Making a Difference

I am the mother of four adult children and one very adorable bull dog. My education and training focuses in the field of education and creative childcare. I also continue to study the psychology of woman as well as marriage and family. I have had the joy of working with children and their parents for over 39 years and have presented my parenting thoughts in the classroom as well as on TV, radio and in print.

"Everyone is kind, loving, and still teach the kids manners and boundaries. I love that they work with me to ensure my child gets the support and learning through this important stage of life."

The caring staff at Our Children’s Place Academy will prepare our students to enter their future by:

Enhancing character traits such as compassion, empathy, kindness, and understanding of other's uniqueness. 


Developing learning skills and techniques that will help them reach their full academic potential.

Developing communication skills that will last a lifetime.


Building a foundation for life and learning, surrounded by teachers who truly care for their growth, both personally and academically. 


"Teacher Janet had all the children stop and welcome
my son when we arrived. He happily joined in the play. 
And we were able to get all our errands done."

Thank you Teacher Janet!

Our Children’s Place Academy

We are reminded every day that the mind of a child is full of potential and eagerness to learn. We have also learned never to under estimate their ability. We love teaching children through creative hands-on activities that allow them to learn through play.


We look forward to sharing our day with your child,
laughing and learning together! 

Please contact Our Children’s Place Academy for Tuition information, as well as availability

"The staff at OCP are dedicated to the success of the children attending and I would even say that this experience has left me to believe that it is by far one of the best preschool and Pre K schools in all surrounding areas."
