All About Kids

Tess McKenzie knows firsthand the power of small business loans to create jobs and improve communities. In 2002, McKenzie launched her All About Kids day care facility and saw it grow to serve more than 60 children and employ eight people. In 2010, she added two more classrooms and created five more jobs.

When another area day care provider retired in 2011, McKenzie saw an opportunity to expand her business yet again. The facility she acquired was old and needed renovations—$102,000 worth to bring it up to her standards. With a five-year, $43,000 loan from Urban Partnership Bank, the newly renovated Lakeshore Learning Academy is on its way to bringing quality care for 43 children and creating 10 new jobs for her South Side community. Partnering with nearby CVS High School, the center also will provide childcare services and parenting classes for teen mothers who are working and going to school.
