Children who enter Kid Cove will develop and learn through fun and creativity. We play, we learn, and we grow at Kid Cove. Convenience of full day childcare or daily half day preschool allow families the flexibility and availability of childcare in the High Country. We are dedicated to ensuring all children are loved, nurtured and taught in developmentally appropriate ways. Enriching a child's mind through teachings that include cognitive, emotional/social, physical and language concepts ensures that each child has a foundation for learning to his/her highest potential. Strengthening children, families and the community is a priority of Kid Cove. We believe well rounded education starts with a well rounded preschool experience. We can't wait for you to join us at Kid Cove!
