Hi all! My name is Darlene. I would like to welcome you to my shop and to say thanks for visiting.

Let me tell you a little about myself! I am a graduate of Youngstown State University and have my degree in early childhood education and development. I have been in the field for 18 years. I am currently a Professional Development Specialist with the Council for Professional Recognition. My job is to verify Child Development Credential (CDA) candidates. I also work with children who need extra opportunity in reading and math.

When I started creating these activities, it was because I could not afford to order them out of the expensive catalogs that come around. I now create them for childcare facilities, teachers, and homeschool parents. When I complete a verification visit for a CDA candidate, I give a thank you gift to facility for allowing me into their center as well as give the candidate $100 of activities for their classroom.

I also give away several swag bags every month. If you are interested in receiving some free samples, go to my contact us page and email me with your address, and age group you prefer and they will be in the mail (usually within 48 hrs). Thanks for visiting! There will be more posts to come!!!!
