To enroll your child at Lexington Kids Christian Child Care, we ask that you first come in to tour our facility. This gives us the opportunity to meet, show you what our center can offer your family, and explain our policies and procedures. On the tour, you will get to see the classroom your child will enroll in, meet the classroom teachers, and see our other learning facilities. When you are looking for child care, it is important to tour several facilities to find the care environment that will best meet the needs of your child and family.
When you visit, we will provide you with information about Lexington Kids and answer any questions you may have. Ensuring that you are comfortable leaving your child in our care is a priority for us.
"In early childhood you may lay the foundation of poverty or riches, industry or idleness, good or evil, by the habits to which you train your children. Teach them right habits then, and their future life is safe."
- Lydia Sigourney
