My whole life, I’ve been involved with children, babysitting and being super involved with all the little people I grew up with. That passion sparked my interest in working with children, and have now worked in the field for 3.5 years. I worked at two previous daycares before coming to work at A&D where I felt so put down that I wasn’t sure I wanted to continue working in the field as a career. A&D has been the most welcoming establishment that I have ever worked in. The open door policy with the owner and director makes me feel like my opinions and questions matter and are taken seriously. I love the staff that I work with, and feel as though we are a little family, encouraging each other and growing together. The children melt my heart, and I love being able to watch them develop, always learning through their play. I’ve been working at A&D for just shy of 2 years now, and I’m proud to brag about it!
