Hello. My name is Lakesha Degraphenreed and I am the founder of the incredible ABC Kidz . I have 13 years of experience in the field of childcare. I am confident in saying that ABC Kidz offers a good infant care and preschool programs in Indiana!

At ABC Kidz, we are dedicated to the belief that all children can be challenged to reach their maximum potential in a welcoming, caring and safe environment that promotes both academic and social programs. We motivate our children to develop an interest and excel in academics and technology while building positive character traits.

Our staff here in Indiana attends 15 hours of early childhood education state training every year and continues to receive company training as well. Each member of our staff is also certified in CPR and first aid and has passed a state background check. Our classroom teachers are challenged to provide an enriched curriculum that reaches all children.
