Kids of the Kingdom (KOK)
Preschool Kids of the Kingdom Preschool is a Christian based preschool offering preschool to children ages 3-5. Our mission is to provide developmentally appropriate learning opportunities that will assist young children in building the cognitive, language, physical and social/emotional skills that will enable them to enter school ready to learn.
We offer preschool for children ages 3 and turning 4 throughout the year on Tuesday/Thursday from 8:30-11:30. Tuition fees for this group are $80.00 a month.
We offer preschool for children ages 4 and 5 on Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 8:30-3:30. We also offer hot lunch for the students on these days. Kids of the Kingdom participates in the Universal Preschool Program for the state of Iowa. Therefore, children who are 4 on September 15 pay no tuition. Those who are 5 pay $150.00 a month.
There are scholarships available for 3 and 5 year olds through the Early Childhood Center in Orange City if you meet the financial requirements.
We are a Christian based preschool so we participate in chapel once a month with Ireton Chrisitan School students. We also do several field trips throughout the year to places like Pizza Ranch, the Pumpkin Patch, Hillcrest Nursing Home, T and S Christmas Tree Farm, Oak Grove and Maassens Dairy.
