Thanks for your interest in Kids 'R' Kids Pleasant Hill Academy, Duluth. We are NOT just another daycare!
Kids 'R' Kids Pleasant Hill Academy was opened by Julie and Doc Holliday as a locally owned and operated franchise of Kids 'R' Kids International, in October, 1994. Julie and Doc are very involved in the daily operation of the business, and are always available for parent communication. Their love of children and commitment to providing quality childcare led them to open Kids 'R' Kids. Their devotion is obvious in the high quality program that they offer today at this location.
Kristen Johnson, our Center Director, brings many years of classroom and management experience to our Center. She attended Georgia State University for her Masters degree in social Studies Education. She has over 7 years of experience working with students and teachers at the early childhood level - first as a Pre-K teacher and later as a curriculum director and trainer. She has a hands-on approach to learning and compassion for the education of all children. She feels that education is a very important journey, and is very excited to be part of your child's educational journey with our Kids 'R' Kids team.
Grace Shin, our Assistant Director, has worked at Kids 'R' Kids since the center opened. In addition to her management role, Grace leads our Private Prekindergarten Program. She is bi-lingual, which is a big help to our Korean families! Grace is much loved by both children and parents, and we are so fortunate to have Grace as a part of our team.
