About Us

building kindness and bright minds with love and laughter


At Kind Mind Kids Early Learning Center, we celebrate the inner qualities of children that are meant to shine brightly in our world. Their bright light shapes their future.

Our mission is to inspire each child’s potential to shine by building values and thinking skills in a nurturing, dynamic, and stimulating educational environment. 


Kind Mind Kids Early Learning Center is an education and enrichment center engaging the local community to enrich our bright minds.

Conveniently located off Pennsylvania Avenue, our child-friendly center and our enclosed playground are secure and camera safe. We welcome children from 6 weeks to age 5 (through Pre-Kindergarten) – including those with special needs – with year-round care and educational options.
