Jenasie Grace

Director/ Owner

Hi, My name is Mrs. Grace. I am the Owner/ Director of KCC.  I have worked in Early Childhood Education for the past 9 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, 11 years old and Maverick, 2.5. 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

Lead Teacher for Infant/Toddler Class

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 3 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 third  year here with KCC and I plan to further my education through NMC by getting my CDA for Preschool. I currently have my Infant & Toddler CDA. When I am not teaching I spend my time with my son, Deland, his Dad and our 2 dogs.( Thor, and Zeus) I also love spending time outside with my friends and family. I look forward to this year and I cant wait to meet you.

Hi I'm MaKayla. I am from Buckley, MI and I love the outdoors. I have spent my whole life caring for others whether it was at a senior home or childcare. I enjoy working with children because they are so honest and innocent, helping them become who they are is a very rewarding feeling. I love seeing past students out and about and the excitement they have for seeing me warms my heart. I cant wait to meet you and your kiddo next.
