Andrea Kern, Center Director
Andrea has lived in the Bay Area all her life and is very proud to have had the opportunity to have worked at the Cupertino KinderCare since it opened in 2005. It has been a great journey for her to see all the children that started in the Infant room grow up and go off to Kindergarten. When she first joined KinderCare she started as a Preschool Teacher and then later became an Infant Teacher and then Assistant Director. Andrea has experience in being in and out of the classroom. She enjoys sharing stories with families in the evening during pick up time, about the fun and adorable things their child did during the day!
Andrea has experience as a Preschool teacher.
"I love coming to work every day and seeing the smiles on the children's faces. It's so neat to see how fast the children grow and become more independent each year. I enjoy being a part of a wonderful team that works close together to make sure we are providing a happy and safe place for the children to have the opportunity to learn and grow. "

Nicole was born and raised in the Bay Area. She moved away from the Bay Area, to study at California State University of Chico. There she continued on with her studies, and graduated with a B.A. in Art Studio, and a Minor in Family Relations. She was introduced to our KinderCare family in May of 2008. Nicole started as the Phonics Teacher /Support Teacher, and then moved to the Assistant Director position shortly after. Working actively apart in all aspect of the centers daily needs has given her a strong appreciation for early childhood education, and being able share the small milestones that the children achieve each and everyday.
Prior to working with KinderCare, Nicole has had several years of volunteer work, working with children of all ages and later started her teaching career at another center with children 2 years of age.
"Being able to see how each child expresses themselves through their storytelling, their artwork and their play, is what inspires me to come to work each day. The children's warm smiles and sense of creativity is a wonderful thing to be a part of."
