Lori & Darrel Richards
My name is Lori Richards and am the owner of Five Star Learning Center. I have been in the Early Childhood Field for over 30 years, working in various centers. I built the center in December of 2011 and have watched it grow into an impeccable day care center. My staff have great qualities and believe in the importance of education and caring for our young children. My husband Darrel Richards and I together, own a second day care center in Mount Vernon, IL, since November of 2017. We work hard to continuously provide for our families, their children, and our staff.
My name is Teresa Caldwell and also part owner of Five Star Learning Center. We opened the building in December of 2011 and I have watched it blossom and grow over the past 10 years. I have over 35 years of day care experience working with various age groups. I have 3 grown children of my own and 9 grandkids who all keep me on my toes. Although, I am not there often due to taking care of my elderly mom I work behind scenes to help manage the center and our families. I enjoy visiting with children and watching them grow throughout the years.
