I, Deanna Lyon, will be your child's main provider. I have been babysitting since I was 9 years old. When I was 19, I became a professional nanny. I have cared for up to ten children at one time with ages raging from premature to 105. (At age 18, I worked at an assisted living facility as a CNA.)
My education has been geared toward mathematics and science. I have obtained credits from Gibson Technical, Missouri State University, Mira Costa College, Austin Community College, Johnson Community College, Red Cross and KDHE approved child care courses. I believe education is a life long process.
