Building a strong sense of community is key to a center’s success – and what better way to build community than to throw a party? On Saturday, August 19, more than 100 current and prospective parents and their children came together to celebrate the grand opening of our newest KinderCare Learning Center in Round Rock, Texas.
Center Director Sheila Rafat and her team engaged children in families in activities from our curriculum – from glitter-filled sensory bottles to galaxy gak, there was something for everyone.
“Feedback from our grand opening event has been glowing,” said Center Director Sheila Rafat. “Our registered families appreciated being able to come in and explore the center with their children prior to the first day of school. New families were impressed with the space, equipment, and highly educated and engaging teacher team. Overall, it was a huge success! The entire team is extremely proud to be representing KinderCare in Round Rock!”
Round Rock KinderCare is the fourth KinderCare Education center to open this year. The new building features a sensory wall in the lobby, upgraded security features (like fingerprint scanners), plenty of space for parent communication boards and evidence of learning, and more.
“I can’t say enough good things about [the center],” said Jesse Coulter, mommy blogger and influencer who attended the grand opening event. “It’s the most beautiful school I’ve ever seen!”
The Round Rock community joined in on the grand opening fun. Local AAA baseball team mascot Spike and the Round Rock fire department stopped by to mingle with families. Neighbors from the retirement community across the street were excited to see the new center.
“We’re honored to serve the Round Rock community,” said Cheslee Escobedo, regional vice president. “The children we’ll serve are the future of Round Rock – and I’m so excited to be a part of that.”
Leading up to the grand opening, KinderCare participated in two community events in the Austin/Round Rock area – MommyCon and Frontier Days.
Welcome to the family, Round Rock!
