Rebecca is an empty nester who raised 4 children and has two grandchildren, one of which she provided care for during their first year while her daughter worked.  Rebecca also has experience in a daycare setting and as a babysitter.  She is a mom and homemaker at heart which is why she loves her job as a childcare provider!  One of her references said, “She has a passion for children and spends time making lesson plans for them to do together as well. We love her and recommend her highly.”
