Childcare Network #173's Full Profile


About our Child Care & Preschool Center in Arlington My name is Karen Buchanan and I am the Director of our school here in Arlington, Texas. I have been in the child care profession for over 32 years. My credentials include a National Administrator Credential and a non-expiring Directors License. I have been the director at this location since March of 2011 and am so proud of the fact that we have a lot of long term teachers at our school who have chosen the child care field as their profession. With all of their combined experience, as well as some new teaching staff, I know that our students are in great hands! We use the HighReach Learning Curriculum in all of our classrooms, which focuses on developmentally and age-appropriate activities and materials. This year we have started our Kindergarten Prep Academy class, to teach students the skills they will need as they enter Kindergarten next fall. I invite you to come in and take a tour of our school. You can set up a specific appointment to tour, or just drop in at your convenience. I can sit down with you and find out what your specific expectations are for your children. I hope that you choose Childcare Network  for your child’s educational and child care needs and look forward to meeting you soon. See you soon! Karen Buchanan
