About our Child Care & Preschool Center in East Ridge
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 #152.
My name is Nikki McCarthy and I have worked in Childcare for 9 ½ years, I have been continuing my education to obtain my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. In addition, I have received certificates in Early Childhood Program Administration, School Age and Youth Care, ECCE Basics, and Infant/Toddler Childcare Specialist credentials. I have also been the assistant director for almost 4 years which has been the best experience!
I have lived in the Chattanooga area for 11 years and love the feeling of unity and closeness it brings.
I have three children and all three have attended Childcare Network. My oldest, Aiden, attended Childcare Network all the way through Pre-K. Personally I have had an excellent experience with all of my children. They love /loved their teachers and are genuinely treated like family by all. I could not ask for a better place for my children to learn and grow!
As a director at Childcare Network #152, it will be my mission to foster a safe haven and positive learning environment for our children and families. I want our school to continually cultivate fresh ideas, building on communication and teamwork.
I look forward to spreading joy every day at Childcare Network #152. 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!
