My name is Kirstin Czarnota and my husband, Brian, and I have lived in Cottage Grove for the past 12 years. I have always had a passion for interacting with and teaching children. I have worked as a nanny as well as a teacher's assistant. The idea of opening a daycare has been a dream of mine and after my son, Jacob, was born 9 years ago I knew it needed to be a reality. I also have a stepson, Logan, that is 16 years old. We added to our family a beautiful girl Olivia who is now 6. I am looking forward to the opportunity to stay at home with my children as well as the chance to work with other young children.
I am very honest, open, and easy to communicate with. If a problem arises I want you to feel able to approach me. I understand that communication is key.
My home is conveniently located on the northeast side of Cottage Grove bordering Woodbury.
I believe it is important to have a quality structured environment for the care of your child. A place to learn and play. I hope that my home is the place where your child can grow and learn.
