Hear from our parents

I like everything. The staff is great, my kids come home singing songs, and it definitely feels like their brains and personalities are growing, stretching, and strengthening.
Gregory L., Columbia

Very organized and feeds my kid healthy food.
Amanda W., Columbia

Fintastic teachers, excellent curriculum!
Chen C., Columbia

Very warm, welcoming, and nurturing
Mary S., Columbia

The teachers and staff really care about the families. They’re very warm, attentive and “on” at all times. We also love the school because the children learn a lot through play: songs, drawing, storytelling, etc. I think these kids will be overqualified for kindergarten!
Paula L., Columbia

The KAC Admin, teachers and really the entire staff is kind and obviously cares about my son. Additionally, the educational value is unmatched! Our 2-year old is constantly surprising us with lessons he learns at school. Family members are always shocked by what he knows at his age. I give KAC 100% of the credit…
Michele H., Columbia

The teachers are wonderful!
Jessica C., Columbia

Great school filled with loving educators who care for the children as they are their own
Maryam J., Columbia
