Why choose us?!
Being a single mother of three once Candice Scales knew all too well the struggles that came along with not only being a single mother, but finding great quality, safe and affordable childcare alternative. 

With the help of her team Candice Scales began Guilford County Youth Academy, L.L.C. in 2021, because she couldn’t find a suitable option for her family’s needs.  She wanted something more than just "childcare" for her family. Candice wanted a place where her children can just go and be themselves in a judgement free zone. She wanted her children to be apart of a organization that would make them feel like they belonged. So she created Guilford County Youth "GCYA" a place where children can just be kids, do things that they would like to do along with getting enrichment beyond the classroom setting.  



Founded in 2010 by Candice Scales and her siblings Ronnie and John Staton, the Staton Family Foundation, Inc. a nonprofit organization. Candice Staton Scales is the CEO of the foundation that is currently active in the community since 2017. Together they host a variety of events annually including but not limited to Feeding the Homeless, Back to School Supply Drives and Christmas Toy Drives at local recreational centers to name a few. The foundation was able to serve over 200 plus children and youth. She also works as a Library Associate with the City of Greensboro Public Library hosting an array of outreach programs for the community. Candice currently holds her degree of Science in Criminal Justice from Strayer University.
