Carolina is a Family, Friend and Neighbor Provider in Phoenix, Arizona. Carolina shares how her families view her as an extension of their own and she supports them by staying open during nontraditional hours.

"They choose me because I’m flexible and they trust me. I recently changed my hours to accommodate a couple of children whose moms are cleaning houses in the evenings and on Saturday mornings. I don’t charge more after 6 p.m. unless they come to pick up later than we agreed on.”
