Daycare Center

Hi, my name is Ms Joanell.  I am originally from Harrisburg PA, and relocated to Jacksonville in 2017 with a mission to open a childcare facility that provides quality care and education in a loving, family-oriented environment.  

Early on I found my love for children when I worked as a preschool teacher for my church childcare center. 

It was in the University setting as an Admissions Coordinator that I found my adoration for education.  After receiving my Bachelors degree in Chemistry and Biology, I found my passion for helping others while working as a director of a home care agency. I am ready to share this love and passion with each of you and look forward to serving you and your families.

Hi, My name is Ms Tammy.  I have worked in the early childhood education field for over 30 years.  I have a Master of Arts in Education, Bachelor of Science Degree in Child Development, and an Associate of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education.  In my spare time I love hanging out with my family and being outdoors. The thing I love most about BCA is that they are my extended family which makes coming to work everyday enjoyable. I am excited to be apart of the BCA Family and look forward to meeting and working with each of you.
