Our Philosophy

Since 90% of your child’s brain develops before the age of five, a proper early education is critical.


Memories & Milestones Academy is dedicated to providing exceptional education and quality child care to all of our children. It is our philosophy to focus on the needs of the individual child by providing a stimulating atmosphere for learning, along with a secure loving environment.


Children respond best by being supported and allowed to flourish in a friendly, calm and safe environment. It is our privilege to be able to create a positive learning experience for your children and we are passionate about education and providing our children with the tools to be successful in life.

Meet the Owner

Chantel’s passion for children and child care stems from her own upbringing, as she spent her teenage years working multiple babysitting jobs every weekend! Growing up, she always said to her mom, “When I get older, I want to have 100 kids and live right next door to you!”


Years later, and that’s exactly what happened!


Holding a Business Management Degree with a Child Care Emphasis, she spent years doing in-home child care, followed by years in a state of the art child care services and years in corporate America before landing here at Memories & Milestones Academy!


Her time in corporate America showed her that the quality of care that was available wasn’t good enough, following a number of unplanned days due to issues with childcare services. It was this that finally inspired her to create her own Academy.


Reliable, quality care that is consistent, in a professional, welcoming environment was needed, and Chantel’s passion and experience have guided her to be able to meet your childcare needs.
