​I'm Bobbie a new mother of one crazy little guy.  I'm been working with Lauren for over 4 years while attending CCCC to obtain an associates degree in Early Childhood Education. I have 5+ years of experience working in Licensed Child care in NC.  I have almost completed my degree and plan to continue my education specializing in special needs children.  I have enjoyed watching so many children grow in my care and can't wait to meet more little ones each year.
