We are a local family in the Lakewood Ranch area focused on being a true community partner within our neighborhood. We spent twenty years working in senior Management, Sales & Service, Operations and Project Management roles for Fortune 100 companies. While that may not seem as a ‘natural’ path to early childhood education, we have gained valuable experience in compliance, well-managed processes and design, customer service, problem solving and most of all leading with passion. We are most passionate about our children and family. Our focus is to provide a stimulating early learning and childcare experience which promotes each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development in a warm, loving, and safe environment.
