All Kids First opened in September of 1999 as a preschool contracting with the Vineland School District. The school was part of a new preschool program implemented in about 30 districts throughout the state of New Jersey. As enrollment has increased, All Kids First has accommodated the needs of the district by building a new building. Our indoor play center was later added to this building, as well as an infant and toddler room.
At All Kids First, we believe that our High/Scope Curriculum will help children become self-reliant problem solvers who can set their own goals and follow through on them independently. We work towards this goal by offering children opportunites, within a carefully planned routine, to work and play independently, to make choices, to pursue their own interests, and to solve problems that may arise during the process.
All Kids First Childcare is NAEYC Accredited. This achievement has become the mark of quality, helping parents find the best possible early childhood experience. NAEYC is the nation's largest organization of early childhood educators. In order for a school be accredited, it must undergo a comprehensive process of internal self-study and improvement. Only programs that meet all 10 of the NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards become accredited.
