Meet Our Founder

As a business owner and a mom of two beautiful daughters I was in a need of child care. As I was touring all the local daycares to find a suitable place for them, none of the childcare centers came close to what I wanted for my daughters, and it was out of this need that Elite Daycare was established.

My vision was to create an environment where children can flourish not only academically, but also physically, emotionally and socially. I believe that each child learns in a different way, which is why I want to introduce learning through doing, be it through art, music, dance, yoga, cooking and even through play. Most of all, I wanted a place where children and their parents feel a part of family. Where parents are comfortable and confident that their children are being taken care off in a safe and nurturing environment.

I also believe that giving our children home cooked organic and nutritious meals are a big part in their developmental process. Therefore, we have a great chef and a nutritionist on staff that prepares daily meals and snacks for our children.

Although having a different career background, I had limited knowledge of the childcare industry. I was introduced to so many great individuals that became great resources to me.

I can now say that I have a great balance between work and my children. As Elite Daycare grows and expands It will also give me a tremendous ability to be able to give back to the communities that have played a great deal in helping me build my business.
