My name is Pepper Near. I have been working with children and families for the majority of my career. I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Master's degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration, an Associate degree in Early Childhood Development and a Preschool Child Development Credential from the National Council for Professional Recognition. I worked for MMLC under Cassie Thelen for several years and when the opportunity arose to purchase the business from her, I was excited to be the one to carry on the excellence. I am striving to make MMLC the best place it can be and hope that all of our present and future families think enrolling their child at MMLC was one of the best decisions they made! I have an open door-so anytime you need or want to chat, stop in!
