About Us

MISSION

Building mind, body, and Christian character in partnership with families to bring out the best in each child.

happy-kids

Childhood is a world of wonder and discovery. Children need an environment rich in experiences, play, education and the influence of many different people. They need a place of their own where they can feel secure, valued, and special. In conjunction with training each child’s mind Kids Junction is a Preschool Learning Center that teaches the basics of Christian morals and character.

We wish to cultivate a partnership with each family to accomplish educational and training goals with their child/ren.

“Character First Curriculum,” by the Character Training Institute of Oklahoma City is an integral part of our program which helps children develop in areas of character, health, respect, knowledge and wisdom. It has two foundational principles

  • Character is more caught than taught; therefore, it is very important that the person teaching character to our children is also a model of good character.
  • We praise character above achievement. As character is praised, children are motivated to develop strong character qualities in their lives.

We accept children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, creed, political persuasion, ancestry, handicapping condition or age if an opening is available in the requested age group. Children are accepted between the ages of 6 weeks through 14 years old.

STARTING ROOTS

Our desire is to make a life-long difference in the lives of children and their families. Kids Junction Preschool Learning Center in Madison, WI came into existence on September 22, 2003 as a Limited Liability Company. Co-owner, Dan Olsen and his wife Vicky began a vision for the creative aspects of a preschool learning center. They coupled their vision with Sandra Olsen (Dan’s mother) who had twenty-seven years of experience and knowledge of all working systems for a preschool center and the ability to direct Kids Junction Preschool Learning Center.
