Jenasie Grace


Preschool Teacher

Hi, My name is Mrs. Grace. I am the Owner/ Director of KCC.  I have worked in Early Childhood Education for the past 12 years. I started by babysitting in my teens, then taking ECE in highschool through TBA where I job shadowed at multiple centers and worked at a daycare. I then perused my love for teaching by taking college classes at NMC and received my Child Development Associates, as well as business management courses. I have two beautiful children of my own. Adison, 13 years old and Maverick, 4. I have always had a nurturing personality. It is my mission to make KCC feel safe and inviting. I love what I do and I cant wait to share it with you.


Tesla Martin

Preschool Teacher

Hi, My name is Miss. Martin. I have always had a love for children due to me being the oldest of 9. My teaching career started 5 years ago when I began nannying for families in the area. I loved it so much I decided I wanted to teach. I am going on my fifth  year here with KCC and I plan to further my education through NMC by getting my Associates Degree. I currently have my Infant & Toddler CDA as well as my Preschool. When I am not teaching I spend my time with my son, Deland, and his Dad.  I also love spending time outside with my friends and family. I look forward to this year and I cant wait to meet you.
