Walker Wells Learning Center (WWLC) is a top-rated, 24-hour child care program in North Carolina directed by Janae Liz Walker, an experienced educator, U.S. Army Veteran, and mother. It primarily serves single parents, foster care, and grandparent-guardian care families.
To be financially successful, WWLC needs to increase enrollments this year to full capacity. Enrolling children can exhaust providers focused on providing 24-hour care, day and night, to families in desperate need.
