I grew up in a small town called Whitesburg, Georgia. As a poor Woodard girl, I had to make my own living and opportunities.

Learning Starts with Toddlers

Nursery rhymes set to music aid in a child's development. Research also supports the assertion that music and rhyme increase a child's ability in reasoning, which supports mathematics skills.

I think most children have a feeling for rhythm in words and music.

Children Will Pay It Forward

When you invest in education and well being, children will pay it forward. Being equipped with knowledge and confidence; they will grow up to lead healthier, more productive lives.

Education is the road that children follow to reach their full potential in life, which permits each one to receive learning, instruction, and blossom.

Nutrition Is A Factor

Q: What do toddlers need iron for?

A: Iron is an important nutrient, no matter how old you are. Iron is an essential part of hemoglobin, which is the primary transporter of oxygen in the red blood cell. Iron is important for psychomotor and mental development in infants and children.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

— Martin Luther King, Jr.
