Celebrating 50 Years

January 22, 2015

Today is Fannie Curry Day at ChildCareGroup!

Fannie Curry - 1960sToday ChildCareGroup honors the incredible service and commitment of Ms. Fannie Curry, who began her career at CCG on January 22, 1965.

Fannie taught in the classroom for 17 years and in 1982 she transitioned over to CCG’s Family Day Home program, where she worked with providers who cared for infants and toddlers in their homes.

In the late 1980’s the federal government passed legislation that gave money to states for child care assistance. Texas developed the Child Care Management System and ChildCareGroup was awarded the contract to administer the subsidy program in Dallas and 7 other counties. We had to have the program up & running in just a month, so Fannie was recruited to help implement the program, which included enrolling children and setting up the payment system. Her expertise in early education, combined with an understanding of the billing and payment function, was a perfect fit.

Many things have changed in the last 50 years, but one thing has not: Fannie Curry’s commitment and dedication to ChildCareGroup and to the children and families we serve.

Fannie, we thank you for your service, and for being a wonderful colleague, mentor and friend to all of us.

2014-07-02_163111Meet Jacob and Jasmine.

When Jacob was 15 months old he was diagnosed with Cortical Dysplasia, a congenital abnormality of the brain. As if being a single mom wasn’t enough, Jasmine found herself dealing with economic and medical emergencies. Ms. Price needed to work to support her family, but she struggled to find personalized care for him that she could afford.

She enrolled Jacob in ChildCareGroup, and from age three to five, he received early-childhood education that included speech, physical, and occupational therapy. With the help of his teachers, Jacob graduated from ChildCareGroup with improved memory and comprehension and was able to speak in complete sentences while Jasmine was able to concentrate on her job and finish her business degree.

 

“Jacob has transformed from a shy, timid boy, debilitated by physical and mental challenges into a free, bubbly spirit. Without ChildCareGroup, Jacob would have been behind. Now at Uplift Hampton, Jacob has the attention he needs to build on the foundation he received from ChildCareGroup,” Ms. Price said.
