Infant/Toddler Teacher Laura:

I like working at UCC because of the children and the families. It is very rewarding to be a part of a child’s life, even if it is for a brief time. I consider it a blessing to be able to see the milestones that children reach and be able to share that with their families. My hope is that I can make a difference in a child’s life or their family’s life. If we as teachers can give a child a good start and a solid foundation to build upon, they will have the rewards and successes of that for the rest of their lives.

Creating a nurturing and enriching environment in order for our community’s children to thrive.
