The WhizKidz Story
Welcome to Whiz Kidz Preschool, when you join us, you’re joining a community, a school family. We are so much more than just childcare. We strive to create a safe place for children to grow and thrive; as well as offer parents the convenience of all-inclusive care and foster a place for parents to meet and create a support system to navigate parenting together.
What sets Whiz Kidz apart is that our play based curriculum and environments are intentionally planned so that children are scaffolded into new learning opportunities. Our program considers the whole child not just mind. We do that by reciting our daily positive affirmations, gratitude prayer before meals, conscious discipline principles, social emotional awareness, as well as including learning experiences not just structured activities.
Our weekly enrichment classes include Gardening, Music, PE, Cooking and Art/Tinkering, offer ample opportunities for children to explore their own expression and creativity.
