Where collaboration and inspiration work together
Miranda & Chris Carlson
Hello! Our names are Miranda & Chris Carlson and we are the owners of Kids R Kids Crabapple which we purchased in 2021. We have two wonderful children, Ledger and Holland, along with an adorable golden doodle named Bentley. Before purchasing Kids R Kids Crabapple we had long talked about taking this path and are excited everyday to be here. Whether it is a first time parent or a parent with years of experience, we know that choosing an early childhood learning center is an important family decision. Our goal is to provide the best preschool experience for every family that enters our school so that they may leave with the peace of mind knowing that their child is receiving unmatched care and education everyday.
Hello! My name is Sydney Vinson and I joined the Kids R Kids Crabapple family in May of 2021. Before I came on board I worked at four other Kids R Kids locations in the North Atlanta area. My role at Kids R Kids Crabapple is an enrollment specialist. From your first phone call to your first day, my goal is to ensure all families receive the highest quality of care. I have had a passion for working for children my entire life. I was raised in Kids R Kids early learning academies and began working in them when I was 16 years old. Over the years I have had the joy of taking care of many children, watching each of them grow and flourish has been the most rewarding part of my career. I have one son named Jett who attends elementary school at Woodward Academy in Johns Creek where we reside. As a mother, I understand how important it is that your child's school provide a premier learning experience while maintaining the most excellent standard of care. I aim to exceed these expectations everyday with our families.
Hello my name is Ashley Handley and I am the Assistant Director at Kids R Kids Crabapple. I have been with Kids R Kids Crabapple family since 2019 and have an additional 11 year of experience in the early childhood education field. I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Development and Technical Management. I have always had a passion for working with children, and I love building relationships with each family and child. I was born and raised in Minnesota and moved to Georgia three years ago with my husband and two dogs. We will welcome our first daughter in late 2022. My favorite part about Kids R Kids is the "hug first, then teach" philosophy. I cannot wait to welcome you to our school!
My name is Laura Argroves and I have been the Curriculum Coordinator here at Kids R Kids Crabapple since August 2021. I reside in Cumming with my husband Jeff and little dog Champ. My journey in the early childhood education field began at eighteen when I taught preschool while attending Anderson University. After moving back to Roswell where I lived as a child and attended Centennial High School, I furthered my career in Early Childhood Education. I taught two year old's which was and still is my favorite age for fifteen years until I went into administration. I absolutely love being apart of this industry as it has so many rewards. I wake up and pinch myself that I am so fortunate to have a career that I hold so dearly to my heart. Being with children and watching them grow and achieve milestones for the first time makes my heart so full.
