About The Director

Kris Otte Kidz Junction Director


Welcome to Kidz Junction, Incorporated!  I am the owner and director, Kris Otte. 

I have been in Child Care for 15 years.  I started my career working at a Center in Hastings MN.  I then moved to work with the Children's Home Society until I moved back to Hutchinson and worked for Ridgewater College becoming the Assistant Director of the Child Care Center.  The Child Care Center at Ridgewater changed names several times through the years and I stayed on as Director until 2009 when my husband and I purchased Beans Plus and made it into Kidz Junction.

I have always had a passion for children, I love to watch them learn and grow.  In 1999, when my husband and I were blessed with our first son, I was overjoyed with the fact that I could come to work everday and get to work with him.  Needless to say, we have always had a lot to talk about.  I loved watching him make fiends, learn new things, and experience a ton of adventures.  Our second son was born in 2003 and once again, I was able to work and play with the kids on a daily basis.  It is a joy to develop a program that is a lot of fun and at the same time provides countless learning opportunities every day. 

Not only do I get a lot of ideas from my own children, but many ideas come from listening to the parents of the children we provide care for.

My goal as a Director and Business Owner are to provide the best quality care for all children as if they were my own.  I strive in listening to what parents want and what the children need to make their day wonderful.
