Mr. Ed. is the husband of Miss Pat. Ed is First Assistant and co owner. Ed retired from driving truck in 2001 upon moving to Elk Grove. They had relocated from San Jose to Elk Grove and continued the Child Care/ Preschool. At that time Ed decided to be a partner in the business. Ed has been a great asset. The kids love him and it gives the children a balance of both male and female influences. The parents enjoy having Mr. Ed involved with the children. Ed is very experienced and can handle just about anything that comes along. Doing child care is a far cry from driving truck but the rewards are greater working with children. Ed is the person who chases the kids, gets on the floor with them and thinks like they do. Whenever a new child starts and has a hard time during transition it's Mr. Ed that wins the child over and helps him settle in.
