Family/BusinessMy husband’s name is Nathan and we have two boys Corben (9) and JJ (3). I’ve been a licensed family child care provider since September 2016, and I participate in the Parent Aware program and have earned a 4-star rating for my child care program.
Training InstructorIn addition to running my child care program, I recently received my Trainer 1 certification, which allows me to train other child care providers around the State. I’m currently conducting trainings in Fairmont and hope to see you in one of my classes!
Professional DevelopmentI’m a recipient of the T.E.A.C.H. scholarship program which helped me to return to college to earn my Associated Degree in Early Childhood Education. I’m currently on track to get my BA in Education next May using this same scholarship. The T.E.A.C.H. program has been terrific – I’d be happy to talk with you further about it if you’d like to learn more.
ServiceI’ve had the opportunity to serve on statewide boards and committees that help to advocate for the child care field.• I’m the current treasurer of the Minnesota Child Care Provider Information Network (MCCPIN), a statewide association that represents family child care providers around the State.• From 2019 to 2021 I served as a member of the Minnesota Legislature’s Child Care Task Force.If serving on a board or committee sounds interesting to you, please reach out. I can work with you to find an opportunity to get you involved!
My role is to be a supportive resource for people considering child care as a career – and for Martin County’s licensed family child care providers. You’ll be hearing more from me in the coming weeks. In the meantime if I can be helpful please don’t hesitate to contact me! - Samsamantha@prospermc.com
