About the Site Supervisor

Melissa, Regional Coordinator

Every child is unique, which makes every day at DCC different and exciting in its own ways. But the one thing that never changes is each child’s eagerness to explore and learn about the world around them. I love watching those moments of discovery and especially love joining in on the celebration after! I value the partnership we have with DCC families in finding the best ways to support each child’s development, and am inspired by the foundation that PACCC provides to encourage its community of educators.
