A Message from the owner
Hi, and welcome to Tiny Thinkers! I am so excited to welcome you and your child(ren) into our childcare family. Child care is my passion, and I cannot wait to watch your child(ren) learn and grow on a daily basis! My goal is to provide quality child care for your family during your child’s most important years, and to provide your family with a safe and fun learning environment. As a parent, one of my biggest concerns was finding someone to love my children as much as I do since I could not be with them during the day. Every child deserves hugs and nurturing while learning and growing.
Tiny Thinkers has been my dream for many years. With the help of my amazing husband and the encouragement of friends, my dream has come true. My role as the owner is to oversee the child care center, staff, and programs. I will get to know every single child enrolled here, their interests, strengths/weaknesses, personalities, etc.
I worked in local daycare centers since the age of 12 until I got my current job. I graduated from Kutztown University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. From there, I worked at a local childcare center as the Supervisor of the Infant/Toddler program. While working at the daycare, I substitute taught in local school districts. I was fortunate enough to get hired by the Fleetwood Area School District in 2005. I taught 4th grade, 2nd grade, and my favorite, Kindergarten. I have my Master’s Degree in Classroom Technology and have taken 60 additional graduate level credits relating to education. I have three boys, Lucas, Rylan, and Elijah, who keep me very busy! I am very active in our community, and foster dogs with a local rescue. You will often find my family attending community events.
I look forward to devoting my passion for working with children to your family and your child each and every day.
