We want families to have the same and equal opportunities for their children. In brief, each week, we have a specialty day for the children that includes various activities, fire prevention seminars, the Colorado Eagles’ players making special appearances, professional golf instruction, and much more.

About the CEO Mrs. Black  &  After School Kindness

I am proud to say that After School Kindness, Inc., a childcare program in our community, was founded by my father, Mr.Black. He dedicated his time and effort to establishing a program that has positively impacted the lives of many children and families. After years of leading and growing the business, my father has decided to retire, passing on the responsibility to me, his daughter, to continue the family business.


I have the opportunity to step into the role of owner and leader of After School Kindness, Inc. It is my goal to carry forward the vision and values that my father instilled in the program. Building upon his hard work and success, I am committed to providing exceptional care, fostering a nurturing environment, and maintaining strong relationships with our staff, the community, and the families we serve.


As I take the reins of this family business, I am dedicated to upholding the traditions and principles that have made After School Kindness, Inc. a trusted and beloved childcare program. I am excited to contribute my own passion and expertise to further enhance the program, ensuring that children continue to receive the highest quality care and educational experiences.


I am grateful for the foundation that my father has laid and the trust he has placed in me to carry on his legacy. With the support of our dedicated team and the continued trust of our families, I am confident in our ability to build upon the success of After School Kindness, Inc. and continue to make a positive impact in the lives of children in our community.
