Aside from her teaching background she has 12 years of direct patient care experience in a variety of capacities fostering her need to care for others.

“I have always loved working with kids. I have been caring for children since my first babysitting job at 13, and taking care of younger siblings before that. My love of children followed through to my education/career path. Despite my love for children and desire to teach I decided to shift my focus the last few years to work with my husband to grow our heating and cooling business. This has benefited me in more ways than I ever could have imagined, and planted the entrepreneurial seed. Now that our heating and cooling business is well established I can focus on my passion, and get back to doing what I love which is caring for children! I am so excited to be opening Lake Country Childcare, and can’t wait to see what the future holds!”
Samantha Pedretti, Center Director
Samantha Pedretti is the center director. She has her Bachelor of Science in Education and over 12 years of experience working in a daycare setting in varying capacities. Samantha is a busy mom of four active kids (12,7,5 and 3.) She loves the outdoors, watching movies, gardening, and spending time with her family.
“It is my passion to help children grow, learn and to meet their fullest potential which can be achieved through a safe, warm, loving environment. I strongly believe that children learn best through play and self-discovery. Developing a curriculum around the children’s interests and needs helps foster a child’s motivation and willingness to learn. This will help develop a child’s emotional, social, intellectual, and physical skills. As director, I not only want to connect with the children that attend, I want to keep a strong, healthy, supportive relationship with the families.”
