Programs Available at Kidz Kabana
Kidz Kabana recognizes that the first two years of a child’s life lay the groundwork for future development. It is a critical time for brain and language development. From birth, babies are active learners and immediately curious about their world. With that in mind, Kidz Kabana provides a safe environment full of possibilities in dramatic play, sensory/art, curiosities, construction, literacy, music, and movement. Young babies will spend their day enjoying plenty of one-on-one time in a rich, caring environment. Also, parents and teachers will establish a personal care plan for each child to ensure the expectations and routines of the child and family are met.
- Ages: 6 weeks – 12 months
- Ages: 12-months – 24 months
- Ages: 3 – 5 years
Flex Care and Hourly Drop-In
Flex care is a program available for families who need unlimited vacation time, different number of days each week, and/or different days each week. The program works well with parents working rotating schedules. Parents can sign up for days needed, and Kidz Kabana will provide care based on availability. Preschool children two and up will participate in the hourly playroom or the preschool classroom, dependent on space and availability. Space is always guaranteed for our flex care children who are two and up. Infants and toddler space may be declined due to limited space, but Kidz Kabana does work hard to support flex care schedules for this age group.
