About the Family
We purchased the center at 111 East Charter in 1999. We had two children of our own at the time and could not find care that we felt was acceptable for our children. We wanted them to have advantages of a learning curriculum with other children their own ages, but we also required the hours of care that a day care could provide. We felt that the learning component was missing at many of the centers we visited.
Troy Early Childhood Center, Too was added in October 2002 to allow us to offer the same great care for infants that we offered to all other age groups. Infant care is hard to find in our surrounding communities, and quality care is even more difficult to come by.
Jeff is a business owner who brings knowledge of management to our centers. Christi has 22 years of teaching experience in child care and education and holds bachelor degrees in Elementary and Early Childhood Education and a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Early Childhood.
Our purpose is to provide the community with quality child development centers and preschool services; to provide daycare and preschool services in a developmentally appropriate program; and to enhance children’s emotional, physical and intellectual development.
Emotional Development – To provide children with the freedom, within limits, to develop as individuals while learning independence and self-discipline.
Physical Development – To provide an environment enabling children to develop their bodies as well as their minds. Furnish well-balanced meals and snacks, indoor and outdoor play and rest time to foster physical growth.
