Amanda affectionately refers to Mirjana as "teacher," an appropriate name given that Mirjana's home is filled with not only fun but educational activities and Amanda is learning while I am at work thanks to Mirjana.
Because Mirjana's day care is small, Amanda receives a lot of individualized, personalized attention, which is great.
While many kids hate going to day care, that's definitely not the case with Amanda. She really enjoys going, actually looks forward to it, and it's a struggle to get her to leave!
Mirjana takes a number of pictures with her iPhone and sends them to us, which we really enjoy and forward to family.
It is very clear to me that Mirjana loves children and I like that her degree is in childhood development. Mirjana is very friendly, flexible and just an absolute joy and pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for day care.
