CEO Message


     Children enter life with huge potential. But achieving that potential requires encouragement and support, and an environment that is rich in opportunities to learn and develop the whole child. Parents, teachers and child care providers can give these gifts to every child.

     Parents also need support -- to make a better life for themselves and their families, and to build their skills as the first and most important teachers of their children.

     I started as a preschool teacher, and was privileged to watch children bloom, become even more excited about learning, and build relationship skills with peers and adults. I founded Options for Learning to create a good place for many more children and families to benefit from this support.

     We exist to create options and opportunity for our children and families, through the highest quality services. Our work is the most rewarding, and most important, possible.

     Our goal is that all children will achieve their potential.

Cliff Marcussen,

Executive Director
