My name is Courtney. I grew up in a big family with lots of aunts, uncles and cousins, so I enjoy family time and understand how important families are. I knew at a young age that I wanted to work with children, so I completed my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Moberly Area Community College in 2014. During my time at college I attended many different child care classes and was able to work with several child care centers and at a head-start program. All age groups are fun to work with, but my favorite is toddler through preschool age. I enjoying playing with the children and watching them make new discoveries as they play. Hands on learning was a favorite of mine when I was younger, so I love sharing hands on learning experiences with the children. I have 10 years of experience working with children through different jobs and an internship. I am very excited to be working at Cheerful Home Child Care & Early Learning Center, and I look forward to getting to know each and every child along with their families.
