    Little Magic Moments Academy was established in 2017. The Founder and Director of LMMA, Shasia Willis, is directly involved in and responsible for overseeing the operations, scheduling and programming of the center.

These positions include administrator and teacher in several early childhood programs and case manager working with teenagers and young mothers in programs for delinquent youth.

    Ms. Willis is a member of several professional organizations including NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children), DVAEYC (Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children), ASCD (The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development).

    Ms. Willis completed her business training at WORC (The Women’s Opportunity Resource Center).
    The curriculum included training in all aspects of small business administration such as management, marketing, financial planning, savings, asset development and research.

    Ms. Willis received her Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education from Temple University in Philadelphia. She is currently pursuing her Master of Science Degree in Educational Leadership at Wilmington University.

    Ms. Willis has a team of professionals that help her run the center including an administrative assistant, assistant teachers, lead teachers and other important people that provide support services at the center.
