After working in the corporate world for nearly 20 years, Denise decided to make the jump into her life-long dream and passion in opening a childcare. For two years, she planned, consulted with professionals and attended numerous classes and training before opening FTKP in 2015 and she doesn't regret one minute of it!
April worked in the accounting field for most her working career. When Denise approached her in 2013 about opening a non-traditional, new-to-Michiana childcare, April was all in and has been a part of every step along the way!
A little tidbit about Denise & April - they are sisters and in one of their college business courses they had together, they developed a business plan for a unique childcare. For many years, they would dream and talk about making that jump... until they finally did!
