Child Care Consultant Services, Inc. is the proud sponsor of TAC and represents a combined field experience of more than 45 years in the fields of early childhood education and child day care. The corporation was formed in 1989 as the response to community needs from the stated desire on the parts of employers, government, parents, and child care providers for enhanced child care options. Since that time, Child Care Consultant Services, Inc. has established a new concept in school-age child care which is located in the public schools throughout the New River Valley.
Donna Thornton Roberts, Founder of Child Care Consultant Services, Inc., has been involved in child day care since 1977 when she opened Christiansburg’s first licensed child care center, Tiny Tots Day Care Center, Inc. The child care field was so new to the area that the Town Council issued her a special zoning permit as a nursing home for children.
Her administrative experience continued to grow with the 1985 opening of a second center in Shawsville, Virginia, known as Shawsville Tots Child Care Center. In 1991, she expanded services into Dublin, Virginia, by opening Tiny Tots #2, located in Pulaski County.
In 1992, Donna won two contracts to provide on-site child care for school-age children in Montgomery and Giles Counties. Today there are before and after school programs in many public schools in the New River Valley.
