20 yrs of experience

My name is Carolyn Fridley I am a 53 year old wife and mother of 2 grown daughter. I was an owner and operator of a Home daycare center for about 20 years. My husband was in the Navy and when we first got married we only had on car and he used it to get back and forth to work so I decided to do daycare to bring in money until we could afford another car, well in the mean time I was t asking in more children and also got pregnant along came our daughters and I decided I didnt want to leave them to go out of the house and work and my husband was deploying for 6 months so I just continued to do daycare it became my 24/7 job. I cared for mostly military children and some I would have for weeks or months at a time because some of the parents were either single or both parents were military and would deploy at th ed same time. Most of the children became part of my family. I eventually hired several girls to help with the large amount of children I cared for. My daughter literally grew up helping with the children I cared for. Over the 20 years I figured I cared for about 300 children.
