    • Stephanie Collom
      Owner/Director

      My work with corporate preschools allowed me to focus on my dream of opening a preschool with a difference: a school that provides a family-like atmosphere and offers meaningful experiences in a nurturing environment for all children to learn, grow, and achieve in.

    • JoAnne Dryer
      Pre-K Teacher

      I believe that all children deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow in. I am committed to providing your child with a loving and developmentally sound foundation for a lifetime of learning.
      I feel that EduCare is like a great big hug when you walk in the door. The environment that is provided for these children is so welcoming and it feels like your second family. One of my favorite quotes is: we never stop learning because life never stops teaching!

    • Wendy Glenn
      Pre-K Teacher

      Hello! My name is Wendy and I am a teacher in the Pre-k class at Educare. I enjoy children and the opportunity to watch them grow and flourish very much.

      I feel that they allow you to be your inner child. I love working for Educare because, I feel very safe and at home here, and they are all like family to me and care very much about their employees and children. I do this for the children!!!

    • Jennifer McNair
      Food Specialist

      Having children myself, I have a passion to make nutritious foods for the children here at the center. I enjoy making new meals with a healthy twist that incorporate foods that the children may not typically eat at home.
      It is a true joy to see their smiles when I deliver their food in their classrooms and I look forward to making a difference in their healthy lifestyles here at the center.

    • Michelle Glenn
      Preschool, Early Preschool, Pre-K Teacher

      I truly believe the more kids use their hands the more they learn and have fun. My moto is the messier the task is the more fun it is.

      What I love about working at Educare is that everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated on preparing the kids for the future.
