Reviews for Keiki O Ka Aina Preschool Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

There services for Hawaiian families and the preschool at 91-1258 Renton Road, Ewa Beach 96706 is wonderful! I love how a families can get SAT prep, Hawaiian Montessori- Kulia, and a sister drop off preschool (Ewa Plains ENRICHMENT 808-220-3210) right in the same facility.
I have experienced children ready for elementary school, Kupuna (grandparents) happy to have their grandchildren learning on site and engaged mommies!

Keiki O Ka Aina has many programs to help the community and strengthen families. One program helps to find volunteer mentors to mentor keiki with a daddy or mommy in prison. Other programs help to defray costs for preschool, and child care and other programs help to maintain and build healthy bonds between couples and their keiki. The organization and its participants has embarked upon making family poi boards and poi pounders, a traditional Hawaiian hale and an outrigger canoe. Learning by doing, helps families to bond, to forgive and to learn about each other. They bring so much joy to Kalihi Valley. My son and I were in Kulia I Ka Nu'u, a parent education workshop series to teach parents to be the best teacher they can be for their keiki. The lessons were immersed in Hawaiian cultural values such as family storytelling. I had the best kuma named Kamaile. She was full of grace, ideas and practical wisdom. My son, ohana and I have flourished with the love of the kumu and the lesson plans she helped to implement with us.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

create more space for expanding programs.
