Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies is a franchising system supporting individually owned and operated preschools around the globe. Our Academies provide a secure, nurturing, and educational environment for children.  It’s a place for children to bloom into responsible, considerate and contributing members of society. We want all children to be given the opportunity to grow in each aspect life has to offer by playing, exploring and learning with others in a happy, fun, safe and healthy environment. As a family-owned and operated organization, we welcome positive family involvement and encourage each parent to work alongside their child’s teacher to ensure the needs of the child comes first. We strive to provide excellence in early childhood education and school age care.

Pat and Janice Vinson – the founders, opened the first Kids ‘R’ Kids in 1985. They have an incredible 53-year history in preschool development and management, with their first preschool in 1961. Their unique vision has propelled the Kids ‘R’ Kids name to its current household status.  This is a true testament to their experience and commitment.

Our approach is the “WHOLE CHILD” approach, working to strengthen and encourage every child’s emotional, intellectual, social and physical being through the expert care of our franchisees.  This is done through the highly trained and skilled teaching staff, the administrative staff and the families who help create the personality and unique qualities of each school.
