Since 1978, Kiel School has been helping to prepare children for the future. Our dedicated teachers are there every step of the way to guide your children and help to encourage learning and success. 

Our teachers are certified and hold state licenses in education. This allows them to work directly with all different age groups and to help design a curriculum that fosters growth and education. We believe in providing an affordable quality program.
