"Working in a childcare is a lot of responsibility. Parents trust us with the most valuable thing they have, which is their children. That's why I decided to work with Beanstalk. Their experience and support help me meet my goals as a provider. Through the constant supervision, guidance, and trust they give us, we can provide better care. The resources, materials, and opportunities that we have working with Beanstalk allow us to grow professionally, be better providers, and make our children happier."

- Jenifer S. Arizaga

"I joined the Beanstalk Family Child Care Home Education Network for their personal coaching and individual support to each provider and child in their network. Of course, their excellent rates and timely payments are also very important for self-employed people who rely on sustained income to grow their business of passion. DRDPs, assessments, observations, and monthly visits keep me in tune to promote quality child care; that's another benefit for me - having a coach, learning opportunities, and a personal teacher to consult with. Since I started working with Beanstalk I have always had full enrollment, which helps me stress less so that I can completely engage with my kids."

- Olga Sasevich

"I am a licensed daycare provider of over 30 years. I have been with Beanstalk for over 30 years. Beanstalk has been such a blessing to me and my daycare all these years. They have provided me with children, coaching & support, great pay rates, loaning of equipment, curriculum activities, and ideas. I know for a fact if it wasn't for Beanstalk I would not have been so successful all these years!"
