About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Asheville
My name is Tomara Tomes, and I am the Director at Childcare Network #179! have an Associates degree in Childhood Development, certification in Special education and Early Childhood Education, and Effective Teacher Training. I enjoy working with all age groups however I do have a soft spot for the infants.
As a director at Childcare Network #179, it is my mission to be the leader of a school filled with the best qualified teachers to educate and expand the opportunities for our children, that our families feel confident in their decision choosing Childcare Network, and that their children are safe and being provided for while in our care.
My goal is to create the best learning environment possible! We will provide the very best care and set the educational foundation that all children can build upon. Education is my passion, in addition to being a positive influence to my school and community.
Our High Reach Learning curriculum allows us to enhance the learning experiences to make learning fun! Our curriculum and daily activities ensure that we are meeting the educational and developmental goals of each child. Our focused literacy skills include language development, print awareness, writing skills, and fostering a love of reading and learning during the most critical period of brain development. Research shows that children arriving to Kindergarten with developed early literacy skills are more likely to become successful students.
The Young Achievers (school age children) enjoy a wide variety of activities and clubs during the school year as well as during the summer. Our Summer Adventure Camp program consists of many fantastic and engaging field trips such as visits to local museums and fun-filled days in the park. We also offer a summer reading program which helps keep the minds of our Young Achievers active.
We look forward to you stopping by and touring our school in Asheville, NC. Our door is always open!
