Our Short Story

Kidz First started out as “Mother’s Day Out” in 1989.  The program began as a safe place where moms could drop their child(ren) off for a few hours a day and quickly turned into a full-time daycare.  In 1993 we felt the calling to start a Christian based preschool for our community.  The desire to nurture, care for and encourage healthy development in children has spanned over 28 years.  All of our teachers have worked for Kidz First for at least 20 years.
