  • Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education

Hello and Welcome! We are a licensed childcare facility located in Destin Florida. My name is Ronnie Burse and I am the center Director. I am 33 years old, and I have been around and participated in early childhood education my entire life. My mother was the Director of a childcare center in Hopkinsville Kentucky, I myself began working there and worked there until I got married and moved to Barksdale AFB. I have worked in 3 Child Development Centers as the assistant teacher then making my way to lead teacher and have also previously held the position of Director. Not only have I worked in the childcare setting, but I also have worked as a preschool teacher, an elementary teacher, and a high school teacher. My ultimate love has always been the childcare setting as I am passionate about watching children learn and grow in their most critical development stages. My husband is active duty in the Air Force. We have been married 14 years and together we have two sons. I can't wait to take the time to get to know each and every one of you. Our goal is to create a warm, loving, and educational environment for our children while meeting our parent’s needs. We strive to foster positive relationships with the children and families in our school. We provide a safe environment for kids to learn and have fun, and parents can have peace of mind while they are at work. Schedule a tour today, we'd love to show you all of the amazing things we have to offer!
