Where girls read for fun
During this month's book club, we became child care experts!We had a crash course on how to operate a day care center while participating in a "baby changing" relay race to learn about the ins and outs of taking care of a baby while having a blast. Our October read is Gabby Duran and the Unsittables by Elise Allen, a book that weaves together hilariously fun themes about babysitting and childcare.
Our October 2017 progresssionista is Kimberly Baker Waldon, owner of Nurturing Nest-- a child care center in Detroit. She has an amazing journey from building her at-home daycare into a fully functioning childcare center on the city's westside. She shared many amazing tips and steps to taking care of children and showed girls that they too can have a future in childcare from babysitting to being an childcare owner like herself!
