I am Beth McAvoy the Owner and Director of Charger Child Care, Inc. I earned an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education over 30 years ago. Since then I have worked in many centers from very small to very large, in every capacity from cook to director.
My dream of owning and operating my own center has come true. Charger Child Care was born, January 21, 2008, which also happens to be our youngest son’s birthday!
My husband, Audi, and I have been married for over 30 years. We have three grown children, two sons and a daughter and daughter in-law.
Our family moved to Orion in November of 2000. Before that, Audi was in the USAF and we traveled a little. We lived in Biloxi Mississippi, Fairbanks Alaska, Washington D.C., and Rochelle Illinois. During that time I worked in a variety of styles of child care centers and have seen how differently they can be. I have learned from the different styles of centers from around the U.S.A. and have taken all the best ideas to create Charger Child Care, Inc.
Hi, I’m Darci McLaughlin. I am Charger Child Care’s Assistant Director and I am also the teacher of the 2 – 3 year olds. I have been with Charger Child Care since September 2011.
I graduated from Cambridge High School and then attended Black Hawk College for two years, and graduated with my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Development.
In 2008 I moved to the Sherrard area, and in 2009 I married Doug McLaughlin. In 2011 we bought a house in New Windsor where we currently live with our two children.
I started working in child care in 2008. Since then I have worked with infants, toddlers and school age children, both as a teacher and an assistant director. I enjoy the busyness of the classroom and environment, and meeting all of our local families.
