About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Southport

I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. I am so excited to be a part of the Childcare Network family! I am looking forward to a very productive and exciting year at #85. My name is Amanda McLean and I have a Bachelors degree in Childhood Education. I have worked in all classrooms prior to becoming a director and have to say the toddler room was my favorite. I have lived in Brunswick County since I was in middle school. I love working in Southport, it is a beautiful town and I love being near the water. I have three children; Emily is 13, Jacob 12 and Stevie is 1 year old. All of my children have attended a child development program. Stevie is currently enrolled in our Smart Steps Toddler Academy and loving it! As a director at Childcare Network #85, it will be my mission to make sure that the time your child spends with us is safe and happy while getting the best early childhood education. I first knew I wanted to work with children when I was in the 5th grade. The pre-school program at my school would welcome the 5th graders to be teachers helpers. I had such an amazing time helping the other children that I informed my Mom I wanted to be a teacher! I want parents to know that one of my primary goals for the children at Childcare Network #85 will be to foster an environment where each child can challenge themselves and achieve. I want them to learn that it’s safe to try anything, that it’s ok if they fail, and that there is always an opportunity to try again. I look forward to spreading joy every day at #85. Whether it be happy students or happy staff, I look forward to seeing a slew of smiles walk through the front door each and every morning; hearts filled with the desire to be here, to be successful, and to have pride in what they are accomplishing. Please do not wait for formal conferences to discuss any concerns you have with me. My door is always open!
