About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Swansboro
My name is Kearsley Hinely, and I am the Director of this amazing school in Swansboro, NC! I have spent over 11 years in the early childcare field, between classrooms and administrative roles. In addition, I have received my Master’s Degree in Early Childcare Education. Since I was a child, I have always wanted to be a teacher. I would make my brothers play school with me, and I would “teach” them! I love to use my knowledge, experience, and educational drive to create a caring and nurturing experience for you and your family.
As a Director at Childcare Network #79, it is my mission to make sure that the time your child spends with us is in a safe, happy learning environment. I think the most important quality that I like to see emulated in our employees and children is kindness: kindness beginning with every staff member to each family enrolled into our center.
We have a fantastic curriculum that is age appropriate for each age range. We offer programs for children starting from 6 weeks through 12 years of age. Our Bright Baby classroom uses a research-based curriculum, which uses everyday experiences to teach our infants language acquisition, sensory awareness, large and small motor skills, visual tracking, self-help, and much more. Our other curriculum components provide a unique balance of standards-based on classroom support materials. Family connection components are easy to understand, and our parents look forward to our bi-annual Parent Conferences to communicate their child's continued growth and development!
We strive to work closely with our parents through various means of communication such as newsletters, e-mail, and our parent advisory board. We know that you are entrusting us with your most valuable possession and we take every effort to make that transition as easy as possible. We encourage parents to take advantage of our open-door policy and join us in the classroom.
We welcome you to tour our facility. Call us today and plan a time to come visit! You will find that we have an excellent program and the best team in the area. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
