"I have over 10 years of experience in child care. Before I became the Lead Teacher for the Waddler Room I was in the Infant Room. Singing, reading, lego and outdoor play are a few things we do to help stimulate development. My favorite books are Brown Bear and Wheels on the Bus. One of my favorite training activities to participate in is Filling the Bucket."

Rocio Z: Classroom Teacher

"I have over 20 years of child care experience and love what I do! I love being able to make a positive impact in a child's life and do my best to make sure every child feels safe and accepted. Consistency and routine are very important, children adjust easier and feel more comfortable when they know what's next. We do a lot of theme related crafts, singing, painting, coloring, puzzles and sensory activities. I like to be silly, make things fun and keep good communication with parents on a daily basis. I'm from California and fluent in English and Spanish. I've been married for 25 years, have 3 daughters and 1 grandson."
