Our Mission and Vision
Bonnie’s Kids Childcare Center is a licensed early care and education center with staff trained to provide outstanding education, individual attention, and loving care for the children.
Our mission is to promote and maintain self-worth and self-esteem, physical, mental, and emotional growth of children through creative play and structured learning environments. Our program celebrates the diversity and uniqueness provided by each child and family. The curriculum is designed for the development level, abilities, and interest of the children.
The purpose of the center is to provide a safe, clean, pleasant, and caring environment in which each child may develop emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually. This is to be accomplished by providing developmentally appropriate activities and guidance.

Bonnie’s Kids Childcare Center began on November 10, 1987. The original location was at 1324 Frederick Road. The center was licensed for 74 children. Bonnie had a home center for many years. With a growing demand, Bonnie then began a church child care center in 1985. After Bonnie was not able to run the church center to her specification, she opened Bonnie’s Kids in 1987 along with her daughter, Tammie.
With a demand for more enrollment, Bonnie purchased land on Enterprise Drive in 1992 and began developing plans for the first phase of this center. Bonnie’s Kids at 2314 Enterprise Drive opened in May 1993 with a licensing capacity of 165 children. Tammie graduated from Auburn University in Family & Child Development in 1993. With a growing demand for quality child care, Bonnie began to plan for an expansion. In 1998, we purchased the land adjoining the preschool playground.
In 1999, Bonnie’s Kids began construction for four preschool rooms, a new larger preschool playground, and a new parking lot for additional parking for staff and parents. In August 1999, Bonnie’s Kids opened the new classrooms and is now licensed for 225 children. In 2009, Bonnie finally retired. After being Director and Co-Owner since 1991, Tammie has taken over as Owner and Director of Bonnie’s Kids with the same passion and vision that was founded in 1987. We currently hold enrollment to 200 children to keep child-staff ratios lower than state requirement for most classrooms.
We are thankful to have been given the opportunity to work with so many wonderful children, parents, and employees. We look forward to many years of serving the child care needs of families in our community. Thank you for being part of our history!
