Profile Children's Center

Dana has been working in early childhood education since 2008. She is an Alumni of CSU Chico where she earned her BA in Child Development in 2011 and her MA in Education in 2013. She also became fully certified as a trainer by the Program for Infant Toddler Care in 2020. She has worked in various settings in the field which has helped shape and broaden her perspective about early childhood education and child care. Dana began working at the Children’s Center in 2014, taking a break to move to Oregon for a short while, then returning in 2016 and has been here since. Dana finds great joy in providing high quality early childhood education to the children of those that are seeking a degree, and also in coaching college students in the field of early childhood education.

The best thing about working at the Children’s Center is:  it is a family-oriented environment where all are supported in their learning and growth.
