It has been Michele's goal throughouit her adult life to make a difference in people's lives.
Michele's reason for buying the day care: "I love children, I love people and I love working. These loves of mine drive me to want to improve people's lives in any way I can. I find it very rewarding. My hope is to take a good day care and make it into a fabulous daycare and educational setting! I want to make it an environment that people want to come to, especially children, but also the whole family. I want computers, classrooms, a beautiful nursery, lots of activities, lots of community participation, and outreach to local organizations that can help us to improve. Not only that, I want quality staff that not only love children but love to come to work because it is a good place to be. We have great staff now and we have begun to make changes. The nursery is remodeled, cameras have been installed that parents are welcome to view at any time, we have summer activities planned, I bought the first computer and installed internet and this is just the beginning.
Kim Serafini is my co-director and she has a dgreee in child development. She is putting together a fantastic curriculum for the preschool classes. We plan to run the classes beginning this fall. Two and a half hours in the morning andf two and a half hours in the afternoon. Three and four year olds will attend Tuesdays and Thursdays. Four and five year olds will attend Monday, Wednsday and Fridays. It is all very exciting!
This past weekend we were in the Memorial Day Parade and we will have a booth at Puckety Church in August. We will be active in the community. Keep watching for Bon Air Child Care Center, LLC! Great things are coming to our children and we have lots to look forward to!
