Letter from the owner
It was January 1st, 2011 when I had a real Aha Moment. I figured, "New Year, new idea." When most were doing that New Years resolution thing, it all suddenly came together for me. For five months, friends said I was “MIA”, because I couldn’t stop working to create Kiddos. I was hooked; hooked on offering a new choice, a fun place to play, letting kids make some decisions, hiring employees who were energetic role models, having Fridays that were real events, and showing that after school doesn’t have to be a taboo place to send your child.
Summer 2011 was our first day of camp season and we grew from 25 to 70 Kiddos in 3 weeks! Then came an awesome first after-school year with our Kiddos at E. Rivers Elementary. We continued to grow with an amazing group of team members. Each summer and school year became better than the last!
Fast forward to now... We have 3 After School Programs including E. Rivers, Atlanta Classical, and Garden Hills after-school program; We also were voted BEST SUMMER CAMP in Atlanta in the Totally Awesome Awards for Red Tricycle and BEST AFTERSCHOOL By Buckhaven!
We are excited to open our first Early Learning Center! As we continue to grow, keeping 'The Kiddos Way' alive requires an AMAZING team, or as we have a "Framily." The Kiddos team leaders are a group of extraordinary people who work with me to provide a caring, high energy, well organized, and over the top program. Luckily, I have one of the best people I know, Ms. Isabel, leading the Kiddos Early Learning Center!
I have always been that kid who wants to do it better than the last time, so I am excited to have you join us this Year-- but I really can’t wait to show you what the Kiddos Framily has in store for our youngest kiddos! Some might say I am crazy (in fact many do). BUT I am confident it’s a good crazy, the kind that’s fun, full of energy, very caring and equally detail obsessed!
See You Soon!
