Welcome to Kool Kids Daycare!

Letter from the Director

My name is Valerie Groeteka and I am the director and owner of Kool Kids Day Care. My family and I opened Kool Kids in March of 1996. Before that I had provided services in my home as a licensed home daycare provider for eight years. Providing quality care for children has always been my priority. For me this means providing a happy learning environment for children where family participation is welcomed and encouraged. I strive to have a very competent and experienced staff with a low turn over rate to give the children continuity. My goals are for Kool Kids to continue to maintain and improve quality services through consistent staff training, program evaluations, and accreditation.

Kool Kids Staff

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.
