Annie's story

Being raised by a single parent with 3 brothers and 1 sister was not easy. We were not considered wealthy, actually, we had a lot of struggles. As I got older, I realized that I had a special place in my heart for children. At the age of 12, I started babysitting for my mother’s friends. Babysitting had a great impact on where I am today. Today, I have my own daycare and I currently care for 6 children that I love dearly and it's quite obvious they love me because each morning they give me a big hug. I take this role and responsibility very seriously and consider it a blessing to have this opportunity. I believe that every child is unique and special. My mission is to provide a warm and caring environment that expresses joy and love as I provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere on a daily basis. I understand that a peaceful and happy place for children is created through a caring, positive, and affirming atmosphere.
