Child Care Credentials - Amy's WI Registry Certificate

Child Care Provider Credentials

Not everyone can be a child care provider; it takes someone with special qualities to spend all day, every day, with young children. I've worked hard to gain the skills I need to provide quality care and education for your child.

Star of the Region Award

In 2011 I was selected as the first recipient of the Wisconsin Family Child Care Association "Star of the Region" award for Region 9. This award is presented to just one family child care provider in each region for "demonstrating your commitment to children, families, and quality care."
