Kaweah Kids Center was established in 1986 to provide Kaweah Delta employees with quality childcare. We recognize the role quality childcare plays in the selection of an employer. With that in mind, Kaweah Kids was developed and continues to meet the needs of the families or our employees. We accept children ages six weeks to five years.
