Hi! My name is Vickie and I’m the owner behind Early Childhood Education Planner. By trade I’m an Occupational Therapist, but I’m also a wife, mom, daughter and best of all a grandma. I have been an Occupational Therapist for over 23 years. I have always loved working with children. As I began teaching early childhood classes 10 years ago I noticed that many directors struggled with keeping up the fun but little known holidays along with the daily struggles of being the director. I decided to make a planner to help directors keep focused and have fun at the same time.
There were so many planners out there, but none of them were truly designed with the early childhood director in mind.
Therefore, many late nights were spent designing after my day job and grandma duties were completed, which led to the creation and launch of Early Childhood Education Planner. The planner that was made specifically for early childhood educators and entrepreneurs that are trying to do it all between payroll, staff observations, taxes and so much more.
My beginnings are simple, I am the owner of PALS- Physical & Academic Learning Services in Columbus, Texas. After getting married I became an Occupational Therapy Assistant then went on to get my Masters of Occupational Therapy and a Doctorate of Occupational Therapy from Belmont University in Nashville, TN.
I have lectured nationally on the topic of Autism, ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorders, along with Early Childhood training in Texas as a Master Register Trainer #3350.
