Who are we?
Debbie Milner, Founder and CEO
tel (408) 213-0973
Debbie founded KidsPark in 1988 out of a personal need to find quality, fun, short-term care for her young daughter, Rita, so she could juggle all the things busy moms do everyday. Debbie started KidsPark after a career in information systems with Hewlett Packard and production management in the electronics and toy industries. She is dedicated to answering this special need in the community and currently focuses on strategic issues, marketing and national expansion of KidsPark through franchises. Loving to play herself, Debbie was sure to include a plethora of art, games and toys in KidsPark’s design. Now, over 20 years later, she still finds time to play regularly. Recognition: 2010 Women of Influence from the San Jose Business Journal; 2012 Woman Entrepreneur of the Year from Women's Initiative.
