HOW IT ALL BEGAN:
Kids World Daycare & Early Learning Center began as a certified and registered home daycare in June 1994. After doing much research on area demographics and state childcare regulations, it was realized that Hammond/Ponchatoula area was growing and could accommodate another quality Daycare.
In August of 1995, Kids World Daycare & Early Learning Center, located at 15720 Belle Drive opened. The center was state licensed for 57 students and filled to capacity within three days. The 2800 square foot building consisted of five classrooms, a full kitchen, and a large activity room. Kids World accepted students ranging in age from 6 weeks to 12 years. In August of 1996, Kids World Daycare and ELC split into two facilities. The Belle Drive location offered child care for infants, toddlers, and two year olds, while Kids World opened their pre-school and aftercare location in a building on Range Road. Even with the facilities split, the concept remained the same, to "Provide a safe, loving, and educational environment for all children."
The Tuesday after Labor Day in 1997, Kids World Daycare & Early Learning Center moved into their newly constructed building. This 3700 square foot building offered seven new classrooms, a director's office, and large indoor activity area for it's students. It is located by walkway next door to the existing building on Belle Drive. Kids World, as it stands today, offers two Infant classes, two toddler classes, two two-year-old classes, two three-year-old classes, a Pre-K class, and Before/After-school care for both Ponchatoula and Hammond school districts. Our fifteen passenger van picks up children in the Ponchatoula school district. We also provide a Summer Camp for school-aged children during the months of June and July.
We are pleased to announce that as of July 2013, Kids World Daycare and ELC, LLC is a 4 star center with the Louisiana Quality Start Program.
While growing and expanding, my mission has remained the same: provide a safe, loving, and educational environment for all children.
On behalf of the entire staff here at Kids World, I would like to thank you for your interest in Kids World Daycare and Early Learning Center!!
