Child Care Aware of NW Washington is thrilled to welcome Delenee Brugman to our team as the Early Achievers Lead in Mt. Vernon, serving Island and Skagit Counties. Delenee brings an outstanding mix of business and management skills, as well as a passion for children and learning.
Ten years ago, Delenee left a successful real estate career to earn her Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Her journey to Child Care Aware included working as an English Language arts tutor, as a kindergarten aid, an after-school program teacher, and as a co-founder of a preschool in a rural farm community.
As an Early Achievers Lead, Delenee supervises five Early Achievers coaches who work from our Mt. Vernon office. Altogether, our Mt.Vernon team provides free coaching and consultation to 103 child care providers located from Whidbey Island to Marblemount. “We ultimately empower our youngest learners to reach their full potential, and we do it through supportive relationships amongst people with the same heart and with the same goal.”
If you are a new or aspiring child care provider in Island, Skagit, San Juan, Snohomish, or Whatcom County, we are here to support you. Reach out to learn more about Early Achievers and how it benefits child care programs, children, and families.
