History of Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies

Pat and Janice Vinson opened the first Kids ‘R’ Kids in 1985, celebrating their 30 Year Anniversary. They have an incredible 54-year history in preschool development and management, which began with their first preschool in 1961. Their unique vision – breaking the boundaries of traditional childcare and daycare – has propelled the Kids ‘R’ Kids name to its current household status, a true testament to their experience and commitment.

Still very much involved in the company, the Vinsons are dedicated to remaining on the leading edge of early childhood development. They will continue to provide the absolute best in childcare and early childhood education.
