Country Kids Day Care began as a mother’s vision.
For over two decades, Country Kids Day Care has offered a unique child care opportunity in a relaxed and home-like environment, which includes a wonderful exposure to the outdoors. In1996, as a working mother of three, Linda Weld changed the course of her accounting career to pursue making a real difference in the lives of children needing out of home care. In December of that year, Country Kids Day Care opened it doors in Lenexa, Kansas and began serving families in the area.
As her children got older, they too began to take active roles in running the center. In 2016 they decided, as a family, to grow Country Kids and open a second location. After two years of hard work, they opened their second location in Olathe.
Our goal at Country Kids Day Care is to provide quality child care services in an environment that is warm and nurturing so that it enhances our children’s positive sense of themselves; one that provides optimal learning opportunities to enable our children to grow socially, physically, emotionally and intellectually.
Unique facilities, inside and out…
Combining the advantages of both in-home and commercial day care centers, Country Kids has created a stimulating program in a cozy atmosphere and a country home look and feel. Our facilities are unique inside and out.
Our classrooms are designed specifically with each age group in mind. The programs are planned to promote the overall development of each individual child. We believe that children learn through play and we provide a safe environment rich in materials, emphasizing free choice and opportunity to explore and create.
The kitchen is a fully operational commercial kitchen, not just a microwave, refrigerator and pantry. We provide nutritional snacks every morning and afternoon and a nutritious, appealing hot lunch daily.
Our centers are on large lots – much larger than your typical center. This allows us to have much some of the largest, most stimulating playgrounds in the area. All our playgrounds feature, among other things, a barnyard themed play area, a children’s garden, and ample room for children to run and play. Because the owners have such a love for animals, they bring some in occasionally for the children to see and interact with, giving them a great hands-on experience.
