Raechel O’Neal Coats – Director

Raechel O’Neal Coats has been employed with Friends Child Care Center since 1990.  She has served as Director since 2008 and is so proud that her three now adult daughters were able to benefit tremendously from their preschool experience at FCCC. Raechel is passionately and actively engaged in advocacy work for children and families through public speaking, community engagement and committee work.


Susan Charleston – Bookkeeper

Susan Charleston joined FCCC in January of 2005 and has been keeping the books ever since.  She studied History in school, is a member of the Women’s Committee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and spends some of her down-time in a pottery studio in Fairmount.  She likes being involved with a not-for-profit child care center and finds the environment decidedly more pleasant than most of the other businesses with which she is associated.
