The history of Kiddie Kollege is replete with transitions and transformations for the past 50 years. Overcoming the challenges of the pre and post Japanese-American war strengthens its resolve to find meaningful changes to address the needs of the children from poor neighboring communities of Malate in Manila. Kiddie Kollege continues to live up to its mission of taking part in ensuring that the children under its care become socially adjusted, emotionally stable, mentally alert, and are capable of managing their levels of learning.

As a kindergarten laboratory for deaconesses of Ellinwood Bible School, and later for student-teachers of Ellinwood College of Christian Education (ECCE), it offered space for kindergarten students to enjoy and learn during a regular two-and-a-half hour classroom session consisting of prayer, play, music, rhythmic activities, meal time, simple chores, a short nap time, and story telling, and other creative activities.

When ECCE was affiliated with Philippine Christian Colleges (PCC) in 1960, the kindergarten laboratory become a regular unit operating throughout the school year and holding classes five days a week. It became the laboratory school of the those taking up a degree in Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education under the College of Education.

It was in 1970 when the laboratory school transitioned to Kiddie Kollege as an initiative of the late Dr. Patrocino S. Ocampo, then Vice President for Academic Affairs of PCC. The following year, a nursery class opened with 46 children. In school year 1972-1973, four kindergarten classes (three in the morning and one in the afternoon), with a total enrollment of 80 children, were held in the old Methodist guest house. Enrollment grew in the years that followed. 19 years later (1991), Kiddie Kollege, the Union Elementary School, and the Union High School of Manila were integrated into one academic unit called Philippine Christian University Integrated Science School. The Kiddie Kollege was transferred to the elementary campus in 1998 for purpose of closer supervision.

To meet the demands of global education, Kiddie Kollege integrated the Singapore Framework for Kindergarten in its curriculum during school year 2004-2005. The thrust is to have the children become life-long learners in in line with the global goal of making schools competitive. It is also in this year that Kiddie Kollege opened a new program for toddlers to cater to the demands of working parents. It was a fusion of daycare and kindergarten program.

Responding to the mandate of RA 10533 or the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013, the Kindergarten program was placed under the elementary curriculum where students are required to complete the kindergarten curriculum prior to being accepted in Grade 1. It was in school year 2015-2015 that Kiddie Kollege became a pre-kindergarten unit of Philippine Christian University – Union Elementary School, offering playgroup for 2 years old, nursery 1 for 3 years old, and nursery 2 for 4 years old.

In school year 2016-2017, Kiddie Kollege opened its Kindergarten Accelerated Curriculum, a program designed to cater to children with multilingual backgrounds. It is a fusion of the DepEd pre-school requirements and High Scope International’s curriculum using an active participatory child approach included Foreign Language, Social Sciences and Geography. Kiddie Kollege now has three distinct programs – Preschool, Accelerated Curriculum and the Special Education since 2018.

This year, Kiddie Kollege has submitted an application for government permit to establish its Special Education (SPED) program which caters to students with special and exceptional needs from Levels I to VI where students are encouraged learn at their own pace. The program provides wealthy and stimulating experiences in Language, Creative Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Sciences, Computer Education, and Music.

From being a laboratory school in the pre-war era to what it has now become, Kiddie Kollege’s transition and transformation have never left behind its original mission of helping children grow in appreciation of Jesus, the greatest teacher and friend of little children.
