KIPS’s goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which children are encouraged to explore their intellectual, emotional and creative capacities through play, communication and physical activity. We foster shared learning by helping children to develop respect for themselves, others, and their world. We provide a warm and accepting environment for children to help them recognize that they are important to us, and their community is there to love and support them.
Further, KIPS provides an opportunity for parents to be involved in their children’s development while they are at school. We believe that parents’ opinion and suggestions are the most valuable source of information for a childcare centre.
Our main goal is to construct and fortify this idea in our centre. To achieve our goal, we have provided a forum for parents to kindly write their ideas, suggestions and comments. Moreover, we invite parents to become members of our parents committee.
We open KIPS with the underlying philosophy to only offer the best and to accept no compromises. It is the guiding principle behind all we do. We provide our services from only one facility due to our firm belief that there is no substitute for direct, personal daily “hands on” interactions with the families we serve.
Although we offer an English program, we expose our children to French and Arabic language to promote their language development. We are here to help them grow and with your help we have no doubt that this goal is easily attainable.
