Setting a New Standard in Child Care
Granny & Dot's is Owasso's most state of the art child care facility. We are the owners, Aaron & Adrienne. We have two amazing children and have been foster parents to several beautiful children. We have both been full-time working parents since our oldest child was born & in that time have had several different childcare experiences, both good & bad. Through fostering we saw an additional need for quality childcare in Owasso. We are proud to be family owned. We are not another corporate franchise where you and your children are just numbers. Our goal is to nurture all types of children, not just children in more typical walks of life, but also for kids that might have come from hard places. While we are not a special needs facility, we are strive to have all of our teacher trained with additional recourses to work with children that may need a little extra emotional support. Along with this we also partner with Sprouts Child Development to help ensure your child can meet their developmental milestones. We are dedicated to working with parents & we will do our best to meet the needs of your children. Our mission statement is "Just like leaving your kids with family". Which brings us to the name Granny & Dot's. Granny & Dot represent both of our grandmothers. Aaron’s Grandmother, Mary Lee has always been known as Granny. Adrienne’s Grandmother was named Dorothy but everyone called her Dot. We felt that this name was perfect because as children, if we were not at home, we wanted to be at our grandma’s house. We want the children in our center to feel safe & cared for, every time they enter our facility, the same way that we felt when we were with our grandparents. We also want our parents to feel like we are partnering with them. We know that being a parent, of a young child, is one of the busiest season of life. Parents deserve to be heard, & supported when it comes to the care of their child. We are here to support your kids & to help support you in every way we can.
Adrienne is a wife to Aaron for over a decade, and mother of 2 beautiful kiddos, Giuliana & Liam. She is a registered nurse and her bedside specialty was Adult Intensive Care. She has also worked as the Sr. Manager of an Insurance Company, managing over 60 nurses & most recently designing IT systems for nurses to use. She has always had a passion for education for her patients, herself & her children. After utilizing childcare as a working mother & a foster mom for many years, that passion for education was amplified into the need for quality childcare centers that focus on early learning & not babysitting. Granny & Dot's was born after many conversations, drawings on scratch pads, & a push from God to make a change. When Adrienne is not at the center you can find her singing on the worship team at her local church, volunteering in Kids Worship for elementary school aged children, reading a good Karen Kingsbury book, or enjoying a wonderful dessert! She also enjoys working out & spending time in the bible.
Aaron is Adrienne's husband. He was an EMT & spent several years working in the ER. He then went into Biomedical Engineering where he designed & maintained all types of medical equipment for a major Tulsa hospital before moving on to work for a medical equipment manufacture. During his career he helped in the construction of two major hospitals in NE OK. He became self-employed in 2016 & has had a passion for business ever since. Aaron is just as passionate about children. He & Adrienne have seen both good & bad childcare centers through fostering & when they decided to build a childcare facility they wanted to make sure education was at its core for both the children & the staff. Aaron loves volunteering at his church & is most often coaching in the elementary kids area. Aaron loves anything & everything to do with motorsports. His favorites are Supercross, F1, & Street Outlaws. In his free time you might find him under the hood of his hotrod or riding his motorcycle. Fun fact about Aaron, he was on the Price is Right in 2008 & won a car. He also won a motorcycle in 2011.
My husband and I have been married since 2001 and we have two children. We love all things baseball. My favorite way to spend my free time is with my family at the lake or having a bonfire! I have worked in a childcare setting for 25 years. I have my Child Development Associate and I have experience with all age groups. I love to educate teachers on planning unique, child-led activities and taking learning outdoors! My goal is to create a dynamic haven for early learners. Our center envisions a future where every child thrives in an environment that promotes growth, resilience, and success; laying the groundwork for a lifetime of confident achievement and fulfilled potential.
