Grand Opening Held for Circle K Kiddie Ranch

The Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house for Circle K Kiddie Ranch located at 16944 Highway 62 S in Orange.

Owner Carol Daigle and Director Jana Daigle report that they started this business back in 2000, but after Hurricane Harvey they had to completely rebuild. Circle K is proud of their facility where Lakeshore has donated the furniture for each room to make their center beautiful. During the open house, they gave tours of the facility and shared how they run their center every day.

Circle K is a Texas School Ready Participant where their program prepares children for Kindergarten. They also have a 4-Star Quality Rated Program awarded by Texas Rising Star and hold that as the only facility in Orange County. The staff at Circle K are all certified to meet state requirements, but they also go above and beyond and attend trainings on a frequent basis to make sure that the children at the center are receiving the best care and are learning to meet their full potential. The transportation staff service over five of the area schools to pick up children after school and get homework completed so that when they get home they can play and enjoy family time.
