Providing a Safe Environment Indoors and Outdoors
Our childcare professionals recognize just how important caring for children can be. At Kids Kollege, children are welcomed to an environment that spurs creativity but also instills a sense of belonging and safety.
Kids Kollege offers five classrooms to accommodate children with peers in the same age range. Our classrooms are composed of the following age groups: 
  • between eighteen months and two years of age
  • two to two and one-half years of age
  • two and a half to three years of age
  • four to five years of age

Each classroom is divided into interest centers including blocks, housekeeping, art, books, puzzles, writing, and science. Teachers change materials periodically to meet the interests and needs of the children. Each center is furnished with developmentally appropriate materials for the age group it services. The children's day is divided into center time, outside time, and small- and large-group activities. A hot lunch is served daily as well as a morning and afternoon snack.

Kids Kollege is staffed by a full-time director, a full-time assistant director, a part-time pre-kindergarten teacher, a part-time teacher in each of the younger classrooms, and a number of student assistants. The child-staff ratio meets and exceeds the requirements set by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Child Care Regulation. This enables Kids Kollege staff members to provide more individual attention to each child. Panhandle Workforce Child Care Services, a state child-care rating agency, has given Kid's Kollege designated Texas Rising Star vendor status.
