About the Provider

Description: Chloris Faulkner purchased land in June 2007 in hopes that one day she could open a childcare center where families can access educational childcare that prepares children for success in school and life.

“After several years of planning, meetings, and set-backs, construction finally began in December 2009,” said Faulkner. The Faulkners held a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony on July 17, 2010 and began accepting children later that month.

The childcare center, located at 801 St. John Street in Monroe, LA, currently has seven employees. The childcare center operates from 6am to 12 noon Monday through Saturday with open enrollment.

“The staff at the LSBDC at University of Louisiana Monroe assisted me with a business plan to assess the feasibility of the day care facility, “ said Faulkner. “They also put me in contact with a non-traditional lender, Enterprise Corporation of the Delta, who helped finance the construction.”
