|Welcome! My name is Mrs. Darlene. I have been
teaching children for over 15 years in both private and
public schools. My licensed home childcare has been open
since Oct. 2005. I am a certified and state licensed
Preschool and Elementary School Teacher, Discovery Toys
Educational Representative, Young Living Essential Oil
Educator and Mother.
I love helping children discover the world around them
through exploration and play, learning skills that they will
use in school and throughout their life.
