Penny Polston is our Provider of the Month for June 2021! Penny was nominated by a few licensed providers in the zip codes which she volunteers as a Referral Provider. She has been volunteering in this role for 20 years, and she is so appreciated by those licensed home providers that she works with. Penny has also been licensed and has provided Home Childcare for 38 years! Here is what others have to say about Penny: She is family oriented and self-sacrificing with her own family and all the families whom she provides care for. Plus she always seems to have so much fun, just full of love and laughter.

Penny wants to recognize her husband and his support over the years with her staying in the business of childcare. Although her business has been closed since the COVID shut-down in March 2020, she hopes to open back up soon. She enjoys caring for kids so much, her home and yard has been transformed and has made it the perfect set-up for childcare. Her home has also been featured in the JCCCA Tour of Homes twice. Penny has so many fond memories of crafting, park visits, holiday parties, cooking with kids--usually cookies during the holidays--and sharing life with lots of different families. She has a picture of 20 kids all dressed up for a Halloween party. Three licensed home daycares got together for a party when her sister and her daughter were doing childcare in their homes also--so much fun!! Penny has 4 children, 8 grand-children, and 1 great-grandchild this year.
