Meet Our Team
Hello! My name is Jamila. I am a native of Virginia Beach, Va. and the mother of two daughters. I am currently employed by Virginia Beach City Public Schools as a Physical Education Teacher Assistant while pursuing my teaching certification. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Regent University in May of 2018.
Over the past 30 years, I have enjoyed serving families and their children in many capacities. My experiences consist of babysitting (which I began at 13 years of age), serving as the Site Director for Virginia Beach City Parks and Recreation, and acting as Owner and Director of MiMi’s Place Home Daycare for 10 years, just to name a few. I have devoted much of my life to meeting the needs of military families within the Hampton Roads community by offering emergency support and care for children during unexpected deployment situations. I have also tutored several children who were struggling with reading and math at the elementary level. I enjoy helping children achieve great success as they navigate their way through the many developmental milestones.
I take great pride in offering them guidance and support to help build their self-confidence so that they can achieve success at a high level.
I am a devout Christian and a very active member in my church. I strive to display the love of Christ in all that I do. I pride myself in being loving, honest, patient, and very compassionate. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family (including my dog, Bailey), drawing, arts and crafts, playing board games, reading, and walking. I look forward to the opportunity to help support and create new and lasting memories for you and your children.

Hello My name is Jefferia Moore I am a mother of three, ages 34,22,20 and a grandmother of 6. I am a very enthusiastic person and enjoy life. I work well with others and enjoy making people smile. I enjoy working with and being around children.
I Have been working with children all of my life. I have Infant and Toddler CPR Training and certificates to show for other infant and toddlers training that I have taken. I was the children's Bible study teacher at Living Waters Christian Center in Hampton. In that classroom I taught children from the ages of 6 months to 13 years of age. I was also employed at Chuck E. Cheese’s where I started off as A birthday hostess then moving on to do Chuck E. Cheese himself. I truly enjoyed every minute of it even the children pulling chuck E. cheese down.
I’ve worked in Food Nutrition at General Stanford where I formed a bond with few of the children. I then started with Calvary Chapel Christian Academy as the children's summer bible school teacher and stayed on as the Child Nutrition Manager, P.E. Teacher and the Before and after school teacher and office assistant. At C.C.C.A the parents appreciated my love and concern for their children.
I don’t mind doing silly things or being extra loving for the children first thing in the morning. I truly believe that our children are our future and want to help shape their minds and hearts.
Hi!! My name is NiaMarie! I graduated from Winston-Salem State University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Concentration in Neuroscience. I worked in Campus ministry and outreach feeding and mentoring underprivileged families in the surrounding areas.
I moved to Virginia in Summer 2019 where I can begin my exploration of my career aspirations. I worked at Eastern State Hospital as a psychiatric technician utilizing the therapeutic care model.
I soon switched over, to where my passion is, working with children and adolescents. I began to work as a Mental Health Counselor at Newport News Behavioral Health Center, where I fell in love with caring for children on the frontline.
I am currently studying for my Master’s in Clinical Psychology with Applied Research. I signed up for my Master’s so that I can expand my knowledge in psychology so that I can be stronger in my current role and experiences. As I’m studying for my Master’s I plan to take full advantage of my coursework and research to gain the knowledge I need to create my vision for my future endeavors.
My ultimate goal is to open my own facility. I am ready for all challenges and growth to enhance my character and experiences.
