As founder & director of Smart Starters Academy, FCCLH, I would like to personally take the time to thank you for visiting our parent and kid friendly website and considering SSA as a place for your child to learn, grow, and develop through the safe and nurturing environment of a caring home daycare.
My desire is to devote my energies, experiences, passion, formal childcare training and education in helping to shape, foster and prepare the most impressionable minds on earth - the little people! As we know, there's no other person that can take the place of a loving parent, I do believe as a provider and parental-partner in your child's development, I gladly take on the responsibility to support and promote your child's most delicate and important years of their precious growing life.
So as you browse through this website, place your mind at ease knowing that this is a state licensed provider that's equipped with all of the necessities to operate a safe and pleasant home daycare. With a personable approach, comforting home environment, I am excited and ready to care for your little one. There's nothing better than a home-like atmosphere for your infant or toddler to learn and grow with other inquiring minds. Welcome to the world of the little people!
Enjoy the site and I hope to see you and your little one very soon. Make it a Great Day!
