Kiddies Kollege Christian Center is an offspring of Kiddies Kollege, Inc. which was founded in 1947 by Dr. Odell and Laura Shumate. Chad Shumate, the grandson of Dr. & Mrs. Shumate, after managing his grandparents centers for ten years founded Kiddies Kollege of Laurel in 1996. Kiddies Kollege of Laurel became Kiddies Kollege Christian Center in December 2000 and later expanded from a small house to a 5000 sq ft facility. In 2008 that facility expanded to its current 12,500 sq ft state-of-the-art facility.
Kiddies Kollege Christian Center (KKCC) seeks to "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he/she will not depart from it". (Prov. 22:6) KKCC strives to provide the community with the very best in pre-school services by offering the finest staff, a superior curriculum, a cleaner & safer facility. July 2004 Kiddies Kollege Christian Center was voted by the Laurel Leader newspaper as one of the best child care centers.
Kiddies Kollege Christian Center,seeks to obey the scriptural imperative of Deuteronomy 6:5-7, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart and you shall teach them diligently to your children." And of Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it".
Our mission is to provide a distinctly Christ-centered, Bible-based early learning program at an affordable cost. The purpose of the center is to guide children in the knowledge of God, the development of Christian character and academic excellence.
