Our Story

The story of Hooked on Books Childcare started with family, as many great origin stories do. Yolanda Massey, once an interior designer by trade, realized her passion for child development early in life. While studying to become an interior designer, she spent her extracurricular hours with her niece and nephew, teaching them key school preparedness before they began kindergarten. 

That was nearly twenty years ago. Since then, Yolanda has expanded her certifications, expertise, and business to dedicate her life to caring for children ages six weeks to five years. Now, a seasoned childcare expert, Yolanda has a proven track record of preparing children with the essential knowledge and skills they need to feel comfortable and ready to enter school. 


Philosophy & Mission

We believe every child should have access to quality care and enrichment. We believe in the formative power of creative exploration, community building, and individualized attention.

What Our Families are Saying

Yolanda is very gifted with children and has become a crucial figure in my child’s life.

At only the age of two, my child is completely toilet trained, knows her ABCs, can count to twenty and can readily identify her colors. This is, in part, due to the presence of these things in the curriculum they interact with every day at Hooked on Books Childcare.

Yolanda is very supportive with parents, as well. When she sees an area of growth, she will readily provide support and strategies to help the child.
