My name is Melissa Swafford and I am the Director at A Universal Learning Center. I have been here since August 2014. I moved from Bradenton in June of 2014 and left my previous center of 10 years to join this amazing center. I have been working in childcare since 2003. I am currently going to school to finish my AS in Early Childhood Education as SCF.
I have been married for 16 years and have 3 wonderful children ages 12, 14 and 15. My children are very active in sports which include cheerleading, dance, football and baseball.
I enjoy the many aspects of working in a childcare center. I have the privilege to help educate young minds, inspire teachers and help and encourage parents. My children are grown and say they don’t need me as much anymore so I get to come to work every day and have 80 children to play with. There is nothing better than that.
