Brittanie

MommyDazzle® Mom

Brittanie is a homeschooling mom who has a degree in child development as well as Montessori training. She runs a small preschool, enjoys making nutritious grain-free meals, and never passes up an opportunity to see a play or musical at the Straz.

When working with children, she enjoys reinforcing a love of reading and encouraging imaginative play. As an educator, Brittanie understands that childcare is so much more than managing physical needs for children while their parents are out of the home.

It’s about honoring and encouraging each child’s uniqueness, individuality, and developmental journey. She hopes to give parents peace of mind that their children are not only treated with kindness and respect, but are engaged in developmentally appropriate activities while she is caring for them.
