As a ministry of Camino Church, our mission is to protect, provide, and prepare young learners in a Christ-centered environment. We strive to show God's love to our children, their families, and our community. By providing a loving atmosphere, we instill a sense of security and the confidence necessary for children to be successful in all aspects of their development.
Daily at the Keep, we stimulate and challenge the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual development of all our children. Our teachers understand that every child is unique, and approach each one according to their individual needs and learning styles. We know building a sound foundation in the early years is of utmost importance and that a good beginning never ends.
The center is staffed with teachers with college degrees, or a continuing educational background in early childhood development. All employees are certified in Infant and Child First Aid and CPR. Additionally, our infant teachers, as well as our infant support staff, are SIDS certified.
Our 26,000 square foot facility hosts 16 classrooms, an industrial kitchen, a full size gymnasium, and five age-appropriate playgrounds.
Hours of Operation: 6:30am – 6:30pm
Ages Served: 6 weeks – 12 years of age
Meals: Daily at The Keep, we serve hot meals and nutritional snacks. We are equipped with a full service kitchen, and our chefs are trained in nutritional practices, and USDA guidelines.
Programs Offered: Full-time and part-time care, before and after school care, and summer camps.
Transportation: We provide transportation from many local elementary schools. Call for a complete list, or to see if we service your child's elementary school.
Field Trips: Provided to enhance classroom learning experiences.
Closings and Holidays: New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Friday, and Christmas week. If a holiday falls on a Saturday, we will be closed the Friday before. If it falls on a Sunday, we will be closed the Monday.
Discipline Policy: We use a positive approach to discipline, with the goal of helping each child develop a good self-image. To do this, we must set limits for the children. Re-direction is used when the child is having difficulty with a particular situation.
Thank you for taking time to visit us online! Please come by to tour The Keep and find out for yourself why so many families call us their child's "home away from home".
Please feel free to call or e-mail us for any questions you may have.

My family has called KKLC home since 2013. I've watched my son grow from an incredibly shy toddler to a confident preschooler. We now use them for before and after school care, plus summer camp!
The summer camp program at KKLC is well planned, and keeps my son entertained during a time that is easy to experience boredom.
He has made life long friends, and irreplaceable memories! I can't recommend KKLC enough!
