School Age Room at Marion Center

Hello! My name is Ellie. This is my second year working for Kids Inc. and I am happy to continue my journey at Longfellow. I have lived in Marion my whole life and even went to the Marion schools when I was young. I have two cats, but if I could I would have many more pets! Last year I enjoyed getting to know all the kids and their families and watching them grow and learn. This year I can't wait to meet and get to know our new friends! Please feel free to call (319-929-0149) or email (schoolage.kidsinc@gmail.com) me anytime you have any concerns.

Hello! My name is Grace, this is my second year working for Kids Inc.. I worked at Starry last year and I am excited to continue my journey as the director of FMI this year. My hopes for this program are that I can provide an atmosphere where the children will be able to continue working to develop basic and critical thinking skills through play. I hope that we will be able to work towards a successful year together. I believe that a successful year starts with an open communication line between parents and staff. Please feel free to call (319-929-0145) or email (schoolage.kidsinc@gmail.com) me anytime you have any concerns. I am excited to spend the year with the kiddos and help them learn and grow!

"I am Smart, I am Kind, I am Brave, and I am Loved." These are the words that my children say every morning before school.
Hi, my name is Unique Thompkins and I love my job here at Kids Inc. I am currently 26 years old and born and raised in Cedar Rapids IA. I went to school for Early childhood education and I have over 5 Years of child care experience.
When I am not working with children, I'm usually at my office because I'm also a Realtor for Skogman Realty. If I'm not working at all...then I'm playing with my puppy named Bailey or getting lost in a P.D James novel.
Anyways, thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me. I hope I can do the same and get to know you and your child! Thank you!
