About Us

10 years ago, Learners for Life Child Development Center was founded by 35 year veteran educator, Ann Jerkins-Harris. Mrs. Jerkins-Harris holds a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and is a recipient of the Martha Holden Jennings Scholarship Award for being an outstanding educator, a Literacy Specialist Award, for being an outstanding leader of teachers and a recognition award letter from State Representative Theresa Fedor recognizing her for outstanding achievement in Early Childhood.

Mrs. Jerkins-Harris developed a great concern over the need for high quality readiness programs for young children as well as the many challenges parents face today. This passionate concern, validated by school district report cards and research has motivated Mrs. Jerkins-Harris, to reach beyond our present traditional services and offer a comprehensive early childhood program.
