Hello

We are Gabin and Nathan, proud parents of Lily and Rosi. We created The Village Kids' Club to help address a need that we observed in our community, and that we share. Namely, a comfortable, nice, clean and secure place for children K-3 to socialize, learn, and play - while giving parents flexibility to run an errand, have a workout, or take care of themselves.

We are proud of the early team we've assembled, and hope you are impressed by our background-checked teaching and program staff.
