Early Education Professionals are Heroes. We are proud to spotlight Focus Pointe Learning Academy.

Viranda Deshields (Mrs. V) is the owner of Focus Pointe Learning Academy in Fayetteville. Her background includes working with special needs children and teaching kindergarten. As a teacher, working with children and families gave Viranda a lot of joy, but she felt she could make a greater impact as a private provider. This was proven when she opened a school-age program in 2010. Nine years later, in November 2019, she opened Focus Pointe Learning Academy.

Focus Pointe Learning Academy’s mission is to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing environment that enhances the development of each child. Viranda and her staff are helping to teach parents how to teach their own children. Together they see the growth of the children and recognize that their collective influence has shaped that growth. They are helping to shape model citizens of the world.

Encouragement and wisdom from Viranda include: 

Child care is an absolutely rewarding business because you have the opportunity to help so many children grow and learn.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
