Description: Golden Valley Day Care is a not for profit, tax exempt childcare center that was opened in 1973 in the Methodist Church. At that time the licensing capacity was only 16 children. In 1976, the day care combined with Betty Long's Family Day Care and became licensed for 45 children. As the day care grew, it eventually moved to North 2nd Street. Fortunately they continued to grow and decided it was time to build. With the help of the Neighborhood Assistance Program and the donation of a piece of land; Golden Valley Day Care was able to design and build their very own building and be licensed to accept up to155 children.
Through the 30+ years of being in business; the day care has only had 2 Executive Directors. Betty Long became the Director when her family day care joined with the Methodist Church. Betty continually made it bigger and better until she retired in April of 2006. Betty made an impact on numerous children and their families. Through her many years she had the opportunity to touch many generations of the same family.
In 2006, Karlee Bohannan accepted the position of Executive Director. She was born and raised in Clinton where she graduated from Clinton High School in 2002. Karlee has received her Associate Degree from State Fair Community College and has since then taken several additional college classes and trainings. She worked at the day care for 2 years as a classroom teacher while going to school along with teaching Sunday School and helping with Vacation Bible School in the past.
Karlee and her husband, Troy, reside in the country with their two daughters. She enjoys spending time with her family as much as possible. Karlee loves the outdoors and enjoys deer hunting and fishing. Her and her daughters love to go shopping together as well.
