I have been a licensed family daycare provider in the state of CT since 1993. I recently obtained my group daycare license, which allows me to take in more children with a staff member. I’ve always felt that I am happiest with a house full of children so, here I am!
I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education and I am currently pursuing my Bachelors Degree part time. I also run a preschool here and the kids are always busy. That’s how I got the name Busy Day!
I am CPR/FA certified and I regularly take classes to further my knowledge in the Early Childhood field. I believe you are never too old to learn more.

I have been married to Dan since 1987 and my oldest son Ray was born in 1989, Nick in 1992 and Mathew in 1998. They all grew up with my daycare and think nothing of having a house full of kids.
Before opening my family daycare I worked in two centers. While centers are nice, I prefer family daycare. It allowed me to always be home with my own children when they were younger and it allows me to give my daycare children more one on one.
I have belonged to many organizations in the past and am currently a member of the Pre-K / Kindergarten coalition where we collaborate with the kindergarten teachers in town. We work together to make the 4 year old preschoolers transition into kindergarten a smooth one. We also have seminars, we meet monthly and much more.
