 Meet The Owner

Ms. Tonna

My name is Iatonna Steed, Director, and Owner of The Children's House. At a young age, I knew I was highly interested in the education of children. Raised in Chicago, Illinois, I grew up taking care of children at the church I was raised in. I then moved to Texas and after graduating high school I began work at a Montessori School. I enrolled in college and earned my Child Development Associates degree and earned my Childcare Director Credentials as well. I worked as a director for 5 years and went to school for nursing at the same time. I worked at a hospital for 2 years and decided that I still wanted to work with children. So in 2019, I opened my own childcare center and have loved it ever since. When I am not taking care of babies I enjoy running, reading, and writing.

Director and Owner,

Iatonna Steed


All employees are background checked and Pediatric/Adult CPR and first aid certified.  All staff is trained in dealing with emergency situations. 

 Reviews from Happy Parents 

After a year at Tonnas, I couldn’t be happier with the level of care and education. I want to add as well that Tonna also communicates very well with me as the parent- providing updates on the day's activities and a review of the day's schedule when I pick up my child. She is also very transparent and allows me to come and feed my child as needed- this I appreciate most!
Oh, and her home is not chaotic! Even with toddlers, there aren't a million toys strewn about the place with kids running all amuck. It's organized and enriching to every age group. It's a peaceful environment even with a crying baby and four toddlers.
