Parma Kids Preschool & Child Care Center
Our Philosophy of Education
We believe all children want to learn and can thrive in a loving, secure environment. We provide a Christian learning classroom that is non-sectarian.
We teach Bible stories and songs about Jesus along with traditional educational teaching such as letters, writing, colors, numbers and shapes throughout the units of study. We also believe children should be given the opportunity to express themselves through art, music, literature and drama.

The preschool program is tuition-based. The first payment is a double payment for September and June. Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments. Students may choose to attend 1-5 days a week. Tuition is paid monthly and due on the 1st of the month and considered late after the 5th of the month. A $20 late fee is added to the account after the 5th.
We strive to keep tuition as low as possible, so we have multiple fundraiser opportunities for everyone to participate in throughout the year. These fundraiser add the additional funds needed to keep our center thriving.
