Children need healthy, wholesome foods

Kingdom Kids Preschool is a Nut-free facility.

We are a Nut-Free preschool. Kingdom Kids Preschool provides juice each day with their snack. Students bring their own nutritious snack and a bag lunch to school. All student lunches must be completely nut-free and peanut-processed free, so please remember to check all labels before sending them with your children!

Due to students attending Kingdom Kids Preschool who have severe peanut and/or nut allergies that are life-threatening in nature, please be advised that we are a “NUT-FREE” Preschool. Under no circumstances can peanut butter sandwiches, crackers, cookies, or any similar peanut or nut product be allowed in the building at any time. This also includes cupcakes, cookies and other bakery items that are processed on peanut-shared equipment, so please check all labels before sending in any item. All items that contain peanuts or that are processed on peanut-shared equipment have a notification on the label, so please get in the habit of checking this ahead of time.

School Information


We believe children learn by building on the knowledge they already have – primarily exhibited through play. Teachers help children learn by creating a rich environment to explore via exciting educational activities.

  1. Image of the child

    Teachers can then shape and build on that knowledge by discovering what children already know through observation, one-on-one conversation, clarification, and invitation to explore the world around them.

  2. Positive Discipline

    Spanking or other methods of corporal punishment are never to be used as a means of disciplining students. This no spanking policy extends to parents with their own children while at school or school sponsored events.

  3. Environment is important

    We like to work and play in attractive surroundings so our buildings are clean, relatively tidy, and pleasing to the eye. The outdoor environments are large, have colourful and interesting gardens, and a variety of activities.


Positive, Safe Environment – We are committed to providing an uplifting and positive atmosphere for our children and staff; a fun learning experience in a secure, safe, and loving environment.

  • Leadership – We are committed to lead; developing, monitoring, and empowering our children and our staff to reach their full potential.

  • Excellence – We are committed to achieve the greatest levels of excellence in childcare, in education and in everything we do; being highly professional, innovative, creative, efficient, and effective.

  • Respect – We are committed to building strong, healthy relationships with each other, our children & their families, along with the community through communication and understanding of the cultures around us.

  • Integrity – We are committed to carry out our mission.

We have a focus on recruiting and retaining quality teachers and offer competitive remuneration, good student discipline and relatively small class sizes

    “We love Kingdom Kids! The teachers have been great and have challenged my son to improve his behavior and his education. They have “career” themed weeks, water day, seasonal lessons and of, course, faith-based programs. Their crafts are amazing (think Pinterest) and the Christmas and end-of-year programs are hilarious! They even provide you with a CD of pictures of your little one at the end of the year. Love you CRC and Kingdom Kids.”
