PARENT’S ROLE

on a personal note...

     As an owner/lead teacher of a licensed home daycare for the last six years, I have learned a great deal from the children, I have taught and cared for.  I learned that young children are eager to learn new things each and every day.  I realized that our daily lesson period was the most enjoyable time for not only the children but also for me.  This is why I have decided to make the transition from childcare to preschool.  I have a strong passion for teaching young children.  My years of experience, training and education in Early Childhood Development have prepared me to provide a quality education to young children.  Teaching is my passion in life and I feel extremely fortunate to be able to do what I love each day.

     I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle over the past year, at Little Smiles Daycare.  She has been such an amazing teacher and caregiver.  From the start, the children were immediately drawn to her.  Michelle has always had a passion for children and exudes such enthusiasm with them on a daily basis.  I couldn't think of anyone else I would rather have as a partner in the classroom.  We both look forward to providing quality care and education to your child and for many years to come.
