LA PLATA, Md. (Oct. 1, 2008)—Carolyn Parker has been named director of the St. Charles Children’s Learning Center at the College of Southern Maryland. The center provides childcare for the children of students, faculty, staff, and community.

Parker received her master’s degree in education with a concentration in Leadership in Teaching from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland and her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from Sojourner-Douglass College in Baltimore.

Parker previously served as an education specialist for the Southern Maryland Tri-County Community Action Committee Head Start program where she oversaw more than 60 educators. Parker also served on the Maryland State Department of Education Board’s Evaluation Committee tasked with curriculum review and recommendation for state endorsement.

Now at CSM, she said she is excited to be guiding the staff toward their teacher and assistant teacher certifications.

“I would like to see the center go through the Maryland State Department of Education accreditation process, receive its accreditation and provide our children and families with the highest quality of care,” Parker said regarding the center’s ongoing preparations prior to applying for accreditation. “By accomplishing this task, our children will leave the center ready for kindergarten.”
