Jeanna Pine

Owner/ CFO

I have been in the childcare industry for over twelve years.  For nine years I was a supervisor at a gym in the kids center and three and half years as an Assistant Director at a local Childcare center. I have been married for 26 years to my husband Clay.  We have three children Caitlyn, Courtney and Clifton and one grandson, Jaxson. I am very passionate about children and love working with them to see them succeed!  There is nothing better than a hug from a child or a child’s laughter!  

I have been in the Childcare industry for the last 8 years running my own in-home daycare and a mom for the last 9 years to my 3 beautiful children Alexa, Aliyah and Treyvn.  It has always been a dream of mine to own my own facility. So my husband Tashone and I knew that purchasing Through the Years Childcare would be a perfect fit for our family. The relationships created with all the children, parents and staff mean the world to me and remind me daily how much I love my profession.


Julie Merriman

Assistant Director
I have been with Through the Years Childcare for the last 8 years. I have had the opportunity to be a teacher in all classrooms. As acting assistant director, I’m able to float between all the rooms and interact with all the children and assist the teachers. I have been married to my husband Matt for the last 9 years.  I truly love the relationships I have created with all the families and that I get to watch all the children grow and learn year after year.
