Before I become a child care provider I had different beliefs and ideas about children and what being a provider meant. As I worked with more children, and sought out more education and training, I developed a new appreciation for the role of provider. I have been providing professional home-based daycare for +5 years, and I love working with kids every day. Being a child care provider has taught me so many things that have helped me be an even better mother to my own two kids.
I believe each child is unique and special to the world. I help children by believing in them as capable individuals. I believe in a world where people learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us, as the core of what makes life so fascinating. I believe that an early childhood teacher impacts the learning experience of the young children entrusted to his or her care, and the learning environment provided is crucial. I believe a high quality early childhood program, that provides a safe and nurturing environment as a foundation for exploration and learning, is critical for the child's future life.
