Where Children Learn, Grow and Explore

The Childcare Provider

Although I'm not their mother,

I care for them each day.

I cuddle, sing and read to them,

and watch them as they play.


I see each new accomplishment

and help them grow and learn,

I understand their language

and I listen with concern.


They come to me for comfort

and I kiss away their tears.

They proudly show their work to me,

I give the loudest cheers!


No, I am not their mother,

but my role is just as strong.

I nurture them and keep them safe,

though maybe not for long.


I know someday the time may come,

when we will have to part,

but I know each child I've cared for

is forever in my heart!
