Today is Fannie Curry Day at ChildCareGroup!
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.
