In the center of Kids First’s lower level is ‘The Round Wall’-- a circular structure wrapped in photobiographies of the over 175 staff members from each of the many departments that make up Kids First Sports Center.

As you stroll around the wall and scan the bios, you’ll quickly notice our staff is a team of diverse talent from across the U.S. and beyond. Kids First employees hail from Maine to Oregon, Arizona to Massachusetts, Texas to Virginia, even Mexico and Ireland.

  • What draws people from all points to Cincinnati to practice their craft of educating children?
  • Why do Kids First employees drive from as far as Kentucky and Indiana to work each day?

We like to think it’s the Kids First Mission, “To develop happy, healthy, responsible children.”

We like to think it’s because they belong to an amazing team of personalities who specialize in “doing good things for kids.”

And, we like to think that in all the world, there’s no place like Kids First, not just for kids and families, but for employees as well.

Kids First is ALWAYS looking for exceptional people.

We diligently follow our 7 Hiring Mantras in our quest to employ the very best.

#2 - We shall go short staffed before we go poorly staffed.
#3 - When in doubt, do not hire. 
#4 - Adopt a recruiting mentality - remain in hiring mode 24/7/365.
#5 - Expect to be underwhelmed and hire only those who WOW you (let go of good, hold out for great). 
#6 - Train and lead in a manner so you can hire and promote from within. 
#7 - When you realize a hiring mistake, act swiftly, remembering your duty is to do the greatest good for the greatest number.
