“Working at Play Smart Literacy helped me grow as a professional in so many ways. When I started I was an intern and got a lot of hands on experience in early childhood education through attending play visits with Michelle. There is a so much room for growth within the company and I eventually got moved up to media coordination and then doing some team management tasks. Michelle is an excellent employer to work for. She is caring, empathetic, and truly wants to improve the lives of those she serves. I recommend working at Play Smart Literacy. ”
