Meet Our Director

My name is Stephanie Whitehurst. I am a mother of 3 young children and have lived in Florida for most of my life. I have over 12 years classroom teaching experience with ages 6 weeks-12 years as well as over 3 years management experience in a large licensed preschool with 200+ children. I have been a teacher in every age group and I have a passion for teaching VPK!
I currently hold a level 2 directors credential with VPK Endorsement in addition to a Child Development Associates. I am currently in school as well to earn my degree in Human Resources and Organizational Leadership.

Building individual relationships with each child and knowing them by name is extremely important to me as well as being a resource to parents and staff. I love to see the transformation children make from their first day in our school until their last. I look forward to welcoming your child into our academy!

What Our Parents Are Saying

We were on the waiting list for months before Ladybird finally opened and we were pretty apprehensive of what to expect with it being so new.

After only 4 weeks I can tell you that this place is amazing. The center itself is obviously incredible, the attention to detail and play rooms are next level, but it is also the care we receive, communication from teachers and management has been good and the school itself is very flexible and accommodating to my needs which was an important factor in choosing this school.
