Well I had just had my daughter and in just 3 months i alredy had to return to work. Being a single parent here with no family in the same city as me, I was faced with the delima of placing my new born in (I had no idea where to start) a strangers arms to take care of daily. It literally bought tears to my eyes as i felt so hopeless as to what would happen next. After seeking help in the community to find the appropriate resources I was directed to the PATCH office in wainaku. I immediatly felt the load lifted as I wus sitting there being assured that ALL Child Care Providers are licenced by PATCH have gone through the health education & Training process. Then wen she printed out a list of providers for me to call & interview, I wuz blown away by the pages & pages of Providers to choose from. Going to that office that day had changed my perspective of my situation completly. I had hope again, I was restored with the faith that I could find safe, resonable, affordable child care. I dont know what I would have dont were it not for PATCH to be there. I also inquire about the courses needed to take to be a licensed child care provider myself, for that has always been a passion for me.
Sincerely, I. K. Derouin
