I started my home daycare in 1989, after having our first daughter. We were not able to find the home
environment and quality of daycare we were looking for, so  with the support of my husband I opened our
home to other families looking for the same quality of daycare that we were. I have been blessed to meet
many wonderful families during the last 25 years, and I've been able to keep in contact with many of them
throughout the years. I am hoping to meet many new families for at least the next 20 years. Being able to
watch wonderful children allowed us to have four of our own children (ranging from 9yrs to 20 yrs). My own
children have become many of my daycare children's "extended siblings." It is important to me that I provide
the same quality Licensed Home Daycare that we could not find when we first became parents 25 years
ago. I would welcome the opportunity for my family to become part of your extended family.
