KidWorks Mom/Alum Turned College Graduate

Sonia Quijano is proof positive that it’s never too late to chase your dreams.  This KidWorks mom was once a student at KidWorks almost twenty years ago and now her daughter Marilyn is a student in our preschool.  Even though she is now busy raising her family, she is also pursuing her dream of becoming a high school guidance counselor.

Help us say ‘Thanks!’ during Teacher Appreciation Week

Albert Einstein said, “Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty.”

We think that’s the perfect way to describe the dedication found in all 19 of KidWorks’ amazing teachers. 

Ask our students, and they’ll say our professional educators make learning delightful, challenging and fun. And their parents wholeheartedly concur. 

That’s why we’re delighted to announce that May 13 – 17 will be Teacher Appreciation Week at KidWorks.

Volunteer Of The Month: Joe Cristina

Six years ago, professional musician Joe Cristina had a conversation with himself.  He asked, “How does a Christian artist, musician and person of faith function in the secular world and make an impact and grow in their faith?”

Our December 2018 KidWorks “Volunteer of the Month” heard God’s answer, and he hasn’t slowed down since.
