Welcome to KidZKount

Our vision

KidZKount envisions a future in which children and families are the nation's top priority. KidZKount is recognized for offering services that enrich children's development through self-discovery, extraordinary environments and healthy enjoyable experiences. We are guided by a Reggio Emilia inspired approach to teaching, learning and reflection that promote family engagement in their children's development, the program and the community.


We promote healthy eating and serve organic foods grown in community gardens. We invite staff to participate in relationship based reflective practices, and health and wellness activities. Our teachers are fully engaged, focused and have the time and space to reflect. They bring joy into teaching and help children to enter kindergarten with an enthusiasm to learn.

Our history

Placer Community Action Council, Inc. was created in 1969 as part of the Economic Recovery Act in the War on Poverty. Over the years, it has had many programs, but when it became a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit corporation, the emphasis was limited to preschool training for low-income children and their families.


In September 2001, PCAC adopted KidZKount as the marketing, advertising, fund development and community outreach name for the organization.
