About the Owners
Cindy and Joe Gifford opened the doors to Kid’s Resort new 7,000 sq. ft facility in June of 2012. Mrs. Gifford began working in her mother’s child care facility in 1982 while in a high school co-op program. She then received her degree in Family and Child Development from Southwest Texas State University in 1989. After graduating, she spent several years working in a full time facility when an opportunity to start the after school programs for Lamar CISD was awarded to her in 1997. This resulted in the formation of Tiny Steps Educational Center by Cindy and Joe Gifford. While directing 6 elementary schools and 1 private school, they realized the need for a summer camp for the kids in their community.
Mrs. Gifford began designing Kid’s Resort and saw it through the building completion. With all the things that she loved as a child, there is a large gym, large playground, a game room with arcades, science, art and an area for students to cook. Mrs. Gifford also brought in her love for animals.
Mr. Gifford has a long career in law enforcement. During his employment, he was a sergeant assigned to Rosenberg’s schools resource division for Lamar CISD until he received his training in computer forensics. Upon completion of this training, Mr. Gifford was assigned to the Federal Bureau of Investigation until his retirement in 2011. Mr. Gifford now works for Deloitte & Touche as a forensic analyst
Mr. and Mrs. Gifford were married in January 1992 in Rosenberg, Texas. Their family grew in 1997 with the adoption of their oldest children, Kristen and Patrick. It did not take long, when they met a very special lady who blessed them with their third child, Stephen in 1998. But God was not finished with his blessings. In 1998, they found themselves pregnant and Mattea was born in 1999. Now their children are in their teens. They love animals, the children at the facility and hanging out with friends.
