Welcome To Kids Care Elementary

Grades K-5

Kids Care Elementary is a free public charter school located in Columbus, OH that prepares children for success in school and life. We believe every child can achieve great things. Our administration and faculty is dedicated to providing students a top quality education in a supportive environment where a love for learning is promoted. Daily, we encourage life-long habits that promote strength of character and intellect.


“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Project Based Learning

What is Project Based Learning?
Project Based Learning, or PBL for short, is a hands-on approach to learning that we embrace at Kids Care Elementary. Through PBL, our students work on real world and meaningful projects over an extended period of time. Throughout the project, they learn through research, experimentation and engagement with experts. Students then collaborate and create a product for the public to show what they have learned.
