I founded this company with the mission to create a safe and nurturing environment for all children to grow and thrive in.  As a parent of 3 myself, I understand the strong desire of a parent to know that their children are well cared for and given the opportunity to develop to their full potential.  I aim to provide this high quality care at a price that parents can afford, and offer the flexibility that goes along with real life schedule changes.
