Care Bear Educare

I was a Licensed Daycare Provider in La Crosse, Wisconsin starting February 1999 and had been certified for 5 months prior. I closed my doors in February 2015.

I have always liked working with children, been a Foster Mom here in La Crosse for 4 years, and a Foster Mom to "hard-to-handle" Teens for 3 years in Salt Lake City, UT and have had my first two years of schooling in Child Psychology and I have my Infant and Toddler Credential

My husband Donny has been licensed alongside me and had participated in the care of the children since May 2002. My son David and his wife Amanda were my Substitutes.

Here are some pictures of the kids that have been in my care and some of the activities we have done.
