KU is our place, where we all belong. A safe, calm community of children, parents and educators. We are very proud to welcome the large and diverse KU family of children, families and staff who experience KU with us each day. Side by side, we explore the world through many cultures and perspectives. KU children learn it’s OK to be different, and we can all be different, together.

In 2020, the reach and impact of our services was significant.
