Welcome to KUM Preschool

Welcome!

Over 50 years ago, KUM Preschool opened on a trial basis with 30 children and two teachers. Today, we serve over 150 students through a developmentally-appropriate curriculum and child-directed play. We are dedicated to helping children achieve personal, social, and academic success while developing a love of learning in the process.

Come for a visit. We'd love to get to know you.

Jenny Goff, Director

Our Philosophy

KUM believes in providing a strong foundation in social and emotional development through play-based learning and developmentally-appropriate curriculum, so that children may achieve personal, social, and academic success while developing a love of learning in the process.

The KUM Difference

Our Programs

The classroom curriculum is designed to include a large block of time for child-directed play among the various centers in the room. During this time, teachers prepare the classroom with engaging materials and learning opportunities so that children may explore and act on their environment, observe and ask questions, and interact with others. Activities are also provided to practice emerging, age-appropriate skills during teacher directed, small group activities. Further options are also offered throughout the week to enrich the child’s school experience.

The Co-op

One of the ways KUM differs from other schools is our co-op program. Parents work alongside their child’s classroom teacher as the assistant in the classroom, aiding in tasks such as small group projects, and conflict resolution during play. Parent Helpers are encouraged to sit alongside children during group time, as well as music and movement classes and join in on the fun, modeling appropriate behavior.

The Kindness Code

The Kindness Code is an approach to supporting children’s behavior with empathy, direct teaching, guidance/re-direction, and positive language. The kindness Code does not use threats, anger, punishing, or shaming to ensure cooperation. By using and modeling kindness through The Kindness Code, we increase the likelihood that our students will have positive social/emotional growth and increased compliance.
