About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Jacksonville
My name is Heather Gose, and I am the Director of Childcare Network #81 in Jacksonville, NC! I have spent over 34 years working in the early childcare field, 10 of those years with Early Head Start! During that time, I completed my Master’s Degree through the University of Colorado with an Early Childhood Special Education license.
As a Director at Childcare Network #81, my goal is to create a school that is happy, safe, encouraging, supportive, and a continuous learning environment. I am excited to build new relationships with each of you, as well as get to know every single child in the building! I want you to feel like you are dropping your child off at a second home, and you can rely on us to ensure your child thrives in a loving, educational space. As the working parents best friend, we want to make sure our families are supported and experience firsthand the love we feel for our students. You are your child’s best advocate, teacher, and support system!
Childcare Network is a family friendly center and provides working families with quality childcare. We use the High Reach curriculum to help mold your children's minds and bring adventure to their hearts. The use of our structured High Reach Learning curriculum enhances the learning experiences to make the creation of your child's educational foundation engaging and 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. Our Pre-Kindergarten Prep Academy and our Kindergarten Prep Academy, (our pre-k program for children ages 3 to 5 years of age) are provided a print-rich environment to prepare them for elementary reading.
I would love to meet you and show all the wonderful activities that are occurring within our facility so come by or call to set up a time to come by. We hope to see you soon!!
