About the Kids Depot

Established in 1999, Kids Depot Child Care and Preschool Program is a 3-star state-licensed facility for up to 185 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years.

They provide before- and after-school care and serve Sango Elementary, East Montgomery Elementary and Carmel Elementary Schools. Transportation is provided for school-age program attendees and for field trips.

The Kids Depot program fosters self-esteem and encourages natural learning while preparing children to meet school readiness requirements. They offer a caring and nurturing atmosphere, providing each child with an abundance of love and attention. Smaller-ratio classes expose children to more one-on-one learning opportunities with teachers.

Kids Depot is in Sango Village and open from 6am-6pm Monday-Friday. A breakfast, morning snack, hot lunch and afternoon snack are served daily.
