Executive Director, Site Director – West Center
My name is Cheryl Franks. I have been with KDCC since September 2000. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne. I enjoy working with children, but my passion is working with infants and toddlers. I have 3 grown children, 3 granddaughters, and a grandson. My family lives in Colorado and North Dakota, so I get to travel. I have worked with children of all ages in a variety of capacities for over 40 years.
Site Director – East Center
My name is Brooke and I am the Site Director at the Kendallville Day Care Center – East. I have been married since 2008 and my husband and I have a beautiful, joyful, little girl, and a spunky cat. I have been working in childcare for over 7 years. I obtained my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2010 and a Bachelor in General Studies in 2012 from IPFW. I have lived in Kendallville my entire life and attended this very facility when I was younger. I enjoy young children’s curiosity and wonder while they learn and discover for the very first time. I am passionate about this field because these children are tomorrow’s future and early childhood education is a foundation for future success.
