Business description (provided by the business owner):

I have been a licensed family child care provider since 1993. Prior to working in the child care field, I was an elementary and middle school teacher, I also coached gymnastics, soccer, track, and taught aerobics. My goal is to offer an environment that offers social/emotional, cognitive, language/literacy and physical development for children, along with a partnership in care with the parents. I achieved National Accreditation in 1999 and was named "Provider of the Year" in 2001. I volunteer extensively with my county and state child care associations, teach child care classes to other providers, and am an advocate for early childhood issues. I'm looking for two more wonderful preschoolers to join our group. Let's work together!

I am the mother of four children, ages 10, 8, 6, and 3 years old. We have been fortunate to have had the same child care for the last 9+ years-Karen's Kids. Karen is a credit to her profession!! She truly cares about the children and families she works with and views child care as a "partnership" with the parents. Karen is phenomenal with the kids-they thrive in her stimulating, structured, nurturing, educational, fun, and comforting environment. Karen allows kids to be kids, but also encourages them to become independent by developing and eventually mastering new skills. I can't say enough positive things about Karen-we have been truly blessed to have her in our lives!

One word - growth. We have watched our little girl develop new skills, both mentally and physically on a daily basis. Karen's Kids provides a caring and warm atmosphere and also stresses learning the skills and responsibilities that will help our little ones grow into great people. We couldn't be happier with the care our daughter has received at Karen's.

Karen is a wonderful childcare provider. She enjoys what she does and does it very well. She is continually taking classes and teaching classes to expand her own knowledge and to share her knowledge with others. She provides a structured environment for children to learn and grow through various activities and play. She communicates very well with parents through daily emails, monthly newsletters and conferences twice a year. The open lines of communication are highly important to us as we are working together as partners in our child’s growth and development. We would highly recommend Karen's Kids and feel thankful to have found such a excellent provider.

I have been taking my children to Karen for almost 5 years. She is awesome. As a working mother, I feel like I miss out on ECFE opportunities. Karen is so good about bringing these opportunities to us. She loves our children and genuinely cares about their well-being. She is very structured and our children appreciate that and so do we!

We feel great every morning after we drop our girls off at Karen’s. She is a true partner and we highly recommend her.

I have been with Karen's Kids for 3.5 years. My son "graduated" from Karen's Kids, and my daughter is currently there. There is not enough room here to convey the wonderful experience our family has had with Karen as our childcare provider.

Karen provides a safe and nurturing environment where I believe my daughter is receiving excellent care.

Safety is especially important to us due to our child's diagnosis of food allergies. Karen educated herself in this area, and I am 100% comfortable my daughter is being looked after in this way.

Karen's communication skills are wonderful. She provides daily, monthly, and bi-annual feedback on the activities and development of children in her care through a variety of methods.

Karen promotes a family environment at her childcare. Because of this, we have gotten to know other families through Karen's Kids and continue to foster those friendships today.

Karen cares about what is going on with our child on a daily basis. This is made evident by the many regular conversations we have with her and periodic conferences.

As a full-time working mom, it is hard juggling everything, but knowing my child is with Karen every day makes it that much easier.

I would be happy to talk to anyone who had additional questions about the wonderful things Karen's Kids offers, which includes music, movement, and travel classes, play dates, field trips, educational visits from local professionals, and much more.

For additional info or questions, feel free to contact me at 651-746-9500, as I would love to tell you more about our family's experiences at Karen's Kids.
