My name is Erin Ortiz, and I am the director at Kids Kare Willow. My passion in life is children. I have three of my own! I have been working in this field for over 10 years now. I have been a preschool teacher, a grade school head teacher, toddler teacher and an infant caregiver. I grew up at Kids Kare. I went to Kiddie Kottage (now Kids Kare at the Parks) as a child and I have many fond memories of summers spent while attending there. I think my love for this career started within those walls.
Children are our future and our job is to help nurture and guide them into becoming wise, responsible, and self-assured adults. I believe that children learn best when they feel safe secure and loved. Parents also need to feel these things to have our trust when leaving their children in our care. We have a wonderful team here at Kids Kare Willow who will help provide your child with a fun learning environment. This is a company I take a lot of pride in representing, and I love welcoming new families into the Kids Kare family.
Katy Regalado Assistant Director
Hello my name is Katy Regalado. In 5th grade, I had a teacher who made a positive impact in my life, and since then, I knew I wanted to become a teacher. I began my journey with Kids Kare Schools in October of 2008 and have had the pleasure of filling many different positions within the company. I am also a mom of a fun, spunky, loving daughter who has been part of the Kids Kare family since she was 2 years old. I have had the benefit of experiencing, from both ends, how great it is to be part of the Kids Kare Family. I meet and connect with many wonderful families, and I would like to invite you and your family to come visit us and give us the opportunity to welcome you to be a part of the Kids Kare family.
