Comments from families:
In a small town with very few childcare options, Totally Kids has been very beneficial. My children look forward to participating in the activities and adventures planned daily, and I am thankful my children have a safe environment to thrive in.

As a very busy mother working full time, and attending school full time It gives such peace of mind knowing my kids are in a safe environment and are able to attend fun summer activities. We love our TK staff, and all they do for the kids of our community.

Totally Kids is a blessing to our family. We appreciate knowing that our kids are in a safe and stimulating environment with their peers during the work day. And we can afford it! Thanks the staff and board of directors who make it possible!

Totally Kids is our saving grace! I would not be able to work and provide for my children without the incredible staff and program. My children gain knowledge and experiences that I just could never offer. This is a safe place that puts children first.

I love the care that the teachers give my child at Totally Tots.  I feel all the kids are being treated with the best quality of care. My child is always boasting about friend and teachers at school. Every staff member seems to truly love and care about the children the care for.

We love the teachers! The toddler teachers are all very thoughtful with their lesson plans and daily activities, incorporating learning with play. They're also are super communicative to parents on daily activity and overall developmental progress. I feel great knowing that I'm bringing my child into a well thought out, structured environment where he can learn while having fun with kids his age.


Totally Kids, Inc. is committed to providing quality, affordable youth services; working in conjunction with other programs in the Hayden community to enhance the area's livability.

Background Statement

Totally Kids, Inc. is a non-profit organization originally formed in the fall of 1994. A group of Hayden residents felt the time was right to build a childcare center. However, after some work and research, the Totally Kids Board of Directors determined that a childcare facility could not become self-sustaining, at that time. With the assistance of the Hayden School District, we opened the After-School Program at Hayden Valley Elementary. Then, during the spring of 1995, through board members additional community involvement, we decided to assist two other programs that could benefit from Totally Kids more formal non-profit structure: Tee Ball and the Swim Program. Throughout the years, we have responded to the wants and needs of the community to continue to provide programs for youth. In 2021, the Town of Hayden purchased that old Hayden High School and opened the Hayden Center. Totally Kids was fortunate to be able to partner with the Town of Hayden. The Town of Hayden renovated an entire wing for Totally Kids, and in January of 2022, we were able to open Totally Tots Early Childhood Learning Center which provides care for children ages 8 weeks of age to 5 years old. We now provide Summer Day Camp, Extended Hours Program, Totally Tots as well as Swim Lessons and Enrichment Classes.

Totally Tots Early Childhood Learning Center has one infant room, one toddler room, and one preschool room. We are currently licensed for 40 children ages 8 weeks to 5 years of age. Our preschool room provides a preschool program for children ages 3 years to 5 years - Monday through Friday - year round.
