My name is Hollie Bentley I am the Director at our Learning Tree South Livonia location. I have worked within the early childhood field for about 8 years in many different positions. I started as an assistant teacher working with all age groups then took over as a lead toddler teacher while working on my early childhood degree. After I received my degree I stepped out of the classrooms and took on an administrative position with the state of Michigan's early childhood quality rating program where I was able to help child care programs and teachers assess their quality and connect them with improvement resources. I loved being able to visit different programs and see how different each center could be, but ultimately, I missed being able to connect with families and children on a day-to-day basis and wanted to be closer to the action which brought me into a director role. My personal values went hand and hand with The Learning Tree's core values so it has been a great fit for me!
