About The Kansha Preschool


We provide the facilities for the Kansha Preschool. The classroom accommodates 14 children, ages three through five. Fronting the classroom is a custom-built tricycle path, play structure and playground. We have an Intergenerational Garden area, and a protected lanai for art projects.

The Preschool began the new school year with our annual "Welcome "Aboard" evening open house for new and returning children and parents on July 31st, and school started the next day. We are already picking up where we left off last year! The children have started their morning activities with the "grandmas and grandpas" next door in the Maui Adult Day Care Oceanview program. These include art/craft projects, games,story time, music, and sharing toys, but most of all, just enjoying each others' company. We also had our first monthly Bookmobile visit, and will begin our twice-a-month Gymagery classes at the end of August.

The Preschool is doing a cookbook fundraiser, with recipes collected from our Preschool families, staff and board members, and their network of families, friends and co-workers. We hope to have the cookbook ready for sale in November at our two upcoming fundraisers.

The Preschool will be participating with the Maui Sons & Daughters of Nisei Veterans food booth at their craft fair on November 4 (Sunday), and our own annual Flatbread Benefit Night in Paia is on Tuesday, November 6 from 5 to 9 p.m. We have a silent auction from 5 to 8 p.m. The Preschool earns a percentage of each pizza sold, dine in or take out. Please invite your families and friends to join us for ono food and fun!.

The Kansha Preschool, started in 2007, is co-located with an adult day care facility operated by Maui Adult Day Care Centers. Each day, a portion of their activities are shared learning experiences with the seniors.

Kansha Preschool is designed for families who want their youngsters to appreciate the richness of lives lived. The children develop bonds of friendships with the seniors, and through those bond, gain an appreciation for diversity and an insight into the challenges we all face as a part of living.
