Kids & Company Preschool was founded in the Fall of 2000 as an ear;y educational opportunity incorporating religious faith values. Kids & Company is a unique endeavor that has been nurtured by caring teachers with complementary philosophies, skills, and teaching styles. Our preschool began as, and still is, a truly child-focused, family enriched program.

Kids & Company is managed cooperatively, with each teacher actively participating in the development of curriculum and programs. Our teachers have rich and diverse talents, educational backgrounds and experiences – all of which contribute to the high quality of our preschool. Individual teachers retain membership in various professional organizations including the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Staff members are certified by the American Red Cross in infant, child and Adult CPR as well as first aid.

While Kids & Company Preschool is a license-exempt ministry, we believe in the concept of excellence. Our classrooms and curriculum not only meet, but often exceed the licensing standards set forth by the State of Illinois. The United Methodist Church of New Lenox Board of Trustees and Administrative Council currently monitor Kids & Company Preschool. In addition, our preschool is under the direct supervision of the UMC Family Life Committee. We are extremely fortunate to be a part of such a committed and supportive community!
