culture

Going forward, For Kids Sake will grow to triple its square footage.  This expansion to our environments will support a larger variety of safe, healthy, high quality materials including updated technology and equipment.  We will thrilled to loosen the reigns of our waiting list to allow more families to be connected to our exclusive community. Additionally, children will be able to participate in year round extra curriculars such as dance, karate, yoga & gymnastics.

Staff will enjoy mostly, the paycheck of the heart that comes from their sincere love for young children.  Past that they will appreciate recognition for the creativity that they bring to teaching, they will be supported in their desire to be lifetime learners and they will reap the monetary benefits that meet the needs of their lifestyle.

Philosophy

FKS believes in a play based learning environment and it uses Creative Curriculum as the program that supports its efforts.  Learning in our space and using these resources encourages both child-initiated and teacher-directed activities. The role of a teacher is to provide developmentally appropriate programming, assess growth, support, educate & communicate with parents.  Their role also includes ensuring that the children’s learning environment is clean, safe and stimulating.

Our Care is the BEST available! WHY are we WORTH IT ?!

For Kids Sake Early Learning Center will have a 15 year old Birthday at the end of this month! At only 3 years old we survived the horrible economy of 2008, we had a building relocation in 2009 and now COVID in 2020. After each challenge, we came out BETTER and this time is NO different! We are looking forward to the growth and its growing pains now and in the next 15 years ahead. Thank you for being on our path!

Here are some of the quality standards and adaptations that have been put in place to assure that you continue to have the most high quality care for your child(ren)/family.

  • Competitive pay to assure that we have highly trained and consistent staff.
  • Collaborative overlapping meeting/training/planning time for staff to ensure organization.
  • Lower (than State recommended) teacher/child ratios assure that children are getting an increase in teaching time. Infants being in a 2/1 ratio is an unheard of practice in child care.
  • Additional staff scheduled to do health screening upon arrival and perform additional cleaning and toy rotation duties daily.
  • Additional staff scheduled to provide simplicity of drop off and pick up at the door.
  • The addition of a, “real” sink into the preschool space (previously we had a portable that was cumbersome & unreliable).
  • Additional dispensers/stations for soap, paper towel & hand sanitizer.
  • Childrens rest time bedding being provided and laundered weekly by FKS.
  • Home made, healthy snacks provided that include fruits and vegetables each day. Milk & bottled water provided readily.
  • Childcare software as an added convenience for parents to be paperless and have child information at your fingertips. Developmental milestones are being tracked and recorded and pictures of real time activities shared.
  • Recognizing NAEYC (National Association of the Education of Young Children) Accreditation Standards and implementing components as a higher quality of care and well being for young children.
  • Weekly at home learning activity suggestions.
  • As we know Phase 3 at this time, you can count on FKS to remain open for approved workers.
  • 3x per week Zoom meetings for pre-schoolers and 1x per week Zoom meetings for school age while we were all away and in the case that we go back to Phase 2.
