“My name is Donna Daniels and I am the Program Director at Kiddi Kollege of The Legends, located in Kansas City, Kansas. I have been the Program Director since the beginning of the year 2000.
“To give you a little background of myself, I am married to my wonderful husband of 20 years and I have 2 children, a son and a daughter ages 17 and 23. I earned my CDA degree as a Child Care Specialist with The University of Arkansas Community College in Morrilton, Arkansas. I went on to receive my Social Service Designee at Kansas City Community College in Kansas City, KS and I am currently working towards my associate and arts Degree in Early Childhood Education with Rasmussen College, with only 18 credit hours remaining. I take pride in continuing my education, to make sure I am well prepared to educate our children.
“Kiddi Kollege gave me my first opportunity as a program director and I am proud to work for such a great company. Kiddi Kollege is a family friendly company, where we focus on educating young children by allowing them a chance to have a good quality education, to be better prepared once they are ready to attend elementary school. We begin taking children at the age of 1 all the way to the 5th grade.
“Our staff attends regular training in various skills, so that we are better prepared to be able to teach the children. We not only provide a great education for the children, but the staff as well as the children have fun in the process. We also provide various nutritional breakfast, lunch and snacks for the children. We provide before and after school care for the elementary children as well.
“The schools that the children attend are located in close to our center, which are John F. Kennedy and Bethel Elementary. We offer a very good curriculum program for the children as well as outdoor time so that the children remain active and healthy.I am very proud at how well the children learn and I’ve received feedback from the parents and/or grandparents of the children on how well they are learning. Some children are able to read certain books at the age of 4.
“I take my job very seriously and pride myself on how well prepared the children are when they are ready to enter Kindergarten. With our Pre-Kindergarten children, we hold a graduation each year in which the children are so proud to earn their diploma. I can truly say, Kiddi Kollege is by far the best experience you can receive.”

What Parents Say
“My son has been in your care since 2016. He has been to two different providers prior to him being in the care of Kiddi Kollege. We met challenges with the previous providers due to his way of learning which often got mistaken for behavioral issues. He was in the learning stages of potty training when he began at KK and within a couple of weeks, his teacher had him fully trained and feeling confident.
“My son, since being at Kiddi Kollege has very much excelled in his ability to read, write, and speak. I feel it has all to do with the great care and collaboration with Ms Donna, and Ms Francis and all the great teachers and how they include the parents in on how what methods they use and working together.
“Although I have a child care provide blocks from my home, I chose to continue his care with Kiddi Kollege because of the great progress he has made since being there. He has established friendships, his teachers recognize and focus on his strengths and utilize those gifts towards his success. I am truly grateful to all the staff at Kiddi Kollege #1” – Vega Family
“I would like to say how much we appreciate all the support, safety, educational development and peace of mind Kiddi Kollege has provided our daughter over the last 5 years. I also wanted to extent a special thanks to Ms, Donna for the sense of security and comfort that she provides on a daily bases that made both my husband and I feel comfortable in knowing our child was in the best of hands at Kiddi Kollege” – Williams family
