Letter from the Director

My family and I built Kool Kids from the ground up in March of 1996. Prior to that, I provided services in my home as a licensed home daycare provider for eight years. Starting with my own family, providing quality care for children has always been my priority. For me, this means providing a happy learning environment of patience, creativity, and consistency for children where family participation is welcomed and encouraged. We know that you are trusting our family of experienced and dedicated educators with your most precious thing, and look forward to providing the warm, safe, and caring environment that will develop a lifelong love of learning.

Kool Kids Staff

Our classrooms & teacher to child ratios:
  • Infants 1:4
  • Toddlers 1:5
  • Twos 1:6
  • Threes 1:8
  • Preschool 1:10
  • School-age 1:20

Our staff here at Kool Kids Day Care possess the education, experience, training, and enthusiasm to create engaging and positive learning environments. Our staff grows in development right along side the children by attending professional development classes and workshops to keep up with the latest trends in childcare and early education. In each class one or more of the teachers holds either a CDA or a degree in Early Childhood Education.










Our teacher to student ratios are kept in line with the State of Illinois standards, allowing our teachers to focus on the individual needs of the children in their care.


Our teachers are also available to provide daily feedback on your child’s day, to answer questions, or just to help you meet any unique needs your family may have.
