Jennifer Kelly
The Gift of Kids Daycare and Preschool
5130 Golden Foothill Pkwy.  |  El Dorado Hills  |  Business Park 1
Serving children ages 6wks-10years
Infant Lic. 093616199 • Pre-School Lic. 093616198

My name is Jennifer Kelly, the owner/director of The Gift of Kids Daycare and Preschool. I’ve lived in El Dorado Hills for 14 years and I have two children ages 16 and 19.

My journey into the childcare field began in 1999 when I was left disappointed in my search for ”the right” childcare for my son. After going through many programs and with my daughter on the way (now a junior at Oak Ridge High School), I began to reflect upon my family’s needs. It was then that I changed my career focus and ventured into childcare. My mission is to provide a nurturing, loving, safe and educational environment for every child. 

On June 10, 2000, I opened my home to three newborns, two 2-year-olds and a 3-year-old. I immediately knew that this was my calling.  Everything felt so natural. I went back to school full time for early childhood education and started my own preschool program that incorporated home-cooked meals, planned outings, and practiced an advanced curriculum with structured activities that fostered learning.

In 2007 I opened a small pre-school with 60 families while continuing my in-home daycare. In 2010 I expanded again, bringing my preschool and in home-daycare under one roof - The Gift of Kids Daycare and Preschool. It has been a dream to serve so many children and give families the satisfaction I never felt when my son was in daycare. I pride myself on offering a safe place for families to bring their children.

The Gift of Kids currently has 32 wonderful, loving, professional teachers and over 200 children. We provide care for infants, preschoolers, private kindergarten, and school agers. Although the size seems large, the classrooms have a homey feel where the teachers truly care about each child’s development. We work together on communicating with parents and developing each child’s individual needs. It delights me that so many children have the opportunity to experience our program.

Serenity Spa SOUL Yoga is a temple that has been founded upon the principles of “Being Woman.” “Being Woman” is assuming the responsibility to inspire purpose in all, to protect others and promote their self worth, to cultivate intelligent symbiotic relationships with others and with nature, and to be an advocate for those who cannot advocate for themselves. It is Woman to realize harmony through higher principles and values of integrity, honesty and understanding.

We are a tribe built with the intent to serve and it is our purpose to heal others with the human hand and the human heart. We endeavor to walk alongside our community: To inspire those whose paths we cross, to remind them how precious they are to humanity, to shed light when life feels dark, to hold their hand as they discover their purpose in life, and to always believe in miracles. Through massage therapy and the practice of skin care we facilitate healing on the physical layers of our community. Our Hot Belly Yoga and Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga classes provide our students with the tools to reclaim their individual power. It is Primordial Sound Meditation that expands our students’ awareness and gives them the opportunity to rewrite the story of their own life.

We are blessed to be able to celebrate the magic that each one of our community members hold. Forever, we will be humbled by those that walk through our doors to give us the honor of being a part of their journey. It is today and every day that we stand tall together for what is true, for what is pure, for what is honest, and for what is Woman.

Lees' Boutique
4110 Datsun Ct.  |  Shingle Springs
530-677-4891  |

Our boutique has been lovingly coined a "hidden treasure" by many. It is within our family feed store that's been in the community for 37 years. We have carried western clothing for decades, but with the recent shift in western style becoming more main stream, we decided to branch out and try something new. 

We took a chance 2 years ago and turned the empty suite next door into a beautiful boutique. Now we not only cater to the "cowgirl" with jeans and boots, but we also have dresses and sandals for that special night out. We truly have something for everyone, and love to help women find clothes that makes them feel beautiful. We hand pick every piece that comes in, and find items that are not only unique but priced well. We have name brands such as Miss Me and Silver Denim, but are constantly finding new vendors and keeping our selections fresh. If you haven't visited Lees' Boutique in Shingle Springs, take a short drive up the hill and see for yourself why Folsom and El Dorado Hills Style readers voted us their favorite boutique!
