Kiddin' Around Coppell was founded by two Coppell mothers, Debbie Williams and Gina Jones who recognized the need for a safe and fun place for kids to be. They realized that there was no place that they could drop their kids off, where they could be assured that they were being cared for by someone loving, who had childcare experience. A place where their kids could interact with other children in a fun environment, in their neighborhood. They opened the doors of Kiddin' Around Coppell in August and 2000 and it has been our greatest pleasure to be able to serve thousands of kids who have since come through our doors.

Kiddin' Around requires staff to be cheerful, enthusiastic, respectful, fun, and encouraging towards all children. They must obtain at least 24 clock hours of childcare training annually, pass criminal history checks and be CPR and First Aid certified. We take pride in our staff being active participants in you child's adventure at Kiddin' Around. Most our staff being moms themselves know what it takes to raise kids...a lot of love and patience. Some of our younger staff bring in new energy and the kids love playing with them. A few of our employees have come to Kiddin' Around as kids themselves and it says a lot when they chose Kiddin' Around to come back to for their first job!
At Kiddin' Around we are always looking for child care givers who love working with children, and have the necessary experience. All our employees have to undergo criminal background checks that are mandated by the state.
