My name is Merary Moreno. My family consists of my husband and 4 children. I have been married for 27 years, and I have a daughter and three sons. My story of the beginnings of child care is a story of perseverance, effort and above all, gratitude to God for all his goodness.
Before working with children, I worked in a vegetable packing company for 20 years. I always had the desire to work with children, but I didn’t know who could advise me in this area until one day my sister-in-law told me that they were giving classes in Spanish and decided to go look for information. In the 4C department they helped me and advised me on taking the classes and how to open my own daycare in 2018.
In a period of 7 months I was already opening my family day care. When I started I only had one child, for those 7 months, it was difficult, but I persevered, with the faith that more children would come to me. I began to prepare myself academically, and thanks to the TEACH program and the scholarships, I managed to finish a center administration credential in a period of one year. I continued studying and finished my associate’s degree in early education, as well as a preschool credential in 2020.
All the academic preparation helped me offer a better service in my daycare. I first started with 2 stars in the young star program rating and now I am at 5 stars. It is a very nice job to be able to work with children and families, and also to be able to reach goals and achieve purposes is a very satisfying job.
Let’s never stop dreaming, and persevere in all our goals, because in the end we will have the reward and it will be worth it.

My family has helped me and we have continued to make progress in expanding child care, and we began with the dream of opening a center. Now our dream came true because in 2023 we opened the center which is now located in Sheboygan County.
The figures are placed on the floor about a foot apart and the children are asked to jump from one figure to another. You can just say the colors or the geometric figure or both depending on the age of the child.
This activity helps children in the cognitive area (colors and figures), Health and development: Gross motor and likewise the social/emotional area because children learn that they have to wait to take turns.
