Family Child Care Provider
Diane is a licensed family child care provider and President of Quality Influential Professionals.

“Providers often feel isolated and unappreciated, now they can call us or they can call each other, and we start with the question, How can I help? We offer information, but more importantly, we offer encouragement and validation, because this work is hard, and providers need to know that it’s okay to seek help and also that as professionals they deserve support and a circle of colleagues to hold them up.”
