Me & My Family

Marina Valenzuela

Owner/Family Child Care Provider

I am a licensed family child care provider.  I began in childcare as a babysitter when I was young and continued on throughout high school.  After high school I worked as a nanny for several years.    


I continued to care for children in my spare time while I worked in different jobs throughout my early adulthood.  Through the support of my family (and wonderful family child care provider that was caring for my own daughter at that time) I obtained my child care license in March of 2010. .  I feel privileged that I am able to work and do something that I have always loved!


I have more than 180 hours of training through classes, workshops and courses in early childhood development and topics related to family childcare.  I enjoy the company of children.  This is not a job, this is my career and my profession.
