Administrators and Board of Directors
The Chapel Hill Day Care Center is led by an experienced, qualified staff and an engaged Board of Directors.
Pam has been the director of CHDCC since May 1999, and she has been an early childhood program director since 1992. She started out as a high school English teacher, but quickly realized that many of the essential skills children need to succeed in school and to be happy in life are learned before children begin their formal education. So she went back to college and got a Masters of Education in Child Development and Family Studies.
Her goal as the director is to help ensure that the children placed in CHDCC's care feel safe, secure and challenged by caring adults who treat them with respect and understand how children learn in these formative years.
Kate’s first job was working with three year olds. She always knew she wanted to work with children, and has been in the early childhood education field for 41 years. The most satisfying part of her job is watching children grow intellectually and emotionally and watching them define their authentic selves.
She is a board member of the North Carolina Early Childhood Association (NCECA), which advocates for improvement of the working environment for early childhood professionals. NCECA is a strong voice for high quality programs for young children.
Program Assistant & Enrichment Coordinator
Jordan began working at CHDCC part-time in January 1998, while in college. She began working in a classroom with two outstanding teachers who taught her lots about teaching young children. Growing up in a family of teachers it almost comes naturally to her - one could say it's in her genes.
She is kind, conscientious and a go-getter. She loves watching children grow and become who they will be. She recently received her Master's in Early Childhood Intervention and Family Support from UNC-Chapel Hill. One of her favoritve past times is spending time with her husband and their dog.
