Hi, My name is Kimberly. I have been running
Kim's Kids Playhouse and Preschool
from my home since September, 1992. I married my husband, Rob
on Valentine's Day, 1981. I was born and raised in Omaha, and spent
many years in Independence, Missouri with my husband's family.
We moved back to Omaha when our family started to grow and have
found Omaha a great place to raise children. We have four
children, and three wonderful grandchildren.
I graduated from Burke High School in 1975. I took
Elementary Education courses at the College of Saint Mary's in
Omaha. I settled into accounting for the banking field,
utilizing a reporting and mortgage background. When my family
began growing, I taught Sunday School for over six years,
beginning in the preschool area and following my girls through
their fourth and fifth grade classes. I was responsible for the
lesson plans weekly and thoroughly enjoyed the teaching
environment and experience.
As the girls got older, I was the co-leader in their Girls
Scout Troop #361 for over eight years, Brownies through Cadets.
We camped, created, marketed, and sold our way to a trip to Mall
of America with 35 girls. We rented a bus, stayed in a Minnesota
Girl Scout Camp, ate at Planet Hollywood, sang and had the time
of our lives. It was a great experience, which made friendships
and bonds that have lasted through today.
After my two boys were born, it was harder and harder to find a
daycare situation I was comfortable with. When I couldn't find
in a daycare what I wanted for my own children. I set out to
provide a loving home environment that includes the lesson plans
and stimulating activities for the kids, an atmosphere of fun, a
place full of love and where children feel at home, safe and
included. I maintain a clean, healthy safe home with a great
place to explore inside and outside.
