Kidz Creative Corner is very mindful of the significant role that teachers play in our children’s education and are very proud to have created a high quality team.
Each teacher is selected for their unlimited love for children, professionalism, commitment to provide quality care and education. All of our teachers meet and exceed DCFS requirements.
We have created unified teams by recognizing every teacher’s strengths, talent and contributions within the programs.
We recruit the best teachers in our community by offering competitive pay and benefits, advancement opportunities, time off work, and a friendly and fun environment to work in. We value their unique and special talents and provide everything they need to be creative and individualize their classroom activities.
We believe in quality education and continuous improvement. We conduct meetings and training sessions in all aspects of KCC’s philosophy and curriculum. Our teachers complete a minimum of 15 hours per year of professional development. Additionally, they are all CPR and First Aid certified.
Staff morale, team building and continued support is a primary focus of our dedicated directors. Every day our directors spend time in the classrooms to make sure our children and teachers have the support they need to thrive.
Young children are wonderful little beings who learn best from people who love them, and in an environment that genuinely engages them. Kidz Creative Corner offers all of that.
I always knew education would be a field I would end up in. As a child I would pretend to play teacher and babysit. Going into College I pursued a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Administration. My passion for children stem from being a parent myself and wanting what is best for a child. Over 10 years later I still enjoy working with children. I believe creating a nurturing environment is important for children to learn and discover who they are.
