Our Owner/Director, Margie Charleston, brings over 25 years of experience to create a learning center that exceeds industry standards. Margie began her career as a PreK teacher and went on to serve many different roles within the childcare field. In 1995 she opened a registered family childcare business in Monroe Township, which she operated successfully for 5 years. During this time, she was appointed the Middlesex County representative of the NJ Family Childcare Association where she mentored providers and led meetings and trainings.
As an experienced Center Director ensuring high quality care and education, Margie has led several centers through the process of accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA). In addition to holding a Bachelor of Science in Human Services/Child Development she has earned a Child Development Associate (CDA), National Administrator Credential (NAC), Child Care Career Certificate and attends various industry conferences and workshops.
Her ultimate goal has always been to open a school where best practices in early care and partnerships between the school, families and the community could work together to inspire and celebrate the early childhood years.
