A Chat with Pooh Bears Child Development Center
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We have 24-hour childcare on Monday–Saturday. Fresh and hot meals prepared onsite. Before- and after-school transportation. We accept DES and other subsidies.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I've been an early childhood educator since 1997 and have found being a 24-hour provider has been a great help to many families, especially single-parent families. I enjoy and appreciate the joy and smiles I receive from helping others.
What do you love most about your job?
Childcare isn't a job; it's a calling from God to help others as you would want to be helped. Childcare is very rewarding, as you watch the children learn, grow, and mature.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
The best reaction I've gotten is when my first group of pre-k students graduated and went to public school and were ahead of the testing module. My students were well prepared, and the parents came back and thanked me tremendously.
