Every child is unique and we believe that their success and growth come from encouragement and praise. Our teachers focus on building every child’s self esteem and confidence through positive feedback and rewards. We nurture their natural abilities and strengths. 

A child sees the world around them with innocence, wonder and awe; we believe in encouraging their inquisitive spirit and natural curiosity with love and care.

Furthermore, we understand that children, when provided with an effective variety of age-appropriate choices and pursuits, will learn through self discovery, invention, imagination and experimentation within an enriched environment.

Kribs2Kids Academy Core Values

History - Philosophy - Principles

In 2002, Kribs2Kids was incorporated in St. Matthews to meet the demands for quality care at affordable prices – Kribs2Kids Academy Fairdale is our second location that features the same treasured values that has set us apart from the rest. 

Our values concerning early childhood education have gradually developed over time, and been further refined by acquired knowledge and hands-on experience.  We believe that parents are equal partners in a child's education, and we encourage parents and guardians to become involved in our program.  We want our parents to feel both welcomed and appreciated at all times.

Children are born with a need to belong—first to a family, then to a school, a community and then the world-at-large.  Belonging is sharing emotions, being accepted, and comforted.  It includes being part of a cultural tradition and accepting the cultural traditions of others.  Belonging is, indeed, sharing a part of ourselves and our families, our homes and our cultural backgrounds.  We wish to create such an environment for children at both Kribs2Kids Academy Centers making them a part of the world they live in, and giving them a sense of belonging and oneness.  We believe that children learn through play and hands-on experience.  Also, that children should be allowed to "get messy" in their playing and learning activities.  Through play there is no need to produce a specific product, no right or wrong answers but through experience, learning and enriching their lives.  A child's ability to pretend in play is a way of enlarging his or her view of the world.  It is a step toward literacy, and play often reflects the creative inner self. 

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, sex, disability, age or national origin.  We respect and treasure confidentiality! We have a long-standing policy that prohibits our staff from discussing any personal or confidential information regarding children enrolled at our facility.

Our core principles can be summed up quite simply into the following:

  • Create an atmosphere of belonging, trust and purpose where the child is the center of all activities and programs.
  • Care for our children with tender love and understanding, so they learn to think, act and make decisions on their own accord based on soundly, grounded moral principles.
  • Cultivate a strong intellectual, physical, social psychological and spiritual foundation in our children from which they continue to evolve and achieve their fullest potential.
  • Communicate daily, weekly and monthly progress reports on every child’s growth and development to parents, guardians, families, and all other appropriate parties.
  • Celebrate our accomplishments!
