Stefani has been working in the early child care industry since 1986. She started as an assistant teacher in a small privately owned child care center in San Antonio, Texas. While working at the center, she studied early childhood development at San Antonio College. Upon completion of the two year program, Stefani received her CDA (Child Development Associate) which is a National credential granted by the National Child Care Association. Through her training and hands on work, Stefani has learned the best ways to nurture children's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth in a child development framework.
After receiving her credential, Stefani worked for another local child care center as a lead teacher in the 2-3 year old class.
Eventually, after rotating through all the age groups, Stefani was recognized as an asset to the child care industry and was hired as an Assistant Director of a nationally owned learning center, where she was eventually earned her Director’s Credential and was promoted to full director and given her own center to manage.
Since working as both a teacher and in management, Stefani has attended the University of the Incarnate Word where she studied a combination of education and business management.
Steve has been working as a certified public accountant and an attorney since 1993 and 1997 respectively, mostly in his own firm. Prior to college and law school, Steve spent 5 years as both enlisted and as an officer, via Officer Candidate School, in the U.S Army Infantry.
Steve and Stefani discussed starting their own high quality child care center for many years before finally making it a reality in 2007 with their first school in the San Antonio Stone Oak area. They now own and operate 3 schools in and around San Antonio.
Steve and Stefani have been married since 1991 and have four wonderful children with ages ranging from college to elementary school.
