By Sarah Shurge – Legacy Learning Center is bringing affordable and quality childcare to the City of Wayne.
“We don’t have any daycares in Wayne, living expenses have gone up, and quality childcare is important, so you don’t have to worry what’s going on with your children,” said Sabrethea Rice, Legacy Learning Center owner.
The Wayne location will be the third Legacy Learning Center daycare, one being located in Romulus. “This new location is perfect for any type of transportation a parent has,” said Kamellah Staten, Legacy Learning Center owner. “It’s right down the street from the high school and around the corner from the middle school, so parents don’t have to do much driving or even if they have to walk, parents don’t have to worry about how to get their child to daycare.”
Rice has been part-owner of Legacy Learning Center for nine years, while Staten has been part-owner for five years. Both Rice and Staten are teachers as well.
Legacy Learning Center provides a high-scope curriculum and interactive learning environment. It provides an opportunity for children to grow physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally while in a safe and stimulating environment. The center encourages the development of your child’s self-esteem, independence, confidence, responsibility, and respect for others. “We plan to build future legacies through education,” said Rice.

Legacy Learning Center has qualified and experienced staff. Teachers have been background checked, CPR trained, with 100+ hours of training. Children with autism are welcome at Legacy Learning Center. The center supplies nutritious meals, even to children with any dietary differences (children with allergies, non-dairy, vegan, etc.)
“I love being the reason the kids are able to come in and have an enjoyable day. We leave an everlasting impression on them,” said Rice. The teachers not only love the kids, but they love what they do as teachers.
“When I got into this, I never thought I would like being a teacher, but I love it more than anything. It gives me purpose, to keep going, to teach them,” said Staten.
