FCC Provider of the Month – June

Jul 4, 2024
Written by:

What do you enjoy most about being an FCC Provider?
I enjoy the nonstop learning about caring for a child physically, emotionally, and mentally. I enjoy watching the children grow to meet milestones and helping the families better understand their child through resources within FCC, and from other providers. The best feeling is being a part of another family and working with parents with the same goal in mind; we want their child to not only be cared for, but to grow in a positive and safe environment in and out of childcare.


What are your interests/hobbies?
I love to design and make crafts for my FCC area or holidays crafts for my kiddos to take home to their families. I really love to inspire their creative minds. My favorite hobby would be videogames. I find it helpful to always find a way to escape to a new reality. Being a provider can be a demanding job at times, but finding time to unwind and reset is very important.


What advice do you have for new providers/those interested in being FCC Providers?
Please reach out to other providers. Do not be afraid to ask for help or advice about anything. The Minot AFB FCC community is supportive of each other, and I highly encourage you to find another provider to do play dates, holiday crafts or parties. They help you stay motivated with the job itself. It is also very important to take some time for yourself daily to stay mentally healthy. Always remember how important you are to each child and communicate daily with families with any concerns or accomplishments! Never be afraid to speak up about anything at all and a second opinion can help any situation immensely.


“A successful daycare is like a second home, where children feel secure, loved, and encouraged to learn and grow.” -Unknown
