Coutney Hayes


I am one of the proud teachers at Kingdom Kidz Palace. I am 28 years old, and I started my passion for childcare in 2014. I am a very loving, caring, nurturing, and compassionate person. Am the mother of a beautiful 4-year-old daughter. My love for children led me to pursue my career in getting my Associate degree in early childhood education. I really enjoy working with preschoolers. It makes my day to see the smiles, laughter, and excitement of the children as they explore and learn in a school environment.


Julia Grant


I am a veteran in early childhood education of 24 years, also the mother of the owner Lakisheya Cooper. I started out with her as a preschool teacher in 1997 where all our children call me ‘Granny’. I always had a love and strong passion for educating children in their early stage of development. I am also a retired Chatham County School Bus Driver of 16 years. I have six children of my own, eleven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. I decided to retire as a preschool teacher, but still love to be in school environment so I decided to remain on the Head Cook for Kingdom Kidz Palace. Where I am responsible for each child having a full course health meal and snack to help keep them focus and health.
