Meet the Owner
As a college student at Youngstown State University and a mother of three, I realized the importance of preschools that would meet the needs of working families in a loving and caring environment while beginning their lifelong journey of learning. As a mother and a student, I understood the struggle parents face as they leave their children in another person’s care.
So, in 2004, I opened Hopes & Dreams Preschool and Daycare. At that time I had three full-time and six part-time children enrolled. The staff included me and another full-time employee. Within three months of opening, I had to hire additional full-time and part-time employees. The center grew by leaps and bounds. Parents of the children loved the top quality care and individual attention their children received. It did not take long for the community to know that Hopes & Dreams was different. I was more than a preschool owner; I was a mother who treated the children in my care with the love and respect they deserved. Children were taught by degreed teachers and graduated from the preschool program more academically and emotionally ready than their peers entering kindergarten. In just our first year, Hopes & Dreams Preschool was quickly becoming one of the most recognized programs in the area.
Since opening the preschool, I have had another child. I am now a proud mother of 4 children and owner of a preschool that I am proud my children attend. I am a very active part of the preschool and continually strive to offer the best care possible.
