Panelist Bio


Kristi Reddick-Givens
Kids of Excellence Learning Center

Kristi Reddick-Givens is the owner and director of Kids of Excellence Learning Center and has been in the childcare industry for more than sixteen years. Since 1999 Kristi has devoted her professional career to the development of young children.

Kristi was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. She attended John McDonough High School, holds a Bachelors and Masters in Social Work from Southern University in New Orleans, and a Masters in Early Childhood Education from the University of New Orleans. She is a Louisiana Pathways Child Care Development Trainer at the highest level, Level 4. and is a Licensed Child Care Health Consultant. She has Accreditation from the University of Queensland in Level 3 Primary Care Triple P working with Positive Parent Program. She has presented at the National Conference here in New Orleans. She holds National Administrator Credential and CDA PD Specialist for Council for Professional Recognition.

When faced with the challenge of finding affordable and quality early childhood education for her own kids, Vicki’s initial goal became to provide the most essential education for kids. Through experiences of injustices of social economic status, race, gender, and lack of resources, her goal to provide quality education for children became a passion to provide a quality education for all.

Kristi is dedicated to providing the best education for kids, regardless of their social, economic, or racial status. She educates the students holistically, not only having a strong academic presence but strong social and cultural presence as well. Kristi has established a community among the center, welcoming of the parents, providing them with resources and opportunities, and constructing a supportive system.

It is Kristi’s goal to eliminate the disparities in the education system, and provide students from the community with not only quality education, but opportunities as well.
