City Kids Daycare Downtown is located at 274 Marconi Boulevard in the Arena District near downtown Columbus, Ohio. Founded in 1989, City Kids Downtown is designed to meet the child care needs of busy downtown professional parents who want to have their children nearby in a safe, stimulating, creative environment. This location is open from 6:30 am - 6:30 pm and offers 7,200 square feet of educational and play space to accommodate up to 90 children ages six weeks to six years.

At City Kids Daycare Downtown, we encourage parents to drop in any time, take part in classroom activities, and be involved in our program.

Our beautiful sunlit atrium playground supplements outdoor play, encouraging physical development through bicycles, the play loft, climbing equipment, the balance beam, balls, games, and water play equipment.

Our infant program has fewer babies assigned to individual caregivers than required by state law. There is a daily schedule for older and more mature babies, while younger infants are on a “demand” schedule. Schedules are developed for each baby through input from parents and caregivers. The play and sleep areas are separated so that our babies can sleep in their own assigned cribs. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to visit, feed, and play with their babies during the working day.

Children 18 months through 5 years old are divided into classrooms by age and developmental levels. Our educational programs are designed to encourage development of social interaction, physical skills, reading readiness, science awareness, beginning math, manners and hygiene training. Music, Art and Drama are part of our daily curriculum.
Introducing Our Pre-Kindergarten
Welcome to our pre-kindergarten! We are a full day certified / licensed pre-kindergarten offering a comprehensive, high quality, full day program for 4 and 5 year olds. Our curriculum covers all areas of study appropriate for the first year of elementary school including:
Language Arts
Social Studies
Physical Education

We have reviewed and expanded on the curricula of the public schools in the Columbus area and have incorporated the best from each for our program. We offer a variety of experiences from large groups to individual, one on one activities for each student. Hands on, authentic activities are the core of the program.

Because of our location, City Kids Daycare provides the opportunity for many field trips to cultural, educational, and fun locations in the downtown Columbus area. We also encourage parent participation in the classroom and have an active parent group.

We hope that you can take the time to visit and evaluate our quality pre-kindergarten program. Feel free to give us a call or e-mail to arrange a visit.

Below you will find images of our children engaging in the following activities: playing a memory game, completing a dot-to-dot worksheet, working in the science center, reading books in the reading center, and working in the writing center.

We offer a full summer program specially designed for children ages 4through 8 years old. The children are encouraged to participate in many organized activities including reading, games, computer skill development, outdoor play and field trips. The field trips include COSI, the Columbus Zoo, Metro Parks, the YMCA for swimming lessons, the Ice House for ice skating, the Arena Grand for movies, and many more. We work to provide a summer full of fun, intellectual challenge, physical activity, and friendship in the midst of the rich environment of downtown Columbus.
