School Notes

  • Welcome to the Manhattan KinderCare in Manhattan, Kansas. We are very excited to meet with you and your family. We believe in developing the whole child with an emphasis on assisting your child's growth with their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Here at the Manhattan KinderCare, we believe it takes a village to raise a child, and our parent's consider us to be an extension of their families (their village). Your child will not only have a safe, secure, and stimulating environment to learn in, but will have support from a team of child development experts who have a true passion for educating and nurturing children.
  • One of our primary responsibilities is to keep the children in our care healthy and safe from injury and illness. Our Children's health and safety is the responsibility of all staff in our center. This includes managers and teachers as well as kitchen staff and any other person who is in our center. We are a State Licensed Center and follow all state regulations. This includes the training of each and every staff member, making sure that all employees are First Aid and CPR trained. Maintaining the child/teacher ratio is the utmost importance in keeping a safe environment. Making sure that all toys are age appropriate and that our rooms are arranged to prevent any accidents and to allow visibility of our children at all times. Outside time is very important for physical activity of the children. It is also one of the most dangerous times of the day. To prevent any accidents and ensure the children's safety, our teachers arrange themselves so that they can see every inch of the playground. By doing this we minimize the probability of accidents on the playground and making it a safe place for our children.
    We strive to make every parent feel welcome and comfortable in our center. It is important that they feel that they are leaving their children in the care of someone that is going keep them safe and out of danger. With our open door policy we encourage parents to visit or call often (if they need to). Parents feel comfortable with our security entrance and know that we do not let unauthorized people in our center. One way we do this is too check the I.D. of every person other than parents entering our center to pick up a child. Of course this is done only with the written authorization of the parent.
  • Hours Of Operation: 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM, M-F
  • NACCRA - ARMY base is 15 minutes away. ****** NACCRA pays the difference between what we chare versus what on-base child care costs. ****** PLEASE SELL NACCRA! BASE IS VERY CLOSE!
