Children, Inc. classroom

All of Children, Inc.’s programs and centers for preschool age children provide beautiful learning environments, state-of-the-art playgrounds, a strong educational emphasis, and literacy-rich environments. Our credentialed teachers focus on your child’s social and emotional development in a small class size with low teacher to child ratios. Our directors focus on family-centered practices that include you in the development and education of your child.

Children, Inc. provides more two and three STAR Rated after school programs than any other organization in the state of Kentucky. These high quality programs are also very affordable with tuition assistance available for many families.

Another service provided by Children, Inc. is a free home visitation program in Kenton County that provides comprehensive supports to first time parents from the prenatal period until their child turns three and a half years of age.  The program is designed to ensure an optimal start for children and their parents and aims to ensure a healthy pregnancy, encourage positive parent-child interactions, increase child health indicators, ensure that children are on target developmentally, and to assist families to become self-sufficient.
