Quality Care That Will Build Trust & Routine
Your baby’s teachers keep them on a regular schedule that closely matches the routine you have for them at home. Your infant learns to trust that the familiar faces they see each day will care for them just like you do.
Responsive Care To Meet Their Every Need
When they’re awake, they get attention. Your baby’s teachers meet their needs with cuddles, play, communication, stories, and songs that make them feel safe and secure. You never have to worry about your infant being engaged and loved!
Sensory Play Builds Motor & Cognitive Skills
Your baby’s teacher engages them in activities that stimulate their growing motor and cognitive skills. They get tummy time, play with age-appropriate toys that explore color and texture, and safely explore their classroom as they begin to crawl and waddle.
Bright, Cheerful Classrooms Mean Vibrant, Happy Days
Your baby’s classroom is beautifully appointed, bright, and airy, and has plenty of room for play and exploration. Cribs keep your baby safe during naptime, and age-appropriate materials, furnishings, and toys help them feel right at home.
Outdoor Play Expands Your Baby’s Horizons
Your infant’s teacher takes them into the great outdoors for some fresh air, sunshine, and time to explore. A safely fenced playground keeps them secure while they soak up the rays and feel the breeze on their skin.
Stay Connected & Present With 2 Communication Apps
PB&J® provides a real-time look at your baby’s day with live-streamed video, and Brightwheel™ allows teachers to send you adorable photos and videos and important classroom information. You stay connected when you have your baby’s day at your fingertips.
Cleanliness Is Always The Top Priority
Your baby’s classroom stays sparkling clean and germ-free, thanks to daily sanitization protocols and electrostatic sprayers that knock out microbes. Strict cleaning measures help protect everyone’s health and well-being.
Safety & Security You Can Count On
You have peace of mind knowing that your baby is in loving hands with CPR-certified staff at a facility with restricted access controls, securely fenced yards, and CCTV cameras that keep watch over classrooms and play areas.

Hear What Parents Have To Say...
My two year old is learning sign language along with early learning development skills that will prepare him for pre school. I love his excitement about going to school. What joys me the most about this establishment is the Strong Black Owned leadership and the homie but professional safe environment for my child. I am happy and glad to say that Ms. Valerie and her beautiful staff are here in helping me grow my son for his future in this village.

What can I say about Ms Valerie and the entire University Kids staff! They are consistent, professional, always thrilled to see my little ones! Ms Valerie is a phenomenal Director, and she has created an all star team of teachers that do not disappoint! I have seen the academic growth in my 4 year old who is ready now to tackle kindergarten! My 1 year who came to them a little behind has learned so much in their care! They are an awesome addition to our village!

My son is currently attending here and I couldn't be more pleased. We are greeted every morning with a smile. They have an app that let's me track his activities during the day and post adorable pics and videos. The workers are very hands on and loving and professional.
