December 17, 2012 · by pcriadmin · Uncategorized

Recently, PCRI talked with Shakish Harrison of Today’s Little Scholars Childcare. Here is what Ms. Harrison told us about her business.

1) Why did you start Today’s Little Scholars Childcare?
Today’s Little Scholars Childcare was created to provide the metro Portland community with safe, reliable and affordable high quality child care. While offering flexible hours to accommodate many schedules for families with Infants, Toddlers and School age children.
2) What do you love about running a day care business?
I love bonding with the children, watching them grow and develop. Watching them play and learn while interacting with their friends. I love watching them figure things out and turn to me with pride on their faces. I love their laughter, the genuine affection they offer, their honesty, their easy forgiveness, their gratitude for time spent with them. I love being able to offers a peace of mind to parents so they can focus on their work, while knowing their children are receiving the best possible care.

3) How long have you been running a day care business?
Here in Portland, Oregon since May of 2009.

4) What are your goals for Today’s Little Scholars?
My goal for Today’s Little Scholars Childcare is to expand to a commercial location. Persist in providing a safe and happy place for children where they can learn and grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially at their own pace. Children learn through play and will also benefit from a structured yet flexible schedule. Continue to offer a wide variety of activities, which will stimulate sensory motor development, language development and social interaction. The development of strong self-esteem is also a major goal. Children are taught to respect each other, adults, and property through positive guidance, reinforcement, and redirection.

5) How has PCRI assisted you?
PCRI has assisted me with the opportunity to operate my business in a stable, professional environment, good location and emotional support. PCRI genuinely cares. Thank you!!
