- Bonnie Depermentier – Owner/Director ” To improve is to change, to be perfect is to change often.” Welcome, my name is Bonnie DePermentier and I am the co-owner (with my husband Jim) and director of All My Children Learning Center in Souderton, PA. AMC was founded January 5, 1983. I have three grown children, Jessica, Justin, and Jared who I am so proud of as they further their education. Jim and I live in Skippack, PA with our dog Kanye. I am so thankful for a great family who has supported me as I operated my schools. All My Children started out as a group home (caring for 12 children) to operating 3 centers; AMC Franconia, the former The Young and the Restless in Souderton, and the Bold and the Beautiful in Perkasie. AMC is like a soap opera each day. I have 33 years working with children. I have my B.S. in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from Mansfield University and have over 300 hours of training! I have also completed the Director Credentials courses. Being in education you become a life-long learner…I just completed my Child Care Health Advocate certification that will allow me to assist my AMC families with any health issues that may arise with their child. All My Children Learning Center is an STAR-4 site mandated by the Keystone STARS program. I love coming to work each day watching the children grow and learn. I wish you can see the excitement in their eyes when they learn something new or the important work they do as they play with their friends and teachers. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your child’s early years.
- Jim Depermentier – Owner
Hello! My name is Jim DePermentier (aka: Mr. Jim to the kids) and the other proud “co-owner” of All My Children Learning Center! Along with Bonnie I’m proud to have raised 3 awesome children; Jessica, Justin, and Jared, all of whom got their start here at AMC. I’m a graduate of Temple University with a B.S. Degree in Business Administration and Accounting. I’m also a current licensed Certified Public Accountant. I previously worked as a controller for a nationally known candy manufacturer and for a public relations firm in Center City, Philadelphia. The best decision I ever made was leaving the business corporate world to help my amazing wife and a business partner build upon and expand an already successful child care business. I love seeing the excitement on the faces of the children when they have accomplished something together. My main goal each day is to ensure that our staff is prepared with all of the essentials necessary to provide each child with an amazing day!

Hi! My name is Monica. I have formally been working with children for two years, primarily with teenagers so working with infants is a nice change of pace. There is a huge difference, obviously, but it is nice to be able to do a little more nurturing.

For ten of those years, I also directed our local day camp where we had 150 girls enrolled each year. I have also spent time volunteering in my daughter’s schools over the years. My husband and I have been married for 23 years and we have lived in Hatfield for 18 years. We have two daughters. Alana and Miranda, who are both in college. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of your little ones!

I love the 2’s especially because you never know what they are going to say or do next. My room is always colorful and inviting to allow the children to feel a sense of comfort and care when they get to school in the morning. I love sign-language and use it throughout the entire day in my classroom. The children love learning sign-language and sharing what they learn with their parents.
