Our administrative staff includes Ms. Lisa Buchanan who is our director. Ms. Lisa has a degree in family and child studies and eight years of childcare experience. Our assistant directors include Ms. Renee Baker, who is our curriculum director with twelve years of childcare experience. Ms. Alli Burch is our newest assistant director. Her degree is in elementary and early childhood education and is in her fifth year of childcare.
To assure the best possible care, nurturing, and learning environment for your child, we do our very best to hire experienced individuals at Kids’R’Kids. Our hiring philosophy includes the premise that each staff member should truly enjoy children, especially the age with which they will be working. We hire individuals to team with others to provide a great learning environment for children. All staff members are screened by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services who is our governing agency.
Ongoing training includes CPR and First Aid certifications (a requirement of all our staff), health, safety, child abuse, fire safety, classes in child behavioral issues, classroom issues, curriculum, classroom activities, nutrition, etc. Some of our full-time as well as most of our part-time staff members currently attend college for education related degrees. Many of our teachers have four year degrees.
We hope you enjoy our staff as much as we do.
Ms. Renee' Ms. Alli Ms. Lisa
