We are a women-owned small business in Montgomery County, serving the DC Metro Area. Among us, we span 3 different decades of life, come from 2 different religions, and we sent our own children to a variety of preschool and school settings including local childcare centers, religiously-affiliated programs, Montessori, parent coop nursery schools, public schools and private schools. We each have different professional disciplines and areas of expertise, we live in different parts of the county, we were educated in and hail from different parts of the United States, and we bring a wide variety of professional experiences to our work with families and early education teachers and staff. We look forward to partnering with you!
