“How can we express all that Joan has given our children and family? Her guidance, love, and passion is evident in their love for her. Not only does she have immeasurable patience, Joan also has a love for each of the children that she cares for. It doesn’t matter that she isn’t in a classroom, she “teaches” all of the children that come through her care. We are so fortunate to have her in our children’s lives!!”
