Ms. Avril

Academic Prep

With three grown children and two of my own grandchildren in my home daycare, I'm truly spoiled to have spent my life caring for little ones! I get such joy being surrounded by these kiddos and am so happy to be able to ease the minds of parents searching for safe and loving care of their children. I have 15 years of experience taking care of young children. I’m a Mom and previously, I worked in daycare centers, and most recently I have been running my own program. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is watching them learn and grow. I feel so fortunate to experience that every day and to share my skills and experience with families through my home-based child care program, where I focus on learning through play. I aim to create an environment that is nurturing and welcoming for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to sing and dance with them. I can't imagine spending my days any other way. I’m also proud to do this important work. That’s especially true when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn.

Ms. Teresa

Play-Based Learning

I have 25 years of experience taking care of young children. Previously, I worked in my home as a child care professional, and most recently I have been working as a nanny. For me, one of the best parts of working with children is that they start to show you their little personalities. I feel so fortunate to experience that every day and to share my skills and experience with families through my home-based child care program, where I focus on learning through play. I aim to create an environment that is nurturing and welcoming for the children I care about so much. So many parts of this job are fun, but I especially love to sing and dance with them. I can't imagine spending my days any other way. I’m also proud to do this important work. That’s especially true when I think about all the children I've helped grow and learn.
