This week we had our unannounced annual licensing visit at our Hamline location. It's always stressful as no one wants a citation, but citations can be learning experiences. Ashley was prepared and the licensor was impressed with her organization. We will get a fee for a background study violation...we had a staff with two spellings of her name and so there was an issue with fingerprinting...a little out of our control. We received 3 fix it tickets; one for missing an address for an emergency contact, one for not having the names of the cereals on the menu and the third for plungers being in the upstairs bathroom that the Pre-K class is using during construction. Everything was corrected that day and Ashley sent off the corrections to the licensor a few hours later. Good work Ashley!

Hello! I have been in the early childhood field since 1989 when I took my first job as an aide in an infant classroom. I've been an infant, toddler and preschool teacher, as well as an Assistant Director and Director for both corporate centers and Head Start before opening my own program in 2012. I have an BA and Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education and have been a member of NAEYC since 2001. When I am not at one of the centers I am out visiting programs seeking Accreditation through NAEYC, training early childhood educators or visiting family in Michigan.
