She shares her motivation for opening her program, how she tried to structure a high quality experience for the children in her care, the unique value of family child care compared to center based care, and why, after 15 years of operating her program, she decided to close. She also provides information about her current position with the Career Development Center at the New York Early Childhood Professional Development Institute.
