Proud Owner/Founder / Childcare Practitioner/ Director/ Lead Teacher /Family Childcare Business Consultant/ Author/ Curriculum Developer
Hello my name is Rashawn. Everyone calls me Ms. Shawn....
I am a wife and mother to five young adults. Two are my birth children, stepmother of three and step- Nawnie to a growing number of grandchildren.
In 2001 I became a Stay- At - Home - Mom after my daughter was born. Although I was very busy with two young children to care for, I started missing the things I enjoyed most about working. I thought about how much I loved to work with children. I loved teaching and organizing activities for my own children. I looked around our house and noticed how I decorated the walls with learning posters and had little learning centers set up for them. So in January of 2002, I opened as Rashawn's Daycare. I've been at it over myself since.
Parents find that I always carry a positive attitude and healthy self - esteem. I believe in keeping open, honest, and confidential communications with each parent. I understand that children need appropriate structure, safety, and a clean environment with lots of learning tools. I'm very energetic and highly motivated in assuring that your children will receive just that. I'm always working to make every child feel special. I love to see the success in those around me. I'm very supportive of each family. I love to make people smile so I will crack a joke here and there. I love to travel! I have coined myself as a World Explorer!
I am very serious about providing an environment that fosters healthy development of each child. My growing student loan debt can prove how true my passion is. I'm constantly furthering my education to ensure that my knowledge and program evolve with the ever changing advancements within this field of education and business.
One other thing you should know about me. When you call, you will be greeted by a soft voice. I was blessed with a voice that never matured past 3 years old. So I don't want you to be alarmed believing that we would allow a small child to answer the phone. It's just me!
