Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
As a mom, I only wanted the absolute best for my kids so I searched high and low for a perfect educational and loving atmosphere, before deciding to take matters into my own hands. A quality preschool education is crucial for each child’s stage of development. We began our preschool in 2004 in Rancho Cordova and relocated to Folsom in late 2013. Folsom Kids Academy is an in-home preschool designed to foster children between the ages of 2-5. We offer a 6:1 ratio and deliver a HighScope Curriculum daily—considering appropriateness for each child.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
We are partnered with the Child Abuse Prevention Council of Placer County and specifically Hope 4 Women, where we assist in collecting dress donations. We serve our community on a daily basis; each day, I read a book to a future astronaut, sing the alphabet to a future Supreme Court Justice and introduce the color red to a future attorney.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
Our staff comprises fully trained and certified educators, and we only hire those with nurturing hearts.
What’s your biggest job perk?
Making a positive impact on another’s life.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
The Palladio at Broadstone.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?
Lakeshore Learning Store.
And finally, customer service is?
As a preschool teacher, we don’t have “customers”—we have long-lasting relationships with families and children, which is essential for our desired path of success.
