The Children’s Center is truly Theresa’s happy place. The children, families, student staff, coworkers and at home feel of the center is the best part or working here! Theresa looks forward to sharing in the experience of educating and helping you guide your children through the early years of their development and to supporting the college campus staff as they too learn and grow while working at the center. 

The best thing about working at the Children’s Center is:  watching the children, families, student staff and even fulltime staff, grow and change over time.
