My name is Leia and I lived in a little town here in California called Dixon. At the time, I had just quit my job of almost 10 years, to go back to school. To make good use of my time, I started volunteering at the daycare where my kids had attended while I was working previously, It was very shortly after I starting working with the daycare, that I realized this would be my chosen career. It is such a privilege to be given the responsibility of caring for these little ones. It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to play such a major role in their development, and their lives.
So I began my plans to have my own home daycare. I took some Early Childhood Education courses at the local Community College to learn more about developmental stages in children. I took all the necessary steps to become a licensed Child Care Provider in the state of California.
The final step was to buy a home. That is what brought me to Lodi. I grew up in Galt, the next town over, so I was already familiar with the area. I knew Lodi would be a great place to raise my children, and a great community to be a part of when opening my business.
My favorite things in this world are the little munchkins who call me Mama. I have a 9 year old, a 5 year old, and a 2 year old. I believe they are where my passion for Child Care comes from. I know how I want my own children treated, taught, and cared for when I am not with them. My desire is to pass that along to those I have the privilege of having in my care.
