Almost home is owned by a registered nurse and former high school teacher, Toni Poling. Our staff is 100% certified in first aid, CPR, childhood illnesses and child abuse recognition. All of our preschool teachers hold a bachelor’s degree as do some of our toddler staff. Most of our infant & toddler caregivers are moms themselves. Our staff is chosen for their patience, love of children and sense of humor. Happy, healthy children receiving the best possible education is the very foundation of what we do.
