In 20 years, who are your children going to be? David and Amy Fish, who own the three Kids Kampus Preschools in Burleson, believe the children of today are our future leaders. Their story began in their Finance 341 class at Texas A&M University. David and Amy fell in love, married and moved to
the DFW Metroplex. By 2005, they had three children and were struggling to find great care during the day for Christopher, Lauren and Matthew.
The Fish’s felt Amy’s background in education and teaching for five years and David’s background in business and tax accounting combined to create a great partnership. They started Bedford Christian Academy & Montessori Preschool, which has been educating great young minds since August 2005. “It’s exciting to see the students from the first pre-K graduating class at BCAMP confident and comfortable as they enter this new phase of education as freshmen in high school,” Amy said.
The success of BCAMP’s program led the Fishes to consider starting additional locations around the greater Fort Worth area. After much training and study, Amy and David purchased the Kids Kampus Creative Learning Center chain in Burleson in 2016. Known today as Kids Kampus Preschool, changing the name to a shorter version was the first step toward creating the community preschools for Burleson.
Community preschools are a concept the Fishes offer to strengthen families and equip the children of today to be the future leaders of tomorrow. “It starts by creating a school community, where everyone — students, employees and families — feels secure, trusted and safe at each of our three Burleson locations,” Amy said. “Our goal is to provide a solid foundation of knowledge and skills for future personal and academic success.”
Kids Kampus Preschool will equip children with social/emotional skills by teaching them to recognize emotions and respond to them in a productive way. “For example, children are taught that if they are angry, they should find a quiet spot to calm down, and then decide what’s next. If scared, they are taught to contact a trusted adult, and if they need something, to contact an adult and ask for what they need,” Amy said.
Additionally, Amy’s staff equips children with a sense of empathy and compassion. “Looking out for the needs of others as well as their own is an important skill for the future,” Amy said. “Our teachers encourage children to discover a love of and a curiosity about learning in our fun, hands-on educational environment,” Amy explained.
Kids Kampus Preschool uses research-based, combination curriculum providing many genuine learning opportunities for students with different learning styles through games, songs, rhymes, circle activities, independent learning stations, cooking classes, language labs (Spanish and ASL), creative movement and much more.
Kids Kampus Preschool partners with each child’s family. “With communication and support, the bond with the school and staff will provide a knowledge that each child is safe, engaged and learning,” Amy said. “This role of our organization in the community provides a very important peace of mind.”
The Fish’s plan for the Kids Kampus Preschools to make a positive impact in the Burleson community. To learn more about their professional, compassionate organization, contact one of the schools.
