Letter from the owner

I first became interested in child care in 1998 when, oddly enough, I was trying to find a quality preschool program for my first son, Shane. Unfortunately, our household is a two income household and as much as I wanted to stay home with him, reality was that I had to work.

Like most parents, I knew exactly what I wanted for my child and I wouldn't and couldn't stop until I found it. I was looking for an environment that would provide an engaging curriculum, gentle guidance that would foster self esteem, individualized attention, and a staff that obviously enjoyed where they worked and what they did.

The search was on. I can't recall how many centers I visited that day. But I can recall the sense of disappointment and emptiness I felt when I left each and every one of them. The rooms were small, the staff was unexcited, not to mention unfriendly, and the curriculum and/or daily lesson plans were written by someone (a teacher, caretaker or assistant teacher) who had very little, if any, education or experience in early childhood development. WOW! I'll keep a private caretaker for awhile longer. Not one of these places were suitable for me or my child.

Six months later, another pregnancy and an even greater desire to be with my children forced the issue again. With the encouragement of a college friend who owns a preschool in League City, I looked into running my own preschool. I had the experience and education necessary to run a business and I knew what this mother wanted for her child. Surely there were others like me out there.

In November, 1998 my husband and I entered the child care business and enjoy each and every day. Now, no matter how busy or how stressful a day can be, all I have to do is walk 15 feet into a classroom full of children with nothing but hugs, smiles and kisses to give. Nothing can be better than this!
