Caring for children has been a passion for Shari since she was a little girl and she has turned her passion into a reality. Shari has been married to her husband Dan for 32 years, they have 4 children and 4 grandchildren. They enjoy spending time together as a family.
In the last year Shari has spent 50+ hours attending classes and trainings to expand her knowledge and education in child development. She is a part of the Oregon Registry and is at step 9.5 of the Oregon Center for Career Development at PSU.
To Shari, her daycare is about the children and giving them a safe and positive learning environment. Her focus is to make each child feel special and loved by praising their individual talents and qualities. At daycare, learning life skills, building friendships, problem solving, and critical thinking are intertwined throughout the daily activities.
