It is with mixed feelings that The Childcare Network announces the retirement of our leader and Executive Director, Regina Maloney. We are so happy for her. She is looking forward to spending more time with her grandchildren. We are sad, because we will miss her daily dose of wisdom and humor. Donna Wilson-Peal was named the Executive Director, effective April 1, 2021.
Regina began The Childcare Network in her basement almost 30 years ago, assisting parents in finding childcare. Since then, it has grown to serving parents and over 3000 providers in the 26 counties of Northern Virginia by becoming a regional office for Child Care Aware of Virginia. She added the USDA food program sponsorship to family child care providers and the respite care program for Navy families with special needs children in later years.
We looking forward to celebrating her retirement in the near future, once we are able to gather again. We will share more information as soon as it becomes available.
