Keiki Intercultural Preschool offers personalized care by concentrating on the individual child’s interests through careful observation and communication. The school believes in encouraging the process of experimentation in a meaningful and fun way, in encouraging its students to be risk takers, and to not to be afraid of making mistakes. It also believes that children need to develop a sense of responsibility for their own learning process.  The school seeks to provide guided opportunities so they can feel, touch, taste, and explore with their senses as many experiences as possible, freeing them to grow and develop in a natural and positive manner.

Keiki “Intercultural” Preschool provides a setting for the children from different backgrounds to share their culture, tradition, religion, and at certain times their language. KIP offers a toddler program; a preschool program for children aged 3.5-4.5 yrs old, that aims to assist the children in acquiring life skills, by introducing them to learning centers that encompass a variety of hands on activities, and that helps children in reading skills, language skills, math skills, social and physical skills; a  kindergarten program (4.5-6 yrs) that will expand the developmental aspects of their individual growth and that will expose children to academics while continuing to focus on self-esteem and independence through our enrichment activities. This program provides a lengthened academic day along with plenty of time for social skills work and free-play time. The core of the program will be reading, oral and written language skills, and pre-first grade mathematics. Various special and afterschool programs are also offered.
