Building a School, Building Community

It has been months — nearly five very busy months — since our last blog post, when we shared with everyone our official child care center-opening in What a Blessing!, back in July 2016. Being a new school in the child care marketplace in East Honolulu has been eye-opening. While we have worked to become better known to families through very grassroots (Read: “practically no advertising budget” 😉 ) methods, the most humbling and gratifying discovery has been the consistent power of word-of-mouth advertising, of staff, parents, colleagues, friends and family inviting parents to see Kid’s☆garden Kahala as a place for young children to begin their educational journeys. Through this dynamic process we have also continued to listen to parents, to ask about and hear their wishes and wants about child care settings, curricula, and affordability, even outside of Kid’s☆garden Kahala. To this end, as a result of listening to what our community needs, we have made the choice to expand our programming to serve as many families as we can, in ways that meet scheduling, toddler-to-preschooler transition, and financial needs, while still maintaining a mindful, purposeful, high-standard approach to early learning.

Programs offered year-round are:

  • Full-time [7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.]
  • {NEW!} Full-time Extended Day [7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.]
  • {NEW!} Part-time Monday/Wednesday Friday [MWF 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.]
  • {NEW!} Part-time Tuesday/Thursday [T Th 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.]
