Debra Hurd Director/Owner

EDUCATION: I received my associates degree in early childcare education from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in 2004. My previous background is in childcare, elementary education, & special education.  I have worked in public school as well as the private sector for many years.  I have spent the last 4 years working as a lead pre-k teacher in a childcare center. I feel very privileged that I can work with children every day. It is truly my hearts passion.

 

EARLY CHILDHOOD: I was born in Pascagoula, Mississippi and moved here to Austin, Texas in 2014. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and always loved going to school and doing my homework. My ultimate dream was to open my own childcare center and I am so happy to say that my dream has come true!!

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION: My name is Debra Hurd and I am happily married to my husband Aaron for 14 years. We have three handsome sons Jashun, Jordyn, and Jadyn. My favorite color is red and my favorite character is Mickey Mouse. I find great joy in my daily routine to have a hand in preparing our community's children for their future. It is a wonderful feeling to get the opportunity to be a part in molding the growth of each child.  It is especially rewarding to have a job where I receive smiles, hugs, laughter, drawings, and get to enjoy the great moments that mean so much to the children I have in my care. I look forward to being a step in each child’s ladder of life experiences.  I make it my duty to provide a safe and loving learning environment for all children to thrive. ​​ Thank you for giving me the privilege to work with your most precious possession.
