The Story Behind Katie's Kids

Katie

Adams-Langley

1971 - 2014

Katie's Kids was founded by a very special person, Katie Adams-Langley. Her dream of a family-like atmosphere to love, nurture and teach children about the world and our wonderful God came true when she opened Katie's Kids in 2004.  Starting with Niki, the director, Katie and 4 children on day 1, the center grew to 7 classrooms and a full staff in a short time.  Unfortunately, in 2014 the Lord called Katie home to be with Him.  We know she is looking down on us with her big smile and proud heart.
