We Grow Kids is the realization of a dream our family has to offer the best childcare available to every child. Our mission is to provide a center where children of all abilities can learn, play, make friends, and have fun! Our well-trained and experienced staff will give your child the love and care they deserve. 

Come Grow With Us. 


Owner, Pam Kleinwachter, is the mother of seven children. She has almost 25 years of experience as a licensed childcare provider, 10 of those years as a group daycare home. As a licensed foster parent for 15 years, Pam has cared for many children as well as some of the most fragile. 


Director, Amy Dhuse, is Pam's daughter and the mother of three sons. Amy received her Bachelor Degree from Millikin University with specialties in Education, Psychology/Sociology and Business. 


Pam and Amy have both received training in NG tube feeding, bolis feeding, apnea monitoring, nebulizer treatments, wound and fracture care, adaptive equipment and glucose monitoring. Children with special needs have always been welcome in the Kleinwachter home and daycare. The staff at We Grow Kids are not trained medical professionals, but they do their very best to provide specialized care when necessary. Teamwork between parents, staff, and your medical providers will help us make adaptations as needed. 


Teachers at We Grow Kids are carefully chosen for their experience, training, and ability to help your child grow and develop in a loving environment. Teachers are required to complete 15 additional hours of training in specific childcare issues annually. First Aid and CPR/Heimlich Maneuver classes are provided to all staff.
