•   Welcome to Kids Corner School Age Childcare!

  • Our Philosophy 

    Kids Corner has provided quality care in a warm and nurturing atmosphere since 1982. We seek to meet each child’s emotional, social, and developmental needs through numerous activities in STEM, arts and crafts, large motor, social emotional learning, and charity work. Throughout the summer, we continue that learning and sense of community through weekly field trips, nursing home visits, and working with Age to Age.

    Kids Corner is a fun and safe place for your child to spend quality time. Our program provides a caring, compassionate and challenging environment, positive group experiences, behavioral expectations, and freedom of individual choice.
    Please call us and we can set up a tour of our facility.
