All orders will be shipped straight to your home. Be on the lookout for further information as time gets closer!

Updated Mask Policy: DCFS is now mandating masks to be used by all adults and children 2 years and older. We are now required, not just encouraged, to follow this rule. Masks must be worn at all times tolerable except during meal times, nap time, and while playing outside. If you have not done so already, please provide us with a mask for you child aged 2 and up.

Family Pledge: The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are rising in McLean County. Please continue to be mindful of your pledge to KKLC. We can not keep our children safe without you and your dedication to health and safety. You can help by doing the following:
  1. Continue to take precautions to limit your exposure as you move about in the community.
  2. Wash your hands often and wear your mask in group settings.
  3. If your child or someone in your household shows sign of illness, please use a cautious approach when deciding to send your child to school.
  4. If someone in your household shows signs of COVID-19 and needs to be tested, please keep your children at home until the results are known.
School Age...
The month of August brought us some emotional good-byes to our kindergarten friends. We wish them the best at their new schools. With this school year looking a little different, some of our friends moved into our online learning instruction. We are excited to see where this adventure goes.
Getting Healthy...
At Katie's Kids Learning Center, we are committed to providing the best possible nutrition to you and your family. We hope you enjoy the following recipe:
Ginger Chicken & Spinach Stir-fry
Ideas for home...
Hatching Dinosaur Eggs
This science activity is easy to set up, engaging for kids of all ages, and versatile! Don't limit yourselves to hiding dinosaurs...try hiding gems or other surprises inside for your child to discover. And the best part is, once they are done hatching their eggs, they can extend their play with the items that they "discover".
