Faculty & Staff

It takes a special person to work with children, and at Little People’s Place we have strict requirements for those interested in joining our team and we have more accumulated years of experience than any other center in Carroll County.
All Little People’s Place teachers and caregivers are trained and certified in early childhood development, and all primary teachers hold a bachelor’s degree in education.

Mary Burke opened our childcare facility in 1974 and has since completed her Master’s Degree in Counseling. She is the CEO and story teller at L.P.P. Her vision has been the driving force behind the center’s success and her creativity and knowledge has helped us remain a leader in Westminster. L.P.P. is her dream come true and she hopes to never stop dreaming.

Stephanie Boggs was hired in 2003. She has a B.S. degree in Early Childhood Leadership and Education. She is currently the director and provides a safe and nurturing environment for the children, enjoys giving personal tours to families, and supporting her amazing staff. She is responsible for maintaining Maryland EXCELS and pursuing Maryland State Accreditation.

Cindy Plantholt was hired in 1995 as our office manager. Her expertise creates and maintains a constant and dependable business atmosphere that guarantees smooth sailing for children, parents, and staff.

Marianne Cross was hired in 1984. She is our assistant director that aides in providing a loving, safe, and fun-filled environment enjoyed daily by children, families, and staff.

All of our teachers are trained in CPR, first aid, and medication administration. Each teacher also holds a current Maryland Credential Certificate that is based on the teachers education, experience, and training.
