Hi my name is Ms. Stacey. I am the Owner/Director of Little Wonders Childcare & Learning Center. Prior to my current role as owner/director of Little Wonders I was fortunate enough to have had experiences that helped guide me to where I am today. I graduated from Bloomsburg University with my Bachelor’s Degree in Education. I worked as a paraprofessional and basic skills teacher in an elementary school until I was presented with an opportunity to become the Director of a childcare center in Pennsylvania. Although I never really saw myself in this role, I quickly began to love what I was doing, especially the opportunity to work with families and children in an environment in which parents are genuinely grateful to find reliable and quality care for their children. To learn more about running a successful childcare center, I went back to school and earned my Early Childhood Education Director certification from Lehigh Carbon Community College in December 2009. Using this knowledge and my experience as a childcare Director, I opened Little Wonders in August of 2013.
My husband Chris and I are the proud parents to two young men, Cody and Kevin, who live in Maryland. My husband and I are trying to adjust to this new chapter as “empty nesters” and have put energy previously devoted to our own children into helping families raise their children by providing them with a safe, nurturing environment for learning and growing.
When I am not spending time at Little Wonders or spending time with my family, I enjoy reading everything from professional resources and magazines to novels, history books and children’s books. I enjoy doing any kind of puzzles including jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles and Sudoku puzzles. I am fascinated with history, genealogy and Elvis! I am a member of the bell choir at my church and I love to sing……..just ask my staff!
