Kids Kampus Learning Center delivers fundamental education and quality care to young children. The educational standards continue to rise and without a strong fundamental early education children are not prepared and are suffering, or are held back as they enter Kindergarten. They must learn the fundamentals of phonics, letters, numbers, counting, etc. while increasing their reading strength. Our goal is to ensure that the children are reading, or at the very least, master pre-reading skills that are essential for success in their elementary education. This education does not start in preschool but in infancy. With infants all the way through the pre-reading ages, it is vital that they have story time and learn that books are fun. They also need to have activities that foster their cognitive, fine motor, large motor, language and social skills. Kids Kampus not only provides those activities but has proven test scores upon pre-kindergarten testing.
Management & Staff:
Brandi has worked in elementary and post-secondary schools for 10 years. She is originally from the Boise area and attended Boise State University for her undergraduate degree in English Literature and Teacher Education. She met her husband of eight years in Boise and they both moved to Moscow where they both could continue their education. She went to the University of Idaho to complete her Masters of Education and began teaching elementary education and also worked as a graduate assistant teaching college courses in education and speech. She then moved to Salt Lake City to transition into her professor position at Utah Valley University. After a few years she began a new adventure and continued her education at the University of Memphis working on her Ph.D in English Literature. After a few years she and her husband missed their beautiful state of Idaho and decided to move back to the Boise area to raise a family. She obtained an Associate Dean position and was content in her career until their beautiful daughter was born in 2011. Brandi then decided that she would get creative in how she used her degrees and experience. Owning Kids Kampus Learning Center was their next adventure. Brandi wanted to be able to use her education, experience but also spend time with her three children. She feels extremely blessed to have it all!
The family loves their great state of Idaho and all the activities it entails. During the summer they enjoy hiking, biking, camping, fishing and taking weekend warrior trips around the state. The winter months leads them to the mountains for snowboarding and cross-country skiing. Their children now lead the majority of their adventures around this beautiful state.
