The Kids ‘R’ Kids Story

The most important “FIRST” at Kids ‘R’ Kids
is our children.

The children that we have been entrusted with are our most important “FIRST”. Our franchisees believe the children come first and the revenue will follow. As we continue to grow, providing high quality care and education remain our top priorities.

Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy has more than 30 years of experience in the childcare industry and a proven franchise system for new business owners. Pat and Janice Vinson, the founders, opened the first Kids ‘R’ Kids in 1985. Just three years later, Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy became the first childcare company to franchise. Since opening the doors our philosophy, “Hug First, Then Teach,” has not changed. We pride ourselves on being one of the top franchisors in the childcare industry with innovative educational strategies that focus on the overall development of the child.
