WHO WE ARE
WHO WE ARE
Kiddin’ Around playcare is an upscale drop in play care facility designed with your child’s enjoyment in mind.Since August of 2000, we have been the premier drop in center for the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Our specially designed centers are constructed from the ground up to provide a safe and friendly environment where kids can interact, play and learn from other children. Parents can relax knowing their children are being watched by professionally trained caregivers. Kid’s play is our business.
WHAT IS A DROP-IN PLAYCARE?
A drop-in playcare center is run very similar to traditional daycare, with a few exceptions. Our staff receive the same type of training as daycare employees. They are first aid and CPR certified, have early childhood training, have experience working with kids, and undergo state mandated criminal background checks. We are also licensed by the state to operate under the same regulations that apply to daycare’s.
WHY USE A DROP-IN PLAYCARE?
We charge a lower rate than typical adult babysitters who are paid for watching more than one child during the day, evening or weekend hours. We provide snacks and meals so you do not have to worry about your child being fed while they are in our care. Your children will not only be provided excellent care, they will also get to interact with other children of similar age, enjoy the various play areas in our facilities and engage in structured activities that our care givers plan.
GET TO KNOW OUR FOUNDERS, DIRECTORS AND STAFF
Kiddin’ Around Playcare was founded by two Coppell mothers, Debbie Williams and Gina Jones who recognized the need for a safe and fun place for kids to be. They realized that there was no place that they could drop their kids off, where they could be assured that they were being cared for by someone loving, who had childcare experience. A place where their kids could interact with other children in a fun environment, in their neighborhood. They opened the doors of Kiddin’ Around Playcare in August 2000 and it has been our greatest pleasure to be able to serve thousands of kids who have since come through our doors.
Kiddin’ Around requires staff to be cheerful, enthusiastic, respectful, fun, and encouraging towards all children. They must obtain at least 24 clock hours of childcare training annually, pass criminal history checks and be CPR and First Aid certified. We take pride in our staff being active participants in you child’s adventure at Kiddin’ Around. Most our staff being moms themselves know what it takes to raise kids…a lot of love and patience. Some of our younger staff bring in new energy and the kids love playing with them. A few of our employees have come to Kiddin’ Around as kids themselves and it says a lot when they chose Kiddin’ Around to come back to for their first job!
