Hello, I am Ashley Bailey and I am called Ms. Ashley at Joy Kids. My position at Joy Kids is Lead Pre-K Bluebirds Teacher and Assistant Director. I have worked in the child care field for over 13 years and have obtained my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have 3 children: daughter who is 11 years old, son who is 10 years old and my youngest son is 6 years old. I always knew that being with children and teaching was the right career path for me. I look forward to helping families make sure their children are getting the proper education that will help them to be ready and prepared for Kindergarten. My goal is to one day be a Center Director.
