About Us

Kentucky Avenue Children’s Center is a developmental Preschool-Pre-Kindergarten licensed through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The center is located at the Mifflin Avenue United Methodist Church on a quiet tree lined street in Regent Square, one of Pittsburgh’s family-friendly neighborhoods. We are proud of our diverse community including children and teachers from around the world ~ Japan, China, France, South America, India, Italy and Mexico. Located near universities, medical centers, museums and parks enhances our ability to participate in various educational events. Programs for children two to five years old are offered from September to mid May in addition to two 4-week summer sessions extending to mid July. Kentucky Avenue Children’s Center is a place to explore, discover and enjoy. Love of learning exists for children where the atmosphere is predictable, safe and warm and when the curriculum fosters the child’s imagination and curiosity. At our center each classroom maintains a low student/teacher ratio where children develop long lasting friendships with their classmates and have unique opportunities to genuinely bond with their teachers.

 

School Philosophy

Kentucky Avenue Children's Center seeks to provide a warm and stimulating program where children can develop a feeling of pride in themselves. The goals of the school focus on the development of the "total child." Our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten strive to support, enrich and guide the grownth of the child in each of the following areas: emotional, social, physical and creative.

Kentucky Avenue Children's Center is dedicated to the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of its students stressing moral and ethical integrity, cooperation  and mutual respect for peers and teachers. We encourage children to be curious, active learners who feel free to ask questions; relate to each other in a cooperative spirit; share discoveries and enjoy each other's company.

The importance of each child contributes to the school as a community of individuals joined by shared attitudes and values based on mutual respect. We encourage the children to extend to others the support and concern they receive. This fosters the development of caring people who take an increasingly active interest in the world around them.
