Mount Pleasant, SC – Betsy McArdle has joined Children’s Discovery Center, a Mount Pleasant child care provider, as education director. A public school educator for 12 years, McArdle has worked in general and special education and administration in four different states.
As the education director for both the South Carolina and Ohio centers, McArdle will oversee classrooms to support lesson plans and collaborate with teachers in their planning of the Reggio-inspired projects.
The Mount Pleasant center, located off Venning Road and Highway 17, tailors its learning environment to the world-renowned Reggio Emilia philosophy. From the infant child care program to the fully certified kindergarten, Children’s Discovery Center serves children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.
“I have had the blessing to have had my daughter enrolled at Children’s Discovery Center since opening day and have seen the center grow and evolve,” says McArdle. “The environment is always so welcoming, and when the opportunity presented itself for me to become a part of the team, I jumped on it!”
McArdle earned her bachelor’s degree in special education and a master’s degree in educational administration from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She later earned an additional certification in early childhood education.
