Where collaboration and inspiration work together to take care of the future of this country

The Proud Owners
When we decided to start a family back in 1995, we agreed on making our best effort to provide our future children the best possible education. When we moved to the United States in January 2003, our foremost priority was to find a good school for our children with strong academics and an overall stimulating environment. That determined the neighborhood we chose to live. Now our children are both in college. The oldest is going to University of Houston while the youngest is attending Sam Houston University. Children are our passion, and after evaluating several early education franchises we chose Kids ‘R’ Kids as it combines state of the art facilities plus a great curriculum. That is how we decided to embrace this project and purchased Kids ‘R’ Kids of Jersey Village in 2013. Since then, we have been investing in the school to improve the facility while hiring and retaining well qualified staff. We do not consider ourselves a daycare. Instead, we run an early learning academy where children can learn in a fun, safe, lovely and caring environment. We are rewarded every day when we walk into the rooms and kids run toward us to give us a hug and tell us a story. That is priceless. Our motive is: “We are taking care of the future of this country”.
My name is Jeannette Briceño, I am the Director at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Jersey Village and I have my whole heart invested in this school. I am a psychologist with a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Caracas, Venezuela. I moved to Houston with my husband at the end of 2007 and started working at another Kids ‘R’ Kids in February of 2008, school in which I have been the director for the past 9 years. I have a total of 18 years of experience in education from early childhood to graduate level. I have a 4 years old daughter who has been attending Kids 'R' Kids since she was six weeks old and I could not be more proud of the education she has received. I treat all children like my family and I love to help parents ease the process of enrolling their children in a preschool program. I am always available to my families and staff and I am looking forward to getting to know you better.
