Kiddie Junction Childcare & Preschool Centers is a family-owned child care center that has been in operation since 1993, serving children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
We strive to provide a quality, loving environment dedicated to the development of the "total child." Our theme-based curriculum (Ladder Learning System) is the traditional pre-school curriculum, which encourages the children to learn by experience and to discover through play.
All Kiddie Junction facilities meet or exceed all State of New Jersey Department of Children & Families guidelines. This includes extensive background checks including criminal and fingerprinting all individuals who accept offers of employment. Furthermore, all staff are required to be certified in CPR and First Aid (Adult & Child). Finally, all staff must annually complete at least twelve hours of continuing education credits towards child education.
Education Staff are advised of trends or changes in childhood development at one of the regularly scheduled training meetings. This includes being advised of research outcomes, equipment updates, programmatic additions and credentialing.
All staff of Kiddie Junction Childcare & Preschool Centers possess extensive experience in the field of professional childcare or preschool education. Either through years of experience at Kiddie Junction Childcare & Preschool Centers or previous experience at another location, our average experience of our staff is 7.2 years.
Additionally, our staff possesses education levels that far exceed the regulatory standards. We seek individuals who have made a commitment to the field of childcare and thus normally remain an employee for an extensive period of time with us and enroll in secondary education.
Because we employ a team that loves what they do, they are able to prepare a loving, nurturing environment that is conducive to fun and learning.
We thank our parents, former parents, neighbors and all individuals who voted for us another year. It is reinforcement like this that solidifies that what we are doing is positive and beneficial to the children, parents and the community.
"I wanted to write and let you know how great of a staff you have teaching Emma; she has shown such improvement since working with the Ladder Learning System. Your teachers have such a great spirit and the teaching skills are above my expectations. They are great!! I know you always ask parents what they think or what can be worked on, but I want you to know that you really have a great team. The love the concern that they have for the children really shines through everyday, it really does. I mean it when I say that Emma has shown so much improvement with them in her life. I just want to commend those ladies; they really do a great job!! They have won my heart."

"My daughter loves Kiddie Junction. We made the switch from a major chain about two months ago and couldn't be happier. The personalized care she receives coupled with the smaller class sizes provide Amanda everything she needs for a happy day everyday. The Ladder Learning System curriculum while fun for Amanda has taught her so much in the first two months! She already counts to 10 in Spanish and can say hello and good-bye. Our refrigerator is full of all of her creative art projects. Its nice to be able to go to work everyday and know that Amanda is being well cared for and having such fun."

"We love Kiddie Junction. Our daughter will be three in July and she has learned so much; she enjoys going to school each day. Alexis loves to sing the songs she has learned, she even sings them in the car on the way home. Alexis is always bringing home her art projects and running to put them on the refrigerator. Additionally, her vocabulary has grown by leaps & bounds, it seems like she learns a new word each day (even Spanish). Kiddie Junction has taught our daughter so many wonderful things and I am sure they will continue to do so for many years to come."

"My son Elijah started at Kiddie Junction this past February and had never been in a preschool before. I started seeing the results the very next week. He was singing the ABC's, counting to 10 and knows different nursery rhymes. You guys are great!"
