Hello. My name is Erica Dorsey. I am the owner of this wonderful center and actively participate in the day-to-day operations of our classrooms. I am a compassionate and imaginative mother of three great children. I am dedicated to safety and learning and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to assist in shaping young children into healthy and happy people. I am organized, detailed and patient. I am focused on early speech and good behavior. I believe these two skills are critical for academic and social success. I am sensitive to each child's individual needs and strive to provide security and opportunity for children to thrive. I have two children with disabilities which have allowed me to obtain many hours of observation with speech, occupational and physical therapy. As a former nationally certified EMT and volunteer for the local rescue squad, I am well-equipped to manage almost any emergency situation. Safety is always my number one priority! I ensure your children are cared for the way I care for my own. I will provide a cozy spot for naps and always support our team of teachers so they can offer a HUGE variety of fun activities to make every day a growing and learning adventure!
Hello. My name is Callie Dean and I am the Assistant Director for our lovely center. I co-founded Tots back in 2014 with my sister Erica, and have made it my commitment to offer the finest preschool environment possible. I have two young boys who attend here and have been working in childcare for over 10 years. You can often find me in one of our classrooms coaching, supervising and working alongside our fabulous teachers. My experience is focused on safe environments for young infants, emergency management, and best practices. I advocate for parent/teacher interactions and facilitate open communication in all my work. I lead by example and service to others is my style. I am detailed oriented, motivated and organized and cleanliness is a core trait found in my footpath. I want your children to feel safe and loved here at Tots N Toyland and receive every resource available to us. Nutrition and fair behavioral guidance is one of many additional areas of expertise I offer. I will always wear a smile and be approachable for you. Even when things get tough, I am the loving and caring support system you and your children can count on!
