About Us

My name is Alena Stewart but everyone calls me Mrs. “Lena”. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services and a certification in early childcare development; I have worked in the field of childcare professionally since 2002. My background before starting my own childcare facility includes working as a teacher’s aide in the Henrico County public school system where I primarily assisted with caring for children with disabilities. I was also lead teacher at a childcare facility operating through the Department of Defense and Supply.

Owned/Operated by Alena Stewart & Family

I am a loving wife and mother of three sons. My oldest son was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at a young age. I was worried, confused, and afraid when I needed to place him in daycare. My worries and fears came true. After witnessing the mediocre care and attention my oldest child was receiving at a large day care center, I decided to open my own childcare center. I wanted to ease the anxiety and frustrations that most parents experience when trying to find the perfect place for their children by making the adjustment process very convenient and comfortable.

Our Precious Scholars opened its doors to little ones in 2011, and we have enjoyed every minute of it. We have had the pleasure of meeting dozens of young children along with their wonderful parents who have supported our center and entrusted their children to remain in our care. We believe that every precious child deserves to be treated like one of our own in a comfortable and loving environment. That is why we are truly willing to turn our home into your home whenever you need us!
