Bloomfield, NJ 07003 | (973) 618-8846

Hi and welcome! My name is Rose Lindor; I am a Registered Nurse with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing and certification in CPR & First Aid. I always had an innate desire to care for people and over time, this desire gravitated especially towards children. Over the past couple of years my heart has been yearning to provide a fun, loving, and healthy environment while challenging children’s learning abilities. As a mother of two beautiful girls, I understand how important it is to give children great care as well a structured learning development. My goal is to provide fundamental education and care for children and toddlers, with a motherly touch to the daycare system. My mission is to allow for parents/guardian to fulfill their goal with good hands and a warm heart, but also have the opportunity to accelerate their educational growth and learning capabilities. I am currently taking interviews, please message me to set up time. Bring the whole family, you won’t regret it. I look forward to hearing from you!
