Beth Lovett, Business Development Administrator at Two Maids & A Mop Franchise and Childcare Resources’ Junior Board President
Beth Lovett was an administrator at a local child care facility when she was introduced to Childcare Resources’ programs and services in 2018. With years of experience and a passion for providing high quality early education for some of our youngest neighbors, she eagerly accepted the opportunity to begin her journey as a volunteer serving on Childcare Resources’ Junior Board.
This year, Beth began the role of serving on the Junior Board’s Executive Committee as President. Motivated by the agency’s mission and her commitment to the field of early learning, Beth shared about her experience with Childcare Resources and her goals as this year’s Junior Board President.
Share a few words about your relationship and experience with the agency as a Junior Board Member. What interested you to begin your service with Childcare Resources?
As a former child care administrator, I was introduced to Childcare Resources through their Training and Technical Assistance Program for child care providers. I learned more about the agency through this professional connection and was thrilled to join the Junior Board when approached by another member. Serving on the Junior Board has been a wonderful experience because it has allowed me an inside look at the agency’s commitment to educating the youngest members of our community through helping to develop high-quality child care centers in our area.
What benefit do you believe Childcare Resources brings to the community?
I have personally used the Resource and Referral Program at Childcare Resources and they were such a big help in giving me a number of quality child care options in my area. It is so nice to feel confident in getting a referral from an organization that understands what quality child care is.
Share a bit about your experience in 2020 as a parent with young children:
Parenting young children in 2020 was a challenge for many parents, and I am no different. Navigating a pandemic with quarantine, mask wearing, social distancing, and constant hand-washing with children under 5 is no small feat; not to mention the feelings that go along with all of those things. I am hopeful for an easier year and future for all of us as the pandemic starts to wane. I am choosing positivity in the face of struggle and try to encourage my littles to do the same.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021 as the President of the Junior Board?
As Junior Board President, I look forward to another fantastic year with the agency. We (the Junior Board) are shooting for the stars in 2021, and I cannot wait to see what we are able to accomplish in supporting Childcare Resources.
