I live in East Greenwich and I have two daughters, one in high school and one who is about to turn four years old. As a parent, it is very difficult to find someone that you can trust to take care of your children, especially when they’re really young, and in-home child care providers do just that for families throughout the state.
My child care provider Adriana, who runs her business out of West Warwick, has become a part of our family. Not only does my daughter love going there, she also learns so much from Adrianna’s curriculum and she has the chance to socialize with other children her own age.
I have years of experience working as a teacher’s assistant for special needs children, and I know how important individualized care is to help children meet their potential. Adriana provides this care for my child and others and should be able to use her experience and expertise in helping shape how the child care assistance program operates.
Parents in Rhode Island need reliable, flexible, quality and affordable child care for their children, and providers and parents both deserve to have a voice in the system and how it operates.
