Chaeli Moyer

Chaeli Moyer has been appointed director of the nonprofit Ocracoke Child Care. Hailing from Ohio, she is completing a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Akron. She brings extensive experience in early childhood education and non-profit administration. She has been an infant, pre-k and kindergarten teacher; managed a home-based, family-centered child care center and has worked in policy planning on initiatives supporting families with young children.


Her primary goal is to ensure the short- and long-term financial sustainability of the center. She loves children, loves Ocracoke, and can’t imagine a better place to be than Ocracoke Child Care.


“My hope is to engage everyone here – and many who visit — in holding the center as the jewel of the island,” she said. “It is the first home-away-from-home for our babies and toddlers. It enables parents of young children to support their families and contribute the economic functioning of the island.  We love Ocracoke Child Care, and want it to be here for generations to come!”
