Meet Our Director, Karen Heyne
Hello, my name is Karen Heyne, and I am the Director of Valley Child Care & Learning Centers in Anthem. I began my early childhood education career when I was hired at the age of 13 for my first after-school job at a child care facility. I have been committed to early childhood education ever since!
For 14 years, I successfully ran and operated my own licensed home-based child care facility and preschool. I joined the VCCLC Anthem team in 2007 as a teacher’s aide, and have been growing with the company ever since. Our school staff takes the responsibility of nurturing and educating your little ones seriously. We take great pride in the smiles we see on the faces of our students every day.
On a personal note, I love the outdoors and Arizona both in the summer and winter! Spending time with my husband and our three boys camping and fishing in this beautiful state is one of my greatest pleasures. Family is very important to me, and I carry that into my position of Director.
I look forward to meeting you and your children and invite you to come see us!
