Our Staff

Autumn McComas

Hi, everyone! The families know me already and gave me the trust to go on with this project for Miss Adele’s Learning Center, where I’ve been working since April.

I started as a teacher for infants/toddlers and love every minute of it! I am a natural born leader and I came to Miss Adele’s with the intention of furthering my Early childhood education and becoming a leader.

I am currently certified with a CDA, ECPC, First aid and CPR and Fire extinguisher training. I’m working on my director’s credentials now which should be completed by September first.

On June 24th I was promoted to Director of this wonderful preschool and together with owners we’ve selected new teachers for taking care of your children.

Our mission here at Miss Adele’s is to provide the best possible quality of childcare in a safe, clean, loving and educational environment. We have new programs going on and VPK classes will start in August.

Our new educational furniture and material gave a new look to the inside of each class. New improvements are also made in the playground area. Everything is just so fresh and positive!

Call and schedule a tour, I’ll be happy to assist you with your needs.
