My journey with Children’s Enchanted Center began 15 years ago with a dream of my daughter’s to run a safe, vibrant and joyful daycare. With planning beginning in 1999 and completion in 2001 we have been going strong ever since. The wonder of youth and how children grow continues to amaze me and my staff. The success of the Center is far beyond my expectations and it is to you, the parents and your children I express gratitude.
