Our heart is to serve & meet the needs of children and families in our community! Although we are not church supported, we consider our programs to be our family’s personal ministries for kids.
Since having four children close in age, we have become more drawn to their growing interests. For years our hearts led us to teach Children’s Church and Vacation Bible School programs for preschool and elementary grades (non-denominational). In addition, involvement with Youth Group leadership made us more aware of the increasing challenges kids have now which most folks our age never faced as a kid. With a rise in teen pregnancies, drugs and violence in school, along with many single-parent homes, and our own kids growing up, we felt moved when the opportunity and need arose to open programs for After School Care, Spring Break & Summer Camp, Parent Date Nights, and more!
As owners also of Bright Meadow Christian Preschool in Seven Lakes which started in 2003, we saw our community growing. We expanded to our current facility enabling us to begin Kool Kids in 2004 with its variety of programs for families! As a Christian-based facility, you will find a fun, safe and positive recreation environment that supports good character and morals in our growing kids!”
