Family Child Care Provider
New Jersey
Azizah Arline is a licensed home-based child care provider in Pennsauken, New Jersey. Azizah is a member of the Home Grown 2024 Insight Panel.

"The benefit with home-based is I can see your child grow from 0 to 6 when they leave here. Whereas in a child care center, they're going from class to class, so they're going to have different experiences from different teachers. Whereas I am one entity, so I am always with your child through the entire growth, and I can always make recommendations. I'm a mom, so I can see things that someone who's younger and really is just there for work, my eye is going to be different, because I'm an older mother and I'm actually invested in your child. Because when I see the fruit of my work, that makes me proud as well. I don't need the accolades from a parent. I can see it."
