Blandi Child Learning Center was established by Ms. Blandina Fernandez who was a High School teacher at University of Cebu, Philippines. She graduated with Bachelors Degree in Education majors in History and English, AA degree in Child Development at Southeastern University, District of Columbia, USA.
With the passion for teaching, she relocated to the United States to become a center Director in the District of Columbia, USA. That experience inspired her to venture into childcare business. After fifteen years of experience and building relationships with colleagues in the education field, she was presented with the opportunity to open her own daycare center.
Now run by her children, Blandi’s CLC continues to serve families in the community, providing a safe and nurturing environment with the highest regard for cultural differences and overall diversity.
Blandi’s Child Learning Center is committed to provide families with the highest standard of child inspired professionally nurtured care and opportunities for learning.
