“Thank you for choosing Farmville, and I promise you won’t regret it,” he said.
Owner Lynda Kachman said she was excited to open the center in the city.
“We are grateful to be in Farmville,” she said. “I love children and have worked with children for a long time. Being able to bring that here to our community is a blessing. “
Room manager Lori Drake said many parents in the city are in need of child care and child care and the business is a great addition.
“We are really excited that they are here and we are delighted to be part of their grand opening and to let it be known that we have a new business in our business community and a new daycare here in Farmville,” she said.
Teachers are trained and have graduated from early childhood up to age four and certified by the North Carolina Institute of Early Childhood.
The facility operates on non-standard schedules and offers full and part-time child care, preschool and preschool services as well as programs for school-aged children.
