Meet Our Staff
Owner: Tami T.  

Tami purchased The Kids Connection in May of 2007. Prior to that she owned and operated a property management company from her home while raising her 3 children. She has a degree in Social Science and was pursuing a degree in Secondary Education when she had her second child and decided to take some time off from school to stay at home with her children. Tami has always loved children and has a passion for education so when the opportunity to purchase a preschool became available, it seemed like a natural fit. Since taking over The Kids Connection she has reduced staff turnover, added many upgrades, and increased customer satisfaction.
