How long have you been with CCK? And what do you do there?

I have been employed at CCK for a little over 40 years working in the infant classroom, ages 6 weeks to 1 year old.

What do you tell parents about what makes CCK special and why should they consider
enrolling their children at the Center?

I would tell the parents that CCK is very special, because of the¬†entirety¬†of our program, which addresses all the needs of each child. Our staff brings something special & unique to each classroom. They are very caring adults who want what’s best for each child. We also have an open-door policy for our parents, and they are encouraged to visit anytime without notice.

Of all the joy that must come from being on the staff, what two or three things stand out most?

That I have touched the lives of so many families in my 40 years and also that I am blessed to be a part of the CCK family.

How do you involve parents and why is it important that they be a partner in what the
Center does?

By encouraging them to participate in their everyday routine by communication, newsletters & phone calls.

What else would you like to say about the Center?

When you work at CCK, you are not just an employee, you are family.
