Tonya does an excellent job teaching and showing you what it is like to have and run a daycare. Very informative and personally for me an inspiring way to run a self business.
A few questions for Tonya. Could you make an episode of how you got your daycare running from the start? What were the struggles? What are the positives of running a daycare? And what advice would you give to someone who would like to start one?
Thanks a bunch!
Thank you for being the voice and ears of daycare providers. You are very very knowledgeable and you are relatable. You understand our daily struggles - you help us go through the highs and lows. Keep producing, keep inspiring and may your cup of knowledge keep overflowing

Thank you for existing. I’m a center-based provider in the District of Columbia and it’s very helpful knowing I am not alone in what I go through daily. Please discuss ways in handling parents’ concerns especially if it doesn’t coincides with daycare policy. Thanks!
