Child's Play Is Commited To Love And Attention


Virginia Leach Guggenberger, the owner of Child’s Play child care center, began her experience in 1978 when she graduated from Mankato State University. Virginia earned degrees in Education, Consumer Homemaking and Family Life. From 1979 to 1982 she taught Home Economics in the Anoka Hennepin Independent School District. From 1982 to 1987 Virginia worked with Early Childhood Services as a Parent Educator and ran a family child care center in her home. In 1992 Virginia was invited to speak for a conference sponsored by Childcare Choices about her vision to open a preschool. Through this experience, her vision evolved and in January of 1994 Virginia opened Child's Play childcare center, a daycare center with an emphasis on early childhood education.
