Villa Head Start Center
Site Administrator: April Pettis
What is your educational background?
I have a BS in Child Development and an MS in Educational Studies. I am currently in school to get my Ed.S in Educational Administration and Leadership.
What is your favorite thing about what you do?
I get to play every day! Seriously, there is nothing better than watching a child have an “ah-ha” moment, seeing that light bulb come on for them and that look on their face – it’s priceless.
What inspires you to do your job?
Knowing that every day is going to be different, every second counts and not only am I teaching the children something new every day, but they are teaching me something new every day.
What’s one thing you want parents to know about your site?
That children are learning all the time! Whether they are in greeting time, block area, snack time, outdoor play, they are always learning.
