“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you just may be the world” That person is YOUR child!
It was in 2005 that I decided to open my first childcare facility in Port Charlotte, Educare Learning Center. This decision was based on more than four years of research and founded on the idea that it is possible to run a high quality facility that brings together the best childcare services with research-based educational programs while modeling the most up-to-date technology to ensure the safety and security of every child.
In early 2010, EduCare expanded with the addition of EduCare Academy in Bonita Springs.
I am proud of the reputation for excellence that EduCare has earned and am looking forward to even greater achievements in the years to come.
