Small Wonders Child Development Center is dedicated to providing an environment where children can learn and grow in a safe and nurturing space. As a professional with a Bachelors Degree in Special Education, and who is in the final semester of a Masters in Christian Counseling, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team. I believe that every child deserves a quality education, and that begins at an early age. By partnering with families, we create a warm and welcoming environment that supports learning and growth at every stage. Most importantly, I am a proud Mimi to two wild boys, which has given me a unique perspective on the needs of children with creative personalities.

Rachel Phillips

I have been a part of Small Wonders Child Development Center for over 11 years, starting as a teacher and working my way up to Assistant Director. I am dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for all the children in our care. As a foster parent myself, I understand the needs of children and how to meet them in an educative and loving way. 

Ashley Bozeman

Education Coordinator

Hi! My name is Ashley, and I am thrilled to introduce you to Small Wonders Child Development Center. As a childcare professional with more than 15 years of experience, I have seen firsthand the incredible benefits of a high-quality early childhood education. I am passionate about creating engaging and diverse learning experiences for children, including messy art, sensory play, and music-based learning. As a teacher, I strongly believe in being an active participant in the classroom and continually learning alongside my students. Above all, I am a proud mother of two rambunctious boys, and I understand how vital it is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children to grow and thrive.

Bri Burrow

Administrative Assistant

 Hi, I'm Bri! I do a little bit of everything here at Small Wonders. Sometimes you can find me at the front and chatting with parents, sometimes I am in a classroom loving on kiddos! As an active member of my church home and a lover of movies and games, I bring a playful and nurturing spirit to my work with children. The best part of my job is seeing each child's unique personality and skills blossom under our care.
