Four years ago, The Way PDO and Preschool opened its door to our first students.
It was much smaller back then, with just a few kids, but it started to grow quickly, and now we have over 70 students and ten teachers.
Let's learn more about this program from the director herself.
She is a wife, a mother to her 17-year-old son, and the founder of The Way PDO and Preschool.
Mrs. Glass is an original member of The Way Church and a previous children's minister. You can find her in the office or in a classroom.
She is an educator, the principal, the one that pays the bills, and a sounding board for every teacher and parent concern.
You can see her passion and dedication toward God, her church, and her PDO kids.
Here is the text from our interview:
It was really a need of a friend and some mothers in the church. They were looking for places for their children, and the other options either did fit or were full. The Way Church had just moved into this new building, and we had the room to dream.
As far as working in childcare, I have learned there is not a one size fits all program, and growing pains in a business are normal. Personally, my love of God has grown through serving these children and their parents."
I am so proud of our four years. We are always growing, adding classrooms and age groups; we now take infants to 4 years old. We just started our own curriculum; we are focusing on getting our kids ready for school. I would like to continue to grow and one day have our own PDO building. I would love to get more parents and families involved with our church, and I would like to pour more into our staff for everything they do.
Our hours and that we are a learning program are key factors. It is a privilege every time a parent chooses to enroll their children. That they choose us to help guide their children in knowledge and towards God is a responsibility that I never take lightly.
The Way PDO and Preschool was created to fulfill a need in the Livingston parish community. The parents, students, and teachers are the reason the doors open each day. Congratulations to The Way Church PDO and Preschool on four years and many more to come.
