Kids 'R' Kids, Nurturing and Developing Children, One Hug at a Time
The mother pulled up to the building and began the complicated process of unbuckling harnesses from car seats and extracting her three children. Just then, emerging from the building, a tall man sweeps the toddler up into his arms, gives him a high-five, and says “I got him” to the mom. Relief visible on her face, she picks up the infant, his bag, and jacket. The family is greeted enthusiastically; the staff call out to the children by name. The kids settle into their rooms, then owner Mr. Charles Miles, hands her a breakfast burrito and tells her an accident is blocking lanes on 77. She is back on the road knowing her kids are in good hands again today.

This is just another typical morning at Kids 'R' Kids of Fort Mill, an early childhood development center on Highway 160 in Fort Mill, near Gold Hill Road. Plenty of aspects of the center set us apart, including the friendliness of staff. “First and foremost, we do not babysit children,” Charles explains. “We nurture and develop all children enrolled at our "Learning Academy’”. Charles and his wife Jennifer made the decision to employ at least one male staff in each of the pre-k classes. Several of the parents have remarked that they like having a positive male figure in their child's class. The effects include a higher level of respect toward the teachers in the classroom as well as athletic engagement for kids aged three and up.
“We have been very fortunate to have a great clientele of parents and a great community to do business,” Charles says. The couple recently found a way to grow their facility by taking advantage of their weekend off hours. “We decided to begin offering party rentals. Our building is available for a child’s birthday, family gathering, or bridal shower,” explains Jennifer. They have the space and the staff to make events really special.
Please take advantage of the wonderful amenities of this facility.
Every Wednesday when you pick up your child, enjoy a Fresh Baked Cookie.
