We love our teachers!
Sharlot opened Teddy's Place in 1984 as a family child care center for eight children. In 1991 she expanded to include a full preschool education curriculum with space for up to 96 children.
Our teachers are dedicated!
Teddy's has attracted and maintained creative, imaginative and dedicated personnel with the help of T.E.A.C.H. Scholarships. Some teachers have been with Teddy's Place, Inc. since it became a group center in 1991.
