On this session of Business Highlight we discuss: What you MUST know when picking out a childhood development program for your child and how this is different than “daycare”.
All three of my children grew up with “Ms. Anna” (Armenta), and I wouldn’t have it any other way! When our eldest started with Ms. Anna, she was operating out of her home. But her success grew, and by the time my youngest graduated from Pre-K, Armenta’s was in a big, beautiful facility. While the location may have changed, the love, care, and attention my children received never changed! How did Ms. Anna clone herself? How was she able to instill the same passion, work ethic, and principles to her staff? I don’t know, but I think all of us have seen most businesses lose their soul, personality, and spirit once they begin to grow. But this has not happened at Armenta’s. Somehow, the same guiding principles that started as a small seed have continued and sustained growth that can be seen today.
While we may be surprised that Ms. Anna was able to accomplish this feat where many others have failed, she is not shy about telling you her “secret.” Ms. Anna will be the first to tell you that the source of everything she has comes from God. Her faith, coupled with a strong family, has allowed personal growth beyond anything she envisioned for herself. She sees Armenta’s as a way to demonstrate her faith and “to love each other” as we are instructed. In many cases, these are just words, but at Armenta’s, you can see this principle in action on a daily basis.
On a personal note, some people come into our lives who radiate joy and inner peace. Ms. Anna is one of those (rare) people. And now that my youngest has moved on to kindergarten, I will really miss hearing what she told me every day as I dropped her off at school: “Have a blessed day, Mijo.”
