Wow!! I just had to tell you...this is the best site I have ever seen for home daycare providers. I have been doing this since 2004 and often look things up online to help me improve my business, but this is the best by far. THANK YOU for the wonderful stuff here! I am so pleased. I will definitely be implementing what I've found here into my program.
