“The Little People Day Care owned by Ms. Dalphia Murphy was the first day care for both of my daughters, Alexis (25) & Kelsey (23) Perry. Alexis was one of the first when the daycare started. Dalphia was also our next door neighbor, so my husband and I knew her for years before she opened the day care. We were thrilled when she told us she was opening it because we knew Alexis would receive excellent care (and of course both she and Kelsey did).
The Little People Day Care was part of the starting foundation for the rest of Alexis’ and Kelsey’s live, and they have both grown into very wonderful, successful young women.
Alexis ran track and was a cheerleader starting in middle school. She competed in both within and outside of school. She was very successful in both becoming state champion in the hurdles, long jump, and high jump as well as being on the varsity cheerleading team starting her freshman year and becoming captain. Alexis went to NC State on a full track scholarship and became the captain of the women’s track team her sophomore year. She was also blessed to have qualified for the 2016 track & field Olympic trials and was an All-American NCAA athlete. After graduating from NC State with awards for the Women’s MVP, Alexis pursued a professional track career, but due to a knee problem, she had to cut short her professional goal. It was at this time that Alexis decided she wanted to give back to her community and she decided to pursue a career in the non-profit world. Alexis is currently the Business Operations Manager at non-profit organization and is pursuing her Masters of Public Administration.
Kelsey also ran track and was on the varsity cheerleading team (also starting in middle school), and competed in both in and outside of school. She also had a very successful track career and was also a high school cheerleading caption and was also Homecoming Queen her senior year. In high school Kelsey’s passion was in theatre where she was the stage manager for the school’s production of Hair Spray. Kelsey also had a passion for cheerleading and caring for children, so she put them both together and is now a cheerleading coach. Kelsey graduated with honors with a degree in Family & Consumer Sciences. To continue to be able to help children, Kelsey is pursuing a double degree with a Masters in Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling. Upon graduation, Kelsey plans to become a child psychologist.
Both Alexis and Kelsey are members of the illustrious Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated following in their mother’s footsteps. They both still think very fondly of their start at the Little People Daycare.”
Have a great day!!
