Precious Angels Christian Daycare first opened its doors in 1996 in our home in Louisville, KY. We were teaching and pouring into children and families there for four years until a job transfer moved us to Clinton Township, MI in 2000. We reopened in 2003 as Precious Angels Christian Academy. We are excited about this because, as you know, we only get one chance to build a foundation in our children that is not only based on ABC's and 123's, but also on the spiritual aspect that is so important in raising children in the world we live in today. We believe that it is so important that a child learns about their Creator. The foundation that we will partner with you in building will help point your child in the right direction. Pro 22:6
I graduated in 2010 from Baker College with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I am a Minister at Faith Christian Center (FCC) and am actively involved in many areas of ministry. I have worked in the Children’s Ministry at FCC for 3 years as a lead teacher in the Nursery, Preschool and Elementary school age children’s rooms. Currently, I am working in the youth ministry and am the worship leader for our praise and worship team. My husband, Tim, and I have been attending FCC for 10 years.
My love for children and learning, however, have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Nothing is better than seeing a child finally "get it" when you are teaching them something. Everyday children grow a little, and it is an awesome opportunity to witness and take part of that growth. I praise God for the opportunity to not only teach these children colors and letters but also the love of God.
Hello! My name is Amelia Marshall and I am the Lead kindergarten teacher. I have been teaching preschool for 19 years, as well as been a child advocate in a woman's shelter and have previously held the position as Children's Minister and Church Nursery Director at Faith Christian Center. I hold a BA in Social Work with a minor in Psychology from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. I have been working with children for over 30 years. I am not only qualified but dedicated to providing your child with the best Pre-school Education possible. I believe that children are the heritage of the Lord and that I am called to pour into them the things of God.
Our names are Maurice and Amelia Marshall. We are a very experienced and professional husband and wife team that in time, we hope you would also consider family. PACA is located in Chesterfield, MI inside of Faith Christian Center Church, which is our home church.
We are a state licensed childcare/preschool with experienced teachers, we offer care centered around your work schedule and we offer before & after-school care, so your child is able to receive the personalized care that he/she needs.
We would count it a blessing if you would allow us to partner with your child to change the world! We believe that when you entrust us with your children, you are entrusting us to partner with you in raising them and we do not take that responsibility lightly.
We are raising three wonderful children ourselves, so we understand the importance of building a foundation of strong moral character and academics. After all, we only get one chance to do this. So if you are looking for a Christian preschool with daycare hours, PACA is the place for you!
I have been working with children since 1993 when I began attending Bethel Tabernacle Church as a youth minister in Boston, MA. I never would have thought in a million years that working with children would be such a huge part of my life, then I met my wife. The rest they say is history. I do not have a degree in early childhood but I have been educated by the experiences of pouring into children for 22 years. My wife and I are blessed to be raising three wonderful children and I have also been blessed to have worked in ministries that have been saturated with serving children. I truly believe as the word of God teaches, that children are "an heritage of the Lord", and it is our responsibility to create an atmosphere that is condusive for healthy and fruitful growth.
Hello! My name is Tammy Abke. I am the Center Director here at Precious Angels Christian Academy and I feel very blessed to be here. I am excited to be a part of a Center that not only focuses on your childs academic growth, but also their spiritual growth. I have my degree in Early Childhood Education and have been working with children since 2000. I didn’t plan on working with children as a career, however, once I started, I realized how much I loved it and just knew this is what I was called to do. I feel that God has blessed me with the ability to really make a difference in children’s’ lives. I love that I get to interact with all of the children throughout my day. I am a mother of two wonderful children and understand the vital importance and desire for high quality care for your children. I look forward to partnering with you to offer your children the same values and committed quality care here at our Center, as they would in a loving and nurturing home environment.
Hi! My name is Dan Abke. I am one of the teachers here at Precious Angels Christian Academy. It is an honor to be working here alongside this wonderful staff. I have always wanted to be a teacher growing up; I just never knew what age group I wanted to work with. After a couple of years at Macomb Community College, I found the Early Childhood Education program and just loved it. I just knew that is where God intended for me to be. After graduating with my degree in Early Childhood Education, I have been working with preschoolers age 2-5 for the last 7 years. I love being a male role model for young children, as I feel this is something valuable that is missing from a lot of childcare/preschool centers. We are blessed to have two males on staff here at Precious Angels Christian Academy. I look forward to working with both you and your children.
