Shows Children that Men Can Teach and Care for Young Children Too: In 2019 the teaching team was, known to have been usually or all of the time, women only.

Our daughter attended Kidspace between the ages of 2 to 5. We were impressed by the quality of care and the dedication the staff members had towards providing an amazing environment for the kids. We confidently recommend Kidspace to all family and friends. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and inviting and the kids have a great sense of community within the center.

I have found KIDSPACE very accommodating for my family. The care my son received was of high quality. The teaching team was very supportive and understanding. He really enjoyed his time at KIDSPACE and often talk about his friends he made, teachers and peers. Thank you for taking such great care of my son.
