Lucas Ramirez, a Blended Learning Teacher, is a Perfect Fit for Osprey Daycare
Childcare selection is one of the most critical decisions parents must make, both financially and otherwise. Families need to ensure they make an intelligent selection suited for their child(ren).
Sarah Morgan’s one-year-old son Lucas attends an early learning center of YMCA Anacortes; however, this center recently decided to close and she is having difficulty finding another option for daycare services for Lucas.
Early Life and Education
Daycare plays an essential role in both children’s lives and those of their parents, offering both safe environments to play and learn while also giving parents peace of mind that their child(ren) are being cared for by trained professionals. Finding an appropriate daycare that offers various services – preschool programs, infant childcare and after school activities are among them – as well as considering its teacher-to-child ratio and any safety regulations regarding outdoor play should be top of your priority list.
Lucas transformed military child care in an era when high-quality child care was unheard of, by testifying at hearings leading up to the passage of the Military Child Care Act and mandating extensive reforms. She constructed world-class facilities, implemented background checks and training, raised staff compensation levels, formed alliances with partners like 4-H, Boys and Girls Clubs of America and university cooperative extension programs and more.
Lucas not only provides child care services but has also worked as an assistant teacher. He believes blended learning to be an effective teaching method that allows all types of students to engage with material in ways most meaningful to them.
He currently serves as Smart Sitting’s Community Coordinator, working closely with sitters and nannies to ensure they have all of the resources necessary for successful childcare careers. This is accomplished via various initiatives like babysitting coaching sessions as well as live professional development workshops.
He takes great pleasure in working with children and their families, enjoying the challenges associated with providing high-quality childcare services. Furthermore, he values his flexible career enabling him to work from home.
Achievement and Honors
Lucas Ramirez stands out among children his own age; with an intellect as sharp as any whip and bright eyes that light up when he smiles; yet, he can be unpredictable, including throwing tantrums or breaking strollers, child safety gates and toys while even biting, scratching or kicking his own mother!
His tutors at Eastleigh College nominated Lucas for the 2021 NCFE Aspiration Awards ‘Against All Odds” category, which recognizes learners who have overcome major personal circumstances to reach educational success. Lucas was selected as winner and awarded with a prize of PS250.
The Maurice Lucas Foundation is dedicated to continuing the legacy of its founder. This organization works tirelessly to support students whose educational and social needs often go unmet, while serving as a valuable resource to the wider community.
Lucas is an affectionate child who enjoys being held. He also engages in pointing and hands-on exploration, showing his curiosity with everything around him. Lucas has an incredible sense of humor, is very loving and has many friends he calls on regularly.
The Morgans reside on an island in northwest Washington and their child care options are severely limited. Their nearest YMCA center is 40-minute drive away; hourly rates of in-home nannies don’t match Morgan’s and her husband’s paychecks either.
Kristen found herself so preoccupied with preparing and marketing her online program that she felt overwhelmed, missing out on time spent with family and friends. So she hired a coach to teach her how to be both mother and businesswoman at once.
Lucas lives with his wife and children on two-and-a-half acres in an Osprey home, which serves as their source of happiness and fulfillment. They all make his heart sing when he’s able to help make their dreams a reality.
Lucas earns an excellent income through TikTok videos. By producing content that draws in millions of fans, he receives both advertising revenue and promotional brand deals for his content creations.
George Lucas has three biological children, with Jett serving in the film industry and appearing in several Star Wars movies.
