Lighting the way for children to grow in a safe and nurturing environment.

Issue 01 May 2016

Our story begins with the tragic ending of a precious child's life due to negligence at an in-home childcare center.  Our story continues with our mission to provide the highest quality education and childcare services to children of diverse ethnic, socioeconomic and family backgrounds, and provide them with a safe, nurturing home away from home.  

In this issue you will learn ways to support Kellie Rynn Academy and help make an impact to the lives of children and their parents.  
Professional Training Provides High Standards of Care
Our program will have a fully competent staff who meet national standards for the education and care of young children. However, we will also provide training for parents and guardians of each student on car seat safety check, sleep safety, CPR, fire safety and other key areas.  
The Academy Facility
Our facility will meet the highest qualifications. With generous donations we will have funds to renovate a facility to provide three classrooms that will be conducive to learning. The facility will provide qualified instructors and state of the art equipment, monitoring at all times by a camera system, and interior design will use bright colors to highlight the theme of each of these special classrooms: The Hatchlings (cribs), The Hoppers (crawling), and The High Flyers (walking).
