My name is VanNessa Duckett, I am the owner and a daily administrator at Polite Piggy’s Camp. I have been a classroom teacher for over 16 years and working with children even longer! As well, I attained an administrative degree in School Administration to understand the larger context of working with large groups of children, parents, community and a full complement of staff members. Polite Piggy’s Camp was opened to offer a high quality child care experience to families of small children for one little summer. Seven years later, we are still growing, thinking and challenging ourselves to meet the needs of our families. School-aged children are a very special population and I am dedicated to understanding their needs; academically, physically, socially and emotionally. Additionally, in the last 7 years we have many children who have “grown up” in the program and we have expanded to serve children through the age of nine.
The same care goes into preparing for the unique needs of our older children, lovingly called, “the Big Kids”. As a result, we prepare specialized programs to serve their needs as well.
