Miranda Wright - Director, Little Angel Day School
Choosing a childcare facility is not a task parents take lightly. You are juggling a job or two, attending classes to further your education or other responsibilities that require you to find quality childcare. We are here to take that weight off of your shoulders. Our job is to make you feel confident when you drop your child off at our school. The emotional, social, and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development and the adult they will become. That is why understanding the need to invest in very young children is important to maximize their future wellbeing.
For a childcare provider to be successful they must make the child’s learning and development the core focus. Secondly, they need to build positive and respectful relationships with the families. It is so true that it takes a village to raise a child! From the caregivers to the administrators to the state licensing agency, everyone involved in a day care’s operation helps shape a child’s experience. No job is deemed less important in our facility because of this concept.
For me, childcare is not a side job or a second thought. I went into this business knowing my life would be dedicated to the children and the people supporting them. Hearing the voices of the children and seeing their faces lighting up with excitement each time they learn something new brings boundless joy to me.
Childcare professionals make the children’s day worthwhile. We are not simply babysitters, but teachers and providers. We are the ones that kiss the “boo-boos” and bandage the scissor wounds. We sprinkle glitter on the fishy pictures and hand out healthy food. It is our responsibility to put smiles on these children’s faces every day, and that is huge!

Although I’m not their mother
I care for them each day,
I cuddle, sing and read to them
And watch as they play.
I see each new accomplishment,
I help them grow and learn.
I understand their language,
I listen with concern.
They come to me for comfort,
And I kiss away their tears.
They proudly show their work to me,
I give the loudest cheers!
No, I’m not their mother,
But my role is just as strong.
I nurture them and keep them safe,
Though maybe not for long.
I know someday the time will come,
When we will have to part.
But I know each child I cared for,
Is forever in my heart.
