We are dedicated to providing the best possible care, in a financially sound manner, for the children enrolled in Cabarrus County Schools.

KIDS:PLUS believes all children should receive quality care in a safe and nurturing environment. The KIDS:PLUS staff recognizes each child as an individual and believes a child’s self-image is developed between the ages of 5-12. We believe students learn through play and interaction. We offer materials and activities that are age appropriate to guide growth and development. We continually adapt our programs to best facilitate the growth in a student’s development regardless of his/her age or stage of development.
