Meet Candace

Hello! My name is Candace Best and I have 10 years of experience in childcare. Taking care of children is a passion passed down to me from my mother. I have watched and assisted her growing up in her positions a day care owner, sunday, and preschool teacher. Since I was 16, I have babysat for over 10 families for children ranging from babies to middle school age children. In addition, I have worked as a tutor, after school program coordinator, tutor, in home behavior specialist, and eventually classroom teacher for children with special needs.
