Little Munckins Childcare

Miranda has been caring for children for the last 7 years and has owned and operated her licensed home for the last 3 years. During this time, Miranda was able to achieve her CDA. She has felt that participating in Paths to QUALITY has helped her out in knowing how to improve the quality of care in her home child care. Paths to QUALITY has shown her the value and impact of how children learn, room arrangement, the importance of schedules and routines and has even shown her how to connect with the families she works with. Congratulations Miranda!
