Greetings from the Felder family. We both grew up in the Hays area before college life took us to Manhattan and Topeka. Eventually, we each made our way to Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Kansas in Topeka where we met each other and worked for nearly eight years.

Our love for children, education, and the desire to be near family sparked an interest in exploring bringing a childcare center to Hays. We have four amazing children – Rhett, Remmi, Rowan, and Ryker. The process to bring Bright Minds Academy to Hays was challenging, but we are so very excited to be able to provide this service to the community!

Our goal is to provide excellent care, structure, and educational beginnings to the children of Hays. We love helping kids learn and grow, and we appreciate you considering joining us in this dream journey. We look forward to meeting you!
