Hello! My name is Sonja Buckner. I have lived in the Harlem community for 40+ years, where I've raised my 4 children. I have been a licensed Child Care Provider since 1993 and have provided a loving and nurturing environment for children and families ever since. I am currently open and have available spaces for child care placement.
