A long career in child care and pre-school officially ends this week. Tommye Young, teacher, cook and bus driver of Little Tyke Creative Child Care, Inc., will retire after 41 years with the center in Richland Hills.
When she was hired as a teacher, ‘Little Tyke Hotel’, as it was known then, had one center and 75 children. Now it has 12 centers in Tarrant, Johnson and Parker Counties, and hosts more than 1,300 children every day – from infant up to age twelve.
Miss. Tommye has always demonstrated the stellar work ethic you want in the child care industry. She missed very little work during her 41 year tenure here at Little Tyke. “You could always count on Miss Tommye being there for her children and she always supported the center director”, says Alex Little President of ‘Little Tyke Creative Child Care, Inc’.
“Miss Tommye changed my diapers as a toddler when I attended the Richland Hills campus 40 years ago”, said Little. She has been an important asset to our company and a prime example for our Teachers. We want to say “Great Job Miss Tommye”. You will be dearly missed, you are absolutely a true blessing. We hope to carry on your excellence for years to come.
