About Kid's Community College
A Servant's Welcome,
A Servant's Welcome,
The Kid’s Community College® Educational Philosophy is built on a simple principle: “Every student is a unique individual with unique needs, capabilities and desires.” It is our responsibility to individually nurture each one.
Our philosophy is further defined by the following core values:
- Student’s use of their preferred method of intelligence must be recognized, encouraged, respected and developed
- Instructional activities should appeal to different forms of intelligence
- Assessments must measure multiple forms of developmental intelligence
- Early developmental and academic success is the key to a foundational love of lifelong learning
- Education and development must be personalized
- To effectively personalize learning for each student, KCC will remain dedicated to quality over quantity; committing to small class sizes and small campuses
Our objective is to ensure that all students will be given every possible opportunity to develop their individual intellectual curiosity, physical well-being, moral values, self-esteem, artistic appreciation and expression, interpersonal skills and academic abilities.
We recognize that each student has a unique learning style and will benefit from each professor’s use of a variety of innovative instructional methods and strategies to enhance learning and personal development. We promote a learning environment that accommodates and excites all learners and that provides the answers to how each child is smart. The 1st Degree Learning System™ at Kid’s Community College® incorporates the Multiple Intelligences Principle of Howard Gardner with a differentiated, individual, developmentally appropriate and thematic instructional approach. Concurrently, we promote a spirit of community, cooperation and inter-dependence in which every child's contribution is recognized, valued and rewarded.
We are dedicated to encouraging and promoting the professional development of our staff and administrators in order to create and sustain our educational communities. We recognize the importance of families as the primary developmental arena for each child and promote an active collaboration among families, businesses, other schools and the community, which will serve to strengthen the effectiveness of the high-quality education we strive to offer.

KCC integrates curricula and State aligned readiness criteria with Multiple Intelligences Developmental Assessment Scales (MIDAS) to develop Individual Development and Education Plans (IDEPs) that serve as the BEGINNING of a dialogue that maximizes motivation, allows the formation of action plans to focus efforts and for the most effective use of the curricula for the student.
Our educators facilitate education and instructional experiences that maximize the effective use of strengths and target areas of developmental need to ensure optimal student success.
