Kristin Boyd, Center Director

"All children deserve love, safety, and an education that will last a lifetime."

Kristin started her KinderCare career in 2002 at this very center as a Toddler teacher over holiday breaks from college.  When she graduated Northern Illinois University in 2005 with a Bachelor's Degree in Child Development she returned as the Assistant Director of the North Schaumburg KinderCare and was there for 9 years.  It was a hard choice for Kristin to leave her KinderCare home but she knew she wanted to pursue her goal of becoming a Center Director.  When she returned back to the Wildflower center she knew it was meant to be and she could not be happier to be back at such a wonderful center supporting teachers to create an amazing and education rich environment for your child.

Previous Experience:

Kristin started her love of working with children with babysitting jobs, then at the age of 16 she started working in child care centers as a teacher and has worked her way up to Center Director.
