Hello! My name is Michelle Lester and I am the director of Childcare Express Center. I come to you with many years of childcare experience, more recently 8+ years of experience in a medically fragile childcare center where I served as a Registered Nurse, Assistant Clinical Director, and Clinical Director. I have served in both direct care and management capacities through the years and have learned many valuable lessons in providing the most effective and efficient childcare.
I graduated from Waynesburg University in May 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and earned my Registered Nurse credentials in June 2012. As a registered nurse, I ensure the best possible care for your child with over 8 years of pediatric nurse experience. I have cared for many children with conditions ranging from common respiratory issues to rare, genetic and/or chromosomal diagnoses. Be comforted in knowing that I hold certifications in BLS/CPR/First Aid, as well as in Pediatric Advance Life Support. Aside from my professional background, I was raised in a large family and began babysitting at the age of 14 and now as the mother of seven children, I assure you that I have always had a heart for children. I feel strongly about the health and well-being of each child that I care for as well as incorporating fun and creativity into their individualized care.
In the capacity of a director, I bring many organizational skills to Childcare Express Center. I feel that being transparent as a director will ensure that your child is receiving the best care possible by having open communication and dialogue daily. I am also committed to helping others succeed in the workplace and encourage my staff to provide exemplary care to each child that walks through our doors. Additionally, I have worked closely with Department of Human Services to ensure that our center complies with all standard regulations.
At Childcare Express Center, I want you to really grasp who I am as a person and understand that your child will be in great hands during their time here. Your child will be cared for as if he/she were family and will be sad to leave when you arrive. My staff and I believe in enhancing the childcare experience by engaging with each child directly and instilling new ways to have fun and be creative! If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to meeting and positively impacting your child! Thank you!
