Facility and Benefits

Our Facility



The facility offers a great deal of indoor and outdoor space for children to explore their daily world, with vast areas to move about. The entrance to the school is an elegant lobby featuring unique craftsmanship, elevated ceilings, and a cozy sitting area decorated with the children’s personal art work. The passageway from the lobby into the classroom corridors takes you to our very own sanctuary. We like to think of this area as the central heartbeat and hub of our school. It creates a peaceful and serene feeling as one takes a moment with a child, and imagines what the day will bring. As you gaze up into the elevated octagon ceiling your view is endless clouds in the sky created and painted by local artist, Emery Clark. A touch of Claude Monet’s soft colors and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel’s magical wonder combined to provide the children with a sense of tranquility in time. All of the colors used in the school have been carefully selected from the latest research. These colors promote calmness within children, which in turn have been found to enhance feelings of confidence and competence. The setting therefore presents a higher quality learning environment.

 

At Planet Kids, we envision pre-school as an exciting adventure in learning for your child. Our primary mission is to provide a fun and nurturing climate for your child to grow and learn.

To that end, we present children with developmentally age-appropriate programs that emphasize physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual growth. We encourage our children through positive reinforcement, which fosters development of their self-esteem and self-confidence. And we celebrate each child’s success so that he or she is able to grow into creative, independent thinkers and lifelong learners.
