We’re Ready to Bring the Doodle Difference to More Families in Florida!

Doodle Bugs! is excited to be growing our Doodle community in Florida. Currently, we operate one child care center, in Palm Beach County, have another center opening later this year in Lakewood Ranch, and have plans to continue growth in the Sunshine State in the coming years. In anticipation of our growth, we are thrilled to introduce you to the newest member of our team. Welcome, Emily Ralston, Director of Operations in Florida!

Without further ado, let’s hear from Emily:

I am thrilled to join the Doodle Bugs! team as Director of Florida Operations. You can be assured that I will do everything in my power to exceed your child care expectations, while creating an inspiring, fun-filled and safe learning environment for your child.

Devoted to the field of Early Childhood Education for the last fourteen years, I am committed to offering all children an education that enriches and nurtures them not only academically, but socially, emotionally, and physically as well.  Over the course of my career, I have worked with children of all ages including children with special needs.  Prior to becoming Director of Operations, I held positions including: toddler instructor, Pre-K instructor, VPK instructor, and Center Director and Executive Director for Early Childhood and school age programs for eight charter schools.  Functioning in various capacities within the field has helped me to develop a passion for and a solid understanding of what it takes to offer high-quality child care and meaningful learning experiences for young children.

Making the transition to Doodle Bugs! has allowed me to continue to grow professionally and participate in the growth of what I believe are programs that lay the groundwork for a successful educational foundation for our participants. I will maintain high standards for all programs and ensure that your child will gain the skills they need to be successful in all aspects of their growth and development.

As we continue to grow, we are excited to be able to share the Doodle Difference with more families and feel grateful for all who have been a part of our community over the last 25 years.
