At Kinder Prep Learning Center, all of our team members are required to attend yearly training courses through the state of Idaho. We require they attend at least 15 hours of early childhood development classes per year. We also display all staff pictures, Bio's and CPR certifications and background checks in our lobby. Come check out our employee Bio wall!



Mrs. Erika- Owner/Director

Mrs. Erika came to us out of the US Air Force where she was a public health technician. Erika is awesome at planning projects and organizing the day to day operations within our facility which is why she is the perfect fit to help keep our center organized and running smoothly. She also does billing and administration, and is typically the face that greets you when you enter our facility. Erika is also in charge of our food program and making sure our entire staff is up to date on their training requirements.
