Hi 🙂 I am Miss Shelly ! I have been a leader with Home Sweet Home for over 7 years. I look forward to more growth in the coming years. I have a 4 year old son named Jace. I am a Brooklyn Native but started my career in Manhattan working in Fashion before transitioning to child-care. I love creating bonds with the children in my program, teaching them how to try new foods, doing our flashcard drills and story time parties! I also try my best to write all of your daily recaps so you have a clear understanding of what your Childs day consisted of. I look forward to meeting you and helping you transition into our daycare community!!
