"This job is like being a grandma every day! I get to love them, teach them, spoil them and then send them home and then get to do it all over again the next day!"
Each day that Dawn goes to work she knows that she will make an impact on a child and or family–what an awesome responsibility! She lives in the same town that she works in and loves to attend the students baseball, football, cheerleading, and many more activities that they participate in outside the center. She can't go anywhere without running into families that attended Kids Choice and is always greeted with a huge hug. For many years you could find Ms. Dawn all over the suburbs rooting on her own two children at all of their sporting events. Being a Center Director at the only Kids Choice in Illinois and being able to provide a place for school aged children to want to attend is awesome! She is gracious to have been chosen by the company as one of the best centers based on customer retention.
Dawn has worked at the Lombard, Downers Grove, and Oswego centers before transferring to Bartlett Kids Choice 15 years ago.

Ms. Tammy has worked with children for the past 36 years. Her interest in children began during a high school Child Development Class. She started out working with in the Preschool Classroom in West Chicago. Since then, she has worked with every age group from Infants up to School age. Ms. Tammy is very excited to, once again, be working with Schoolage children. She enjoys watching them grow and learn. In her own words, "I am passionate about coming to work everyday, because I can help children reach for the impossible, write stories that others want to read, and conquer math facts. I love what I do!"
Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
""The best part of teaching is that it matters. The hardest part of teaching is that every moment matters, every day.""
Ms. Rose loves to have people honk and wave to her when she works as the crossing guard for Bartlett Elementary in the mornings and then see them again at the end of the day when they pick up their child from Kids Choice. She has one daughter and one granddaughter, Brittany, that she adores. She is nicknamed by all of us as "Grandma Rose". So when she is out and about and the children run up to her she feels that it is her family giving her hugs. She takes great pride in her room with all the artistic creations that are displayed that the children draw.
Ms. Rose has also been a school crossing guard for over 30 years.

Judy has been around children all her life. Starting at age 11 babysitting, having my own children, grandchildren and working in childcare. She is extremely crafty and loves to show how to make all sorts of amazing things. She loves to find the child's interest and then encourages them to pursue their passion. She loves watching the young minds try new and different things. When she is not driving a bus she loves to work in her yard, go to craft shows, and watch her grandchildren who are involved with everything!
Ms. Judy started at KinderCare as a four year-old teacher for three years, then worked at Kids Choice for five years. She l left to work at the center that her grandchildren attended for four years, and then returned back to Kids Choice for the past two years.
