Words from our staff

Having a small center, all members of our staff are familiar with each child, and their specific needs.


"I am the teacher of the 2 1/2-3's. I have been working with children for almost 20 years. Children are a passion of mine and I enjoy being able to work with them everyday. Coming to work for me, is not a job, rather a pleasure. Each and every child brightens my day in his own little way. The look on a child's face when they learn something new is priceless! When I'm not at work, I enjoy reading, shopping and spending time with my family. I've been with PHLC for 6 years here and have worked at their other location in the past for 3 years. I consider PHLC to be a 2nd home to me."


"I have worked in child care for almost 30 years and have been with PHLC for almost half. I have many different responsibilities here at the center. I work with all of the children at some point in the week, infant through school age. I enjoy doing art projects and letting the children explore their inner artist!"


"I work in the toddler room and have been in child care for a few years. Before starting in child care, I worked in Harford County Public Schools for seven years. I enjoy working with children, watching them grow, and giving them all my love."


"I am the 3.5 and 4 year old teacher. I have been in child care for over 20 years and at PHLC for over 10 years. Perry Hall Learning Center stands out because it is nurturing and has a home-like feel to it. When most of the child care field seems to be focused on packing children in for profit, I'm proud to be a part of a more family oriented Center. At PHLC, we realize that all day, every day, should be about our children. On every level from infant to elementary, we focus on our children's needs."


"I am Miss Carol to the children. Between babysitting, nannying, raising my own children and working here at PHLC, I've been teaching and taking care of children for over 40 years. I've been here at the Center for over 15 years and have taken care of the infants, toddlers and 2 year olds. I'm a teacher at heart. It's who I am and there's nothing else I'd rather do"
