Meet Our Owner

Michelle Smith Lank

Thank you for your interest in working at Kids World Learning Center. We are always in search of motivated, energized, willing and able individuals to join our team. If you want to make a difference in the lives of children while working in a quality program, you might be the perfect person for us. In this packet you will find more information about our program.

I became involved in the childcare industry for the children of Bulloch County and sur-rounding areas to provide a high quality and reliable childcare learning service. I cannot do this alone. Therefore, we are on a continual search for the best team members available.

The challenge I am willing to conquer is to create a safe and high-quality driven environment for the young children under our care. Would you be a right fit for our team? I truly hope your work experience will be a positive one. With that in mind, I make it my goal to provide you with the best work environment and learning opportunities possible.
