Loretta Sampson

Words from Loretta on her child care provider experience, "I began child care in Kansas 34 years ago after working as an engineer for 5 1/2 years. My oldest daughter was 10 months old at that time, and 1 1/2 years later, my second daughter was born. I did child care in Nebraska and Indiana before moving to Colorado 25 years ago.  I joined JCCCA right after getting my license and loved going to the meetings. In 1997 I joined the board as benefits coordinator and then in 1999 I became secretary. I have made so many friends being a part of JCCCA, several of which were on the board. I know it helped me become more professional as a childcare provider. 

Later I became part of the committee which worked to create the Experienced Child Care License, and I later testified during committee meetings so the License would be enacted . About 10 years ago I served on the Rules and Regulations review committee representing family child care providers. These were events that stretched my growth!  Plus, I enjoyed organizing my wonderful volunteers for the Craft Xtravaganza for 23 years also. 

Child Care has been a big part of my life and the life of my family. I officially retired the summer of 2020, and my husband John and I miss it! John especially misses gardening with the kids, and I miss the funny things they did and said all day long--and of the hugs!! We are now moving into our next phase of life as grandparents!"

Congratulations Loretta!
