Community Highlights: Meet Brenda Kithcart of Kreative Kidz

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brenda Kithcart.

Hi Brenda, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
It all started with taking a leap of faith and branding my personal babysitting services back in January of 2016, or so I thought.

I was promoted consistently on my Facebook business page for months while preparing to marry my high school sweetheart. Things were going, but not too much. I had no idea where God was taking this vision, but I told myself I would stay on this ride for at least 5 years before calling it quits.

After getting married that June, I continued to promote and decided to go even further and create a logo. Shortly after showing the logo off to my Facebook Audience, the inquiries began pouring in. A friend that I went to high school with reached out needing transportation services to pick up her daughter from school each day.

Although I worked full time, I was determined to still fulfill her need. That was when I hired my husband and mother to assist me, as I would be unavailable. As I continued to be consistent, more inquiries came in and we were on to about 4 transportation services contracts by that October having income on a weekly basis.

We were excited to become a one-stop shop for parents and their childcare in the area. Our occasional and date night services were also gaining traction and I began to hire others who I knew from undergrad who also enjoyed working with children and giving parents peace of mind.

In August 2017, my husband and I welcomed our first child, and I knew I had to slow things down a bit for myself. That is when I began caring for children in my home and growing my dream of owning a Drop-In Childcare Center. I wanted to reach more families and supply the much-needed services families needed.

By September 2018 that dream began to become a true reality. I received the opportunity to occupy a space throughout the week and grow my company. Although that location didn’t last long, I worked even more diligently to receive my own space and continue to provide many parents peace of mind.

By April 2019 that goal was achieved and the lasting memories for children and peace of mind for parents continued to grow more and more!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Whew! No, this ride has been extremely bumpy. But I wouldn’t change it ONE BIT! The ups and downs of my journey have shaped me into the woman I am today.

The biggest struggle I faced was continuing to grow the company through the pandemic. We had only been operating our Drop-In Center less than one year, I had JUST given birth to our second child, and thought Kreative Kidz NC wouldn’t make it through the flustering storm.

But that season is what truly grew my faith in more ways than one and has allowed me to see what consistent hard work and starting at the bottom can create!

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Kreative Kidz NC is a local childcare service company in Raleigh-Durham, NC, where it is our mission to provide lasting experiences with children, while their parents receive peace of mind.

Servicing families since 2016 in the form of Nannying, Occasional & Date Night Sitters, Drop-In Childcare, & Event Childcare. We do our best to provide a safe, quality, and memorable experience to the children we serve through every service offering we provide!

What has been the most important lesson you’ve learned along your journey?
The most important lesson I’ve learned along my journey is to embrace the journey.

I would have never imagined I would grow up to become the owner of a childcare service company where I am able to use my gifts and allow others the opportunity to others to also complete the mission that we have been blessed to accomplish.

By embracing the journey, I have learned to enjoy the lows just as much as the highs, because the lessons of lows are what have impacted my success the most.
