“Action may not always bring happiness; but there is no happiness without action. ”-Benjamin Disraeli

Elina enjoys working with kids because no single day at work is the same. She admires children's endless energy, creativity and resilience. They make her a more knowledgeable person because they're curious about everything. Helping children and their families is the most rewarding job I can think of. It brings a huge smile to her face knowing she is able to help kids achieve their full potential.  

Just as we are, you'll be thrilled to have Elina helping your child in their before and after school adventures!

More About Our Programs

"I just wanted to let you know that Trisha does a outstanding job with Kids Adventures for Landmark!  She is caring and my son Dylan loves her.  She keeps them entertained and cares for them.  She is a asset to the program.  Trisha is organized and keeps the parents informed."

Andrea Cox - Landmark Academy Parent

"The parents are thrilled. The children are thrilled...Kids' Adventures worked closely with our staff to craft a program that would meet the needs of our school and children...[and] our site director is an integral part of our staff."

Beth Morganfield Lawrence Elementary School

"KA provides not only quality care but educational support and social emotional support for each of my daughters."

Garrett Rosa Principal

"I absolutely love Kids’ Adventures. Every time I am there the staff is positive and upbeat. As a working mom, it can sometimes be difficult to drop your kids off before you head to work; but my son is always happy when I drop him off and pick him up, which always just makes the whole process so much more enjoyable. There is always so many interactive things for the kids to do, and I always feel that my child is in professional and capable hands. I would recommend this program to anyone!"

Jennifer Ewing English Department Chair, Palmer Ridge High School

"Kids' Adventures is great! My daughter loves coming to after school care and is disappointed when we pick her up early."

Joy Moore Vanguard Parent

"“We are especially thankful for the summer program schedule that includes field trips, swimming, and sports days. When both parents in the home work this service is invaluable, and keeps our children engaged in their community surroundings. We appreciate the countless hours it must take to coordinate events and services like these for so many children, and absolutely support efforts to continue this process. Likewise, the after school homework program alleviates stressful hours at home working and provides our family with quality time to enjoy each other. In short, we love KA and the impact it has on our children and our family.”"

"When you wake up in the morning and you have butterflies in your stomach because of the exciting day ahead you know you love where you work. You have butterflies because you come in each day and have to find the courage to be vulnerable and lean in to the uncomfortable to grow a little more each day."
