Owning her own daycare center has been a dream Alissa Jackson has had since she was 17 years old.
"I just love working with children," she said.
Jackson runs the daycare out of her home, which includes a fenced-in backyard serving as an outdoor play area. Her staff is licensed by the state and all are certified in CPR and first aid. They use development-appropriate curriculum catering to each child's age.
Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with a "Date Night" program available from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturdays. Jackson offers programs for full- and half-days, before- and after-school and summer.
