Myrtle Avenue Center

Myrtle Avenue Center

at Linden Park Neighborhood Early Childhood Education Center
Located in the heart of the Linden community, our Myrtle Avenue Center has been open since October of 2016. We enroll children ages 4 years through 5 years of age. This center is the result of a partnership with Columbus City Schools and the Child Development Council of Franklin County, Inc.
Center Director: Teaira Gamble

Teaira has served as Myrtle Avenue Center Director since September 2016. Before becoming the director at our Linden site, Teaira spent two years as the early child care director at Central Community House. Teaira received her Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Studies from Union Institute and University so that she could focus on the issues of children and families. She loves being an advocate for children.

Outside of work, Teaira is currently seeking a certification to become a foster parent. She also runs a training organization that helps other centers to attain higher Step-up to Quality ratings, provide Ohio-approved trainings, and mentors teachers in early childhood education.
