Kainee Bram shares her story about stepping out in faith to open her business, a chain of mother’s day out programs and a preschool in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Mother’s Day Out
A mother’s day out program is similar to a daycare. Parents drop off their children for a set amount of time. These children are cared for by a professional staff who go through a background check, and receive CPR and other required training.
A traditional daycare may be a full-time, Monday through Friday operation. Whereas, a mother’s day out program may be open a few days a week for a limited window. This kind of program is designed to give the stay-at-home parent additional support. While the child is in a mother’s day out program, parents can run errands, attend a church bible study, or just take a break.
If you’re thinking, “How hard can it be as a stay-at-home parent?” shame on you! Parenting is hard. While many of us are doing what work in an office, an oil rig, or some other business, a stay-at-home parent is staying vigilant keeping a baby from getting hurt, and also pours into the development of that child…for free! A program like what Kainee offers can give a parent a much needed window to take care of things with focus and peace of mind.
Kainee Bram was the former Children’s Ministry Director for Church Unlimited a number of years before venturing into business for herself with mother’s day out programs, a preschool, and daycare in Corpus Christi, Texas. Her mission is to provide parents the opportunity to engage in other activities while their children are cared for in a safe, loving environment designed for that child’s developmental needs.
She partnered with local churches and a mixed martial arts dojo in the Corpus Christi area to launch her first two locations. Later, as she found success, there was an opportunity to purchase and take over a daycare in Corpus Christi. It included a preschool. This episode shares how she navigated the waters of licensing, hiring, and state regulations to create her dream business.
She currently lives, works, and attends church in Corpus Christi, Texas, with her husband Scott.
