Before opening the Vine Street location in 2013 their backgrounds were as a lawyer and IT project manager. Operating the City Park West location has been a fulfilling change from their prior careers. Even though the Vine location serves many families who live in Park Hill the Meiers believe that Park Hill / Mayfair area still has a shortage of quality child care.
