Williams Child Care was officially licensed by the state of Missouri August 29, 1981. While pursuing my degree in education at a local college I was unable to find quality child care that would accommodate my unusual hours, It became clear to me at that time that there was a great need for this service.
So, along with my mother, Mrs. Helen P. Williams we started Williams Child Care. Our dream, a 24 hour child care that could accommodate the busy schedules of working parents as well as students enrolled in school pursuing their education. We created a Family Child Care within an educational atmosphere within a warm family environment.
My mother was a loving mother, grandmother, devoted wife and local business owner. She always cared for and enjoyed family and friends. She had a big beautiful smile and an even bigger heart. She volunteered as a classroom teaching assistant for the local school district. She was a Sunday school teacher and secretary for the Sunday School. She worked private duty as a housekeeper /companion by day and a Data Entry Specialist for the Internal Revenue Service at night.
For the next 13 years my mother and I worked together to make Williams Child Care a sustainable business. It became a great source of Pride and Joy for her. In January of 1994 my loving mother went home to be with the Lord, leaving a hole in the hearts of our family and extended business family that no one else can ever fill.
Since then, for the last 19 years I have continued to fulfill the dream.
