“Enhancing Joyful Learning” is the environment that we perpetuate for all of our keiki “children” here at Keiki Care Center of Hawaii, Inc. (KCCOH). Located in Pearl City, the heart of Oahu, we are centrally located and near to freeway on and off ramps, but still located in a quiet residential neighborhood. Many from around the island choose KCCOH as their choice for preschool.

Our preschool program for children ages 2 through 5 years old, has been created to perpetuate and foster the philosophy and values that have been developed and carried on throughout the many decades of years of teaching by its highly trained, experienced and dedicated teachers and staff. Many of our teachers have degrees specifically in the field of early childhood education, and a few even have attained Master’s Degrees. You can be assured that your child will be in wonderful care here at KCCOH.

KCCOH was opened due to the closure of St. Timothy’s Children’s Center in Aiea back in 2008, since the hope was to employ as many of the teachers and faculty to keep the “ohana” together, as well as to continue to provide a great preschool education for those families that were displaced due to the closure. St. Timothy’s was the only nationally accredited preschool on this side of the island at that time, and KCCOH definitely continues with the curriculum and philosophy that made St. Timothy’s a successful program for 30 years. The 2017-2018 school year marks KCCOH’s 10th year anniversary!

At KCCOH, we view each child as an individual…a bright learner with potential for growth and development needing an optimal, stimulating environment. Our environment is safe, challenging, supportive, nurturing, and respectful of the child and his/her family. We believe that young children need a nurturing, stimulating environment, which supports and challenges their growth and learning. We care about each child and show this through our interactions with the individual child. Teacher-child ratios and small group sizes, which are based on national accreditation guidelines versus the higher State of Hawaii ratios, are designed to enable teachers to spend quality time with individual children to meet their needs.

KCCOH offers high-quality education and care Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for children enrolled in the full-time program. For those children enrolled in the partial day program, pick up time is by 2:00 p.m.

KCCOH operates similar to a year-round school calendar, operating from mid-August through mid-July. The summer break is for professional development trainings and workshops for our staff, to ensure that our faculty is always up-to-date in their field of early childhood education, as well as First Aid, CPR and AED training.

We are now accepting enrollment reservations for children ages two to five…willing to learn…while having fun…in a nurturing, caring and safe environment!

KCCOH could possibly be the best school for your keiki! Please feel free to call to schedule a family tour at 455-5545. Mahalo nui loa!
