Parent Representative

Chris Potsch first came to Lakeland’s Little Learners in 2016, and now has had 4 children attend the center. He is interested in seeing LLL maintain its quality teachers and reward the staff for its excellent work. The center should continue to focus on supporting the fast paced changes in parent and child life, and he will look to support policies that drive toward this goal. He is an experienced manager and can help drive changes identified as necessary. He also has children in every level at LLL and has been through all but one room/teacher group in the center, which provides him with an appreciation for the distinct care and environment needed at each age. Chris is excited to represent the parents and assist in growing LLL into an even better institution. If you have any issues or questions you would like voiced at the meetings please feel free to contact Chris.
