What Parents are saying about Pooh Corner...
"I have 2 children, currently ages 6 and 3. Both were enrolled in Pooh Corner from the time they were infants. I couldn't imagine having them anywhere else. Even as infants, I was never worried about leaving them because I knew they were well cared for. As they have grown through the years, not only have they learned a lot (my 6 year old was more than prepared for Kindergarten!) but they have always been loved there as well. The teachers and staff are ALL wonderful, caring and nurturing. Pooh Corner is their second home!" - C. Palmgren
The most valuable asset of any child care center is its staff -- AND OURS IS THE BEST!! -- We're proud to provide information about the staff at Pooh Corner Child Care Center for you to see . . .
Darlene Holmes – Director
I’ve been with Pooh Corner Center since August 1986.  After high school I attended Greensboro College where I majored in Special Education.  More recently, I went to John Tyler Community College and received an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I also earned the "Excellence in Early Childhood Education” award while there.  I have actually been at Pooh Corner long enough now to have a "second generation” coming through, which is really very special to me. I even have pictures to share with these kids to let them know what their parents looked like when they were little!  I have four children of my own who "grew up” here also.  I have six granddaughters and five grandsons.  I will be celebrating my 38th wedding anniversary in March.
Sharon Swingle – Program Director
I am the Program Director and Pre-Kindergarten teacher.  I also supervise the School Age Program in the afternoons.  I came to Pooh Corner in 1989 after graduating from Mary Washington College with a B.A. in Psychology.  I left Pooh Corner in 1995 to further my education, receiving a Masters of Teaching Degree from V.C.U.  I came back to Pooh Corner in 1998.  I am also active in my church’s children’s program.  I currently have a son, Hayden, enrolled in the School Age Program here at Pooh Corner.  It is a great joy for me to see how much he learns on a daily basis!  I also enjoy seeing adult "Pooh Corner Graduates” bringing their children back to our center.  That in itself speaks very highly of our program, staff and center as a whole.

Sabrina Goodman – Bumble Bee Teacher
I have been employed at Pooh Corner since June 2009.  I am married with 3 daughters.   I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Norfolk State University.  I am very active in my church and Girl Scouts.  I am the older three year old teacher.  I have over 10 years of child care experience at another center.  I have enjoyed working here and getting to know the staff and families of  Pooh Corner.2

And MANY other wonderful Staff Members who play an important role in our day to day activities!
