Stephanie McBride

Hello! My name is Stephanie McBride and I am an Education Coordinator at The King's Keep Learning Center. That means I get to spend loads of time in all our classrooms, helping our teachers provide the best in curriculum and activities for your little ones! I have been part of the KKLC family for 8 years, and have taught in preschools for a total of 15 years. I have spent time as a teacher with many of our age groups including Toddlers, Three’s, Pre-K, and TK.

I attended college for Early Childhood Education at Stanley Community College. I married my husband, Chad, in March of 2004 and we have 2 beautiful girls, Lauren and Ava. In 2013 we added another sweet little girl to our family, our dachshund mix, Layla. On the weekends we love taking in all the fun activities our community has to

offer from festivals to restaurants. Even as

a native of Concord there is always something new to find close to home.

Thank you for the opportunity to care for your children daily!
