Family owned & operated since 2005, Denise turned her love & passion for children into a career by opening one of the largest childcare centers in Homestead, FL. Her hard work and dedication was apparent in the community. Denise went the extra mile to assure the quality of services they provided and gained accreditation through APPLE and Gold Seal accreditation. She participated in programs for the betterment of staff and children.

Following in her Mother's footstep, she is now operating the facility and continues to do so with the children's safety, social emotional well-being and education being her focus.
