My name is Evelyn Reese and I am the owner/author of this blog. I have created my blog to share child care information with parents, teachers, Directors, childcare business owners and anyone interested in quality childcare. I understand that the child care industry changes and there can be many challenges that effect child care industry as a whole.
I quit my job as an Assistant Manager with a major retailer to start my home daycare in 1995 while going through a divorce. I was tired of the retail environment which did not allow the quality time with my daughters during this difficult time. I really enjoyed working from my home and assisting other families with a safe, loving environment for their children.
My home childcare business, Precious Ones Home Daycare began to thrive very quickly. During that same time, I was able to obtain my Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential at our local University thru a grant program. This education was invaluable to my business going forward in providing quality to my families. A couple of years later, I was asked by our Pastor to open a CDC in our Family Christian Life Center. After months of market research, a comprehensive proposal was presented to our Deacon Board, and PUMB C CDC was opened in August 1998. I was hired as Assistant Director and the first students were my 6+ children from my home childcare business. A few years I was hired as CDC Director of that same center.
I believe in the biblical teachings “train up a child in in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6
I pray that this blog helps you in some way understand that quality child care is very important for all children nationwide. I plan to keep you informed of new legislation, teaching and curriculum ideas and parents resources.
Thank you for visiting!
