Today we’d like to introduce you to Onika Miller.
Hi Onika, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
As a mother of two wonderful children, I am always concern about the environment that my children are spending their time in. so I created learning spaces in my home so that my children can enter preschool with a sense of wonder and a love of learning. Over the years, and in an effort to be the best parent that I can be, I gradually transitioned from the business and finance industry and started to build my knowledge base in early childhood education.
This has heightened my sensitivity to value early learners and to see children as a clear whiteboard with an insatiable appetite for knowledge. This can only happen when children have learning spaces that create experiences that are engaging and enjoyable. This means allowing children to have positive experiences that would guide their decision-making skills and to feel competent and confident in their choices as they explore.
As an early childhood educator, I am routinely monitoring the learning spaces to ensure that I am offering early learners engaging and enjoyable learning experiences that would fuel their intellect and build their confidence. The learning environment for early learners should connect children’s growing needs and interest in learning as well as integrate learning in the various developmental domains.
We believe that children learn their best when they have the ability to explore and interact in their learning environment at their own pace and time. We further believe that their learning environment should be enriched with high-quality learning that is clearly defined and enriched. Hence our reasons for aiming to provide classroom spaces/centers that house a variety of learning materials for your child to use as tools for their individualized disciplinary and cross-disciplinary learning. Hence the creation of Carter’s Family Child Care Home, Carter’s Early Learning Academy, LLC, and My Space and Early Learning Time, LLC.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Just many other small business owners, no it had not been a smooth road for me.
For the first time, I have had to figure out what it is like to manage and operate a brick-and-mortar small business. It started with creating my business plan from scratch to finding the perfect business location, and it was a relief when I was able to secure some financing for My Space and Early Learning Time.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next, you can tell us a bit more about your business?

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
My Space and Early Learning Time, LLC was birthed in the midst of the Covid-19 Crisis. It was during this life-changing crisis that it became apparent for our immediate need to fight and advocate more for early childhood education. It was during this time when most early learning facilities closed their doors to families due to their low level of preparedness to combat with the covid-19 pandemic.
My Space and Early Learning Time, LLC is the house to Seven (7) reasonably sized interactive learning spaces that caters to the unique needs and interests of our early learners. Our interactive learning spaces provides our early learners with a welcoming and immersive educational environment that keeps all children physically, intellectually, and socially-emotionally engaged.
We are able to give parents the peace of mind that the health and safety of their family is our top priority even whilst providing a platform that promotes and encourages family engagements on various levels.
