Keana Baylis knew she wanted to teach since the age of 10 when she tutored her cousins for 25 cents or the fact that she had a desk in her room where she pretended to teach her stuff bears. That dream turned into a vision when she became a young parent at the age of 16, now a parent of 4. She was intrigued how children developed mentally. Ms. Baylis, started working for a home child care in Indiana the year 2007. She pursued being an assistant director, then director when she returned home to Chicago in 2009. There she studied for her Bachelors of Early Childhood Education with a Type 04 Certification at Kendall College. In 2013, back in South Bend, her commitment to high quality early childhood education was birthed to Little Village Home Child Care LLC. Her accomplishments other than education and a CDA includes being recognized as a Paths to Quality Provider Level 3, and an On My Way Pre-K Provider. Ms. Baylis purpose is to impact lives in the thousands of positive relationships built with teachers, parents, community leaders, and most importantly, the children she serve. Keana’s philosophy is “it takes a village to raise a child.”
