Our Story

The KinderNoggin concept was born from a need that began in 2003…the need of parents to find the best childcare options available for their child. Upon the birth of our first child, my husband and I searched tirelessly to find the best quality childcare available. Needless to say, we became increasingly frustrated with our options. The dilemma for us was whether or not an in-home setting or large daycare setting was best.
In searching for the best of both worlds, we found that there weren’t programs in our area that offered the level of care and education we wanted in a home-like setting. Being a former 4th grade teacher, I knew first-hand the importance of quality early childhood education and I wanted to give my sons the best education possible…starting from infancy.
After moving our children to multiple centers (our oldest 5 times by age 3 and our youngest 4 times by age 1 ½) I thought, “I’m sure that I am not the only mom having difficulty finding quality care.” Therefore, I decided to create what I was so desperately seeking for my children. In 2009, I resigned from my company to pursue my dream of opening a preschool that offered a high level of education and care in a home like setting.
During my pursuit, I was blessed to meet Wanda Collins, the owner of Little Princess Childcare, a home school program. I enrolled my youngest son into her program and was simply amazed by the level of care, education and love she provided “her children!” My son would literally run to the door in the mornings to get his hug from Ms. Wanda! As a parent that was absolutely priceless!
While sharing with her some of my frustrations and how grateful I was to have found her, I began to describe my dream of owning and operating a preschool, with a program structure like hers. She too had the desire to expand her program and the rest is history.
Together we created KinderNoggin. Our Mission is to offer an alternative to traditional childcare that is academically focused in a home like setting.

Program Philosophy and Values

KinderNoggin’s philosophy on early childhood education is that children learn through active, hands-on, guided and purposeful play and interaction with developmentally appropriate materials.

Children also learn what they live. KinderNoggin believes that children learn best in an environment that is warm, inviting and nurturing, much like the environment in their home. Therefore, KinderNoggin aims to duplicate the family home setting by creating an environment that promotes creative expression, exceptional learning opportunities and a positive self-image.

More and more research is showing that preschool children are developing stress issues due to the overcrowding in programs, separation anxiety, institutional-style surroundings and inattentive child care providers. KinderNoggin combats these issues by providing an experience in early childhood education that delivers individualized care, a calming atmosphere and the loving support of a home school coupled with social experiences and superior education of a successful private school.

Mission

To offer a unique alternative to traditional childcare in which children experience family-style care in an educationally rich environment. The program supports each  child's intellectual curiosity while meeting their fundamental need to feel safe, secure and most importantly loved. With a focus on the whole child, the program  requires a commitment from and partnership between parents and teachers to create a haven in which children can grow to their full potential emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually.
