  • Attending Kids Connection has been a great decision for our family. Their dedicated staff and a smaller, more intimate setting that features a more rigorous academic program than available at other schools speak for themselves, with three children graduating from Kids Connection with acceptances to their first choice middle schools. Our oldest, now two years into her middle school experience, credits Kids Connection with preparing her to succeed in the advanced academic environment of one of the Bay Area's most prominent private middle schools. With our youngest child entering 2nd grade we look frward to four more years in the KC family. We recommend Kids Connection to all our friends without reservation. It is a wonderful place to learn.

  • We have two children currently attending Kids Connection. They both started at the preschool and are now in the elementary school. When we were deciding on a school for them, our first concern was a safe and loving environment, small (family oriented) school but with strong academics. Our children are doing very well. By the time they reach their final years at Kids Connection, I know without a doubt, that they received the best foundation for their education that will follow them throughout the rest of their school years. In my opinion, the early years are the most critical in a child’s life. This is also the time when habits are formed and will remain with them throughout their lifetime.
