Principal Officer

Mrs. Deborah Lynne Mann

BIO

I have been in the field of Early Childhood since 1984. I have a Bachelors of Arts (BA) degree in Child and Family studies. I am working towards my Masters of Arts (MA) degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Besides being a Director, I have worked in the classroom for over thirty years. I have been a Youth Coordinator. I am also the Community Service Leader in my church and I oversee the distribution of food from our food pantry at the church and Emmanuel Family and Child Development Center. I am also on the Round Table Committee for the Summer Food Service Program as well as I serve on the board of United Service Community Action Agency.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"My name is Deborah Mann, Director of an Early Childhood Center. My philosophy of education is shaped by my experiences as Teacher, a Director and by my college coursework. I have been in the field of Early Childhood since 1984. I have a Bachelor's of Arts (BA) degree in Child and Family studies. I am working towards my Master's of Arts (MA) degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I was born and raised in this community and believe that children deserve the best opportunity available in order to succeed. My philosophy of education is built on the belief that the purpose of education is for each individual to be a life long learner. I believe that experiences in the classroom should be a learning opportunity. Education should produce individuals who are creative and effective communicators, contributors to a democratic society, and critical thinkers who are able to make decisions based on analyzing information and data. Emmanuel Family and Child Development Center is unique because we believe that you must educate the family before you can truly educate the child. We believe that providing parents with home visits helps the family and our program staff work together to meet the child's need. We work closely with our families through parent meetings to educate them on current child development issues. Were also unique because we offer non-traditional work hours to our families. Finally were unique because we not only provide pick up and delivery service to the children we serve, but we will take our families to their jobs, schools or appointments."
