Roger and Audria Johnson
"Without JCC’s support, we would not be here today"We’ve always had a desire to raise children.
Three years ago, we decided to go to Johnston Community College and earn our associate’s degree in early childhood education so we could expand our in-home day care.
Today, we are both graduates of the early childhood education program at JCC and operate a five-star licensed child care center in Kenly. Using what JCC taught us, we now care for some 100 children from birth to age 12.
Everything we know about early childhood education we learned at JCC. We now employ 19 teachers, many of whom are current students or graduates of JCC. We support continuing education at JCC because we know the instructors will prepare our teachers for the classroom.
JCC’s flexible class schedule allowed us to earn our degree through night and online classes so we could still work and raise our four children. And the onsite preschool gives you the opportunity to see best practices in action.
We can’t say enough about our local community college. Without JCC’s support, we would not be here today.
We’re Roger and Audria Johnson and we’re 2006 and 2007 graduates of Johnston Community College.
