About Us

For Kids Only is a licensed Developmental Day Facility and has voluntarily met the enhanced standards set forth by the NC Division of Child Development to achieve the highest 5 Star licensure rating.

Our center was founded in 1990 on the theory that childhood development is a process of stages which occurs during a child’s early years. Additionally, all children do not reach the same developmental stage at the same time. Therefore, this school structures all programs to meet each child’s stage of development on an individual basis. Most importantly, we respect parents as the primary provider of care and nurturing for their child. We believe parents and teachers form an important partnership in a child’s development and education.

Our program offers a wide variety of arts & crafts and music, as well as learning & play times which are all implemented by licensed teachers and assistants. All activities are based on Creative Curriculum and allow for each child’s imagination and exploration skills to develop. Our staff to child ratios are extremely low which ensure each child receives the individual attention and nurturing they need to reach their greatest potential.

Most of all, we want each child to have FUN! In the words of Dr. Seuss, “It’s fun to have fun but you have to know how”. We want to teach children to have so much fun while learning… that they learn to love learning. Our team of experienced teachers use the children’s interests and ideas to help create lesson plans and activities. They may transform the classroom environment into a theme park, a camping adventure or a winter wonderland and ice skate on waxed paper through the hallways of the school!

Throughout the year our program incorporates many special events that provide excellent learning and exciting activities for the children. We have our annual Fall Festival, Dr. Seuss week, Summer Youth Activities, Christmas Parade Float, etc…. just to name a few. Parents and families are encouraged to participate in all events.

For Kids Only offers an exciting learning opportunity for children of all ages and abilities!
