HOW’S BUSINESS GOING? Very well, we have availability in our 2- and 3-year-old classes. Our 4-year-old class is full.

ONE THING YOU WISH EVERYONE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS: Our program offers a loving and caring environment for learning with emphasis on Christian morals and principles. We promote growth and learning through a variety of activities and Bible verses that are presented in a hands-on, developmentally appropriate manner.

SOMETHING YOU OFFER THAT A CUSTOMER WON’T FIND ELSEWHERE: Our small classes allow teachers to give individual attention to students in an atmosphere that promotes the love of learning. Our foundation-building curriculum is based on the Virginia Standards of Learning and taught through thematic units while incorporating Christian morals and values. We use all types of learning styles and enrich the students’ experiences with field trips, outdoor play, songs, and arts and crafts.

ADVICE TO YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS: First impressions are important. You have to love what you do. That love and dedication shows in all you do.

YOUR FIRST JOB: YMCA in the After School Fun Club

YOUR ROLE MODEL: Clarissa Blount. She was my kindergarten teacher at J.P. King Elementary School. Even at age 5, I knew I wanted to teach and be just like her.

THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IS: Our faculty and staff. We care for each child as if he or she was our own. We strive to involve the parents in their child’s education and daily development.
