Our Story

We’ve loved every minute of our journey!

An Idea is Born...

After 20 years of caring for children and managing programs, I decided to follow my heart and open my own daycare in our great city of Chillicothe, for the families who work, but need low cost care.

Opening at our Home...

My children and husband were supportive and helpful.  We opened in our home in October 2016.

Growing....

Our first children were an inspiration to offer more services.  By December of 2016, we were convinced that a larger, downtown location was needed for the children to have more opportunities.  Staff was hired and the historical, luxury Warner Hotel at 35 N. Paint St. was secured.  The whole family and staff pitched in to start making the changes.

The walls came alive, the toys moved in and by MAY 31, 2017, the children and staff started enjoying the space.

From May to October of 2017, the list of children attending part-time and full-time grew from 15 to 37.

Babies through age 5 enjoy the building and staff.

15 staff came on board to make the daycare the wonderful place that it is.  They worked on getting 5 trainings, to include First Aid/CPR, Child Abuse, Communicable Disease, and Early Childhood.


The staff worked hard to support each other in not only caring for the children, but to manage them using positive techniques from the KWD Toolbox.  They followed ODJFS Rules as required by the newly obtained operating license.  They received parent comments about the quality of care on a regular basis.  

The program would never be the same without the help of the student workers who dedicated many evening, summer and weekend hours to make kids happy, to make the facility clean as a whistle and to wait on their parents to "finish just that one last thing before going home.".  Kyndal Davidson, Eian Davidson, Adleigh Davidson, Avamarina Guerra, Grayson Guerra, Dijon Brooks.

COMING SOON....January of 2018

The first expansion project was decided upon in August of 2017.  It became very clear that the infants to 12 months needed more space so enrollment could continue to grow.  Mr. Cam Shipley, the building's owner graciously offered his personal storage/office space as an addition.

BABY WORLD plans started and are currently in progress.  Mr. Mark Morway, parent and volunteer, offered to draw our architectural plans for submission in October.  Everyone is looking forward to the new space in the new year.

BABY WORLD Chillicothe went from storage room, to a functional space that is now awaiting decoration, furniture and children!

We got our fence up around our OUTDOOR PLAY SPACE at KWD Chillicothe. Now we are awaiting, painting of the fence, adding outdoor play equipment and ground cover.


And, KWD New Lexington started to become a reality in April of 2018.   More to come.....
