Hello Los Angeles families! Our goal at Kevin-Kennedy Family WeeCare is to provide a safe , nurturing and developmentally appropriate learning environment in conjunction with a quality educational curriculum that assists the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of all children.
Hello! I am Chinwe Aka, the founder of Kevin-Kennedy Family WeeCare. As a mother of four children, I was inspired to start my own program because I saw a need for high-quality care in my community. I have 11 years of experience working with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged kids.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2008 from Cal State LA with additional certifications from my specialization in infant care. I also earned an Associate’s Degree in Human Development. I love learning and gaining as much education and experience as I can to provide the highest quality care.
After I got my Bachelor’s degree, I worked as a substitute teacher for Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). In 2014, I became a full-time teacher at Dolores Street Early Education Center and taught my own class of preschoolers for five years. Some of my favorite parts of being a preschool teacher included circle time, arts & crafts activities, and hands-on learning projects. I enjoyed being able to prepare my students for success in their later years.
I decided to open my own in-home child care program because I love children and truly care for them. I want to make a difference in their lives and in my community. As a mother, my goal has always been to encourage, nurture and protect children of all ages. I am proud to have raised kids who are smart, kind and ambitious. My 19-year-old daughter is currently studying Accounting at UCLA while my 17-year-old daughter, a senior in high school, is an aspiring entrepreneur. My 16-year-old son wants to be a doctor and my 14-year-old boy wants to be a lawyer. I guided my kids throughout their childhood with attention, love and support so that they were encouraged to dream big and have positive self-esteem.
I look forward to working with you to create a brighter future for our children and community.
Kevin-Kennedy Family WeeCare is located in a clean, beautiful single family home in Hyde Park neighborhood. It is walking-distance to Hyde Park Branch Library as well as several churches and schools. Parking is also made easy for pick up and drop off with a driveway .
Our home has a play area for children , a special secluded nap area, and an abundance of toys! Children will have plenty of time outdoors everyday in my spacious backyard where they can play with our slides, tricycles, wagon, basketball and more. Children need space to run, jump, and move.
At Kevin-Kennedy Family WeeCare, I want to provide a loving home away from home.
