One day we began to discuss the issue and, in March of 1998 decided to open Kids Kampus
. For us, the answer to the quality vs. cost question was rather simple. . . we're not the big corporate conglomerates out to become wealthy. We merely wanted to develop a program where we would feel safe placing our own children. In turn, you as parents can feel comfortable that your child is being cared for by early childhood professionals in a stimulating environment.
We may not be as inexpensive as some chain centers or home-care settings, but we're certainly not as expensive as other day cares in corporate settings (i.e., compare infant rates to as much as $1,500/month). We pay our teachers above market standards, and provide them with benefits to ensure long-term employer/employee relationships. This is crucial to the stability and happiness of your children, as they will grow to develop a tremendous fondness toward their childcare provider.
