SCHOOL DIRECTOR
Michelle Allen
ABOUT

Welcome to our school! My name is Michelle Allen and I am the center director. I have worked in early childhood education for over 15 years teaching in the public school system and military installations. Human development and education are my passion and being able to surround myself with individuals of all backgrounds give me a better understanding of the inner works of our community and how I can better serve them as a neighbor, friend, or leader. As a Director at Childcare Network, my goal is to create a school that is happy, safe, encouraging, supportive, and a continuous learning environment. I am excited to build new relationships with each of you, as well as get to know every single child in the building! I want you to feel like you are dropping your child off at a second home, and you can rely on us to ensure your child thrives in a loving, educational space. We provide an open door of communication in which families will feel a part of our school community, as we strive for excellence in everyday services.
