Staff

staffMost of our teachers have a two or a four year degree in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, psychology, sociology, or in another related field. We have found that there is simply no substitute for educated, dedicated teachers. We work very hard to maintain low staff turnover, and as a result we have a very low turnover of children. Twenty years of experience in the child care field has taught us that our staff makes all the difference! Nicole Robbins, Owner and Founder I started Peace of Mind in 1993, after graduating from the University of St. Thomas with a degree in Business Entrepreneurship. I knew more than anything that I wanted to be with children, and that by partnering with parents, we could create a unique place for children to grow and thrive. Peace of Mind has evolved over the years into a home away from home for so many children. I feel incredibly blessed to have this job that is truly amazing! To be given the opportunity to be a part of so many families lives in such a unique and personal way – is incredibly joyful. Our team is always looking for ways we can do more for parents, so that they can have what we aim to provide – Peace of Mind, while their kids are in our care.
