The activities at the center are designed to build a child’s social, emotional, mental and physical development while encouraging independence.
We base our pre-school year on a curriculum called the Creative Curriculum. The activities we plan for children, the way we organize the environments, select toys and materials, plan daily schedules, talk with the children, are all designed to accomplish the goals of our Creative Curriculum.
Kimberley is a dedicated, highly qualified childcare professional holding an associate's degree in Early Childhood Development. She is married with 3 children and 5 grandchildren.
Kim started her career in early childhood in 1995, learning the basics of childcare and running an impressively happy classroom until 2000 when she embarked on her college degree course. After a year out of the workplace Kim decided to return to childcare alongside college, working with all age groups and in a supervisory capacity. She started her career with Academy of Learning in 2009 as one of our highly respected directors and after a short sojourn to stay home Mom, we are delighted to announce she has returned to our fold.
In her free time Kim likes to indulge in some family togetherness watching a wonderland of kid movies, packed with positive messages and role models, with her grandchildren. She also loves taking them swimming in the summer.
Center Asst. Director
Kimberly O is the perfect complement to our director at this highly respected and successful center. She has worked in the childcare field since 18 years old, most of that time under the direction of Kim Decker Coots. She was born and raised in Hardin County and following graduation from John Hardin High school she undertook to complete many professional development courses in ECE, child safety and classroom management, also pursuing a bachelor's degree in business administration.
In her free time, she and her husband love to make sweet memories with their 6 year old, following outdoor pursuits, cooking and traveling.
The two Kim's believe that as a team they will be providing a safe and loving learning environment for all the children in their care for many years to come.
