“I have worked with children and families for almost 30 years. I am a licensed center Director in the states of Kansas and Missouri. I have a Master’s Degree in History and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a Bachelors in Youth and Family Human services. I have 2 grown daughters. My youngest daughter is also a teacher at Kiddi Kollege.
One of the reasons I am at Kiddi Kollege is to help foster young children’s education. I believe that children’s minds are little sponges and learn by experimenting, exploring and playing. I love Kiddi Kolleges vision and nurture the idea that we are not just “babysitters”, we are educators!”
Ms. Keri Olson, Assistant Director
“Hi, my name is Kerstin Olson but my nickname is Keri. I have been teaching for 32 years. I have worked in public, private and corporate schools. I have taught Kindergarten and Pre-k ages for most of my career.
I enjoy preparing and guiding children to succeed in Kindergarten. I have a true passion and love for working with children and helping children progress in all areas of their development, academic, social, language and motor skills. I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun and loving environment. I love to read, cook and enjoy the pool during my favorite season, summer. I am so happy to be part of the Kiddi Kollege family and take care of your precious children.”
Ms. Nikki, Assistant Director
“I have been with the Kiddi Kollege family since 1991. I started through an on the job training program through high school. I also went to Vocational school and earned a certificate in Early Childhood Education.
“My favorite part about working with children is watching their excitement when they learn new things. I love how their eyes light up and that smile spreads across their face when they recognize their own accomplishments. It’s humbling knowing I had a small part in putting that light in their eyes and that smile on their face. I also love just talking and playing with them. Some of the best stories I have ever heard came from the imagination of a child.”

What Parents Say
“My child has been going here for 6 years. We started out with toddler care, preschool, and now after school care. The director, Mrs Era, as well as Mrs. Nikki, make Kiddi Kollege feel like family. My family and are so so satisfied with everything that our toddler will be going here for preschool as well. I highly recommend this facility and am sad to think one day my kids will be too big to attend!
“When my son was little he was slow to talk. Kiddi Kollege helped me utilize resources offered by our county to have him checked out. That plus the two years or wonderful preschool education they offer has made him a top student.” – Healy Family
“My son has attended this daycare since he was about 3 months old. He is now almost 2 years old. The director, Ms. Era, cares about all of the children and she is very attentive and helpful whenever I ask her about anything. She always knows what is going on and I am impressed with her and all of her staff who is very kind and caring to the children. My son loves his teachers and has learned so much here! I am very grateful for this place since I was worried about finding a daycare I could trust.” – Brown Family
“Great daycare! Both of my kids have attended here and loved it. Teachers care about the kids and Ms. Era who runs it employs a great staff with low turnover. She is a very involved owner. My 3 year old can write her name already and when my son entered kindergarten he could already read at a first grade level.” – Segura Family
“Both of my boys have attended Kiddi Kollege since they were 1 year old and they LOVE it. Ms. Era and her staff are amazing! They truly care about the kids and provide a nurturing environment for them to learn and grow.” – Hill Family
“There is only a small hand full of people I would trust with my kids and Ms. Era is at the top of the list. They took wonderful care of my boys and the rest of the staff always made certain my kids felt loved and welcome…..my only regret is that I can’t give more stars.” – Wilson Family
