In addition to my daycare, I enjoy being the owner of an awesome and very busy daycare email list, Provider's Playground, with a current membership of over 700 Child Care Providers, Preschool Teachers, Center employees and Directors from around the world (though mainly the US and Canada).
My website, StepByStepcc.com is an extension of my daily work as a Professional Child Care Provider. I have been in the childcare business for over 17 years and have a lot of experience and access to much more through Provider's Playground. I am in a position to be able to share this knowledge with others, through StepByStepcc.com. I feel if we, as providers, band together and learn how to provide quality daycare for families, that in turn our profession will become one which is respected. Daycare isn't often a respected profession, unfortunately. There was one person in my life who really admired the work I do. I have dedicated StepByStepcc.com to my dad, who passed away from cancer in 1997.
I have a second at-home business, Jana's Web Design where I teach HTML, do website design, and other publishing-based business. At present, due to time constraints, I'm limiting this business to html teaching. If interested I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Outside of work, my interests lie in the paranormal, especially the works done by Sylvia Browne. I like to read, go to the beach/lake in the summer, out to dinners, movies, do scrapbooking, and attend various local events and attractions. Country decor and country music are my favorites.
Shows on TV I can be found watching include Lost, American Idol, Dr. Phil, Good Morning America, Clean House, Antiques Roadshow, and other various documentary type shows. I also like a lot of the Lifetime TV movies.
I have 4 children of my own and a 2 year old grandson. You can read my Blog here.
