KKDC: Wartburg

Kiddie Korner Daycare and Preschool: Wartburg is the fifth of our 8 child care facilities. The daycare was established in 2018 and has been proudly serving Morgan County ever since. Our Wartburg facility consists of one large building with plenty of room to learn, grow, and play, with safe indoor and outdoor facilities. 

 

Children in our building are given breakfast, a hot lunch, and snack each day. All classrooms in our 3 Star facility use a faith-based curriculum, follow Tennessee Early Education Standards, and have CDA certified lead teachers. As well, all staff are TECTA certified, with childcare-driven goals and aspirations. 

Our building has locking, passcode doors to enter, and we are in the process of implementing a clock in and out station for parents dropping off or picking up their children. We will also be offering cameras in every classroom of our facility for parents to watch, with the payment of a one-time fee. Also, multiple times a year we have a photographer come to take pictures of the children, with an option for you to buy.

Our building houses infant toddlers through school-age classrooms. We accept infants as young as 6 weeks old and teach them sign language. Parents are welcome to come and feed their babies during the day, with mothers being more than welcome to come and breastfeed. The staff offer tummy time and hold each baby to feed them when parents are away. The state of Tennessee requires that we set a timer and check each baby every 15 minutes for SIDS, but we check them every 10 minutes to ensure maximum safety. 

At age one we begin our Christian-based curricula, High Reach and Pinnacle. While at age two we begin potty training. The curricula then changes at age three, when we begin Scholastic, Leap Into Literacy, and Saxon Math curricula. This combination curriculum lasts through preschool.

During Pre-K, we use an accelerated version of our 3-5 year old curricula, in addition to basic skills to know for Kindergarten. Pre-K is more structured and scheduled, but it helps to train your children for entering elementary school. For school age, the school system offers a drop-off and pick up service directly to the local elementary school every day through the school year. Children in the school-age program receive breakfast and an afternoon snack (lunch in the Summer) while playing outside, doing daily Christian devotionals, and working on homework.
