Not a Garage Any More

A year ago the present room that Pat Jund uses for his Kids Count Day Care was a garage.  Pat & his wife Mary have done most of the improvements themselves.  Pat states he will be full this fall.  He is allowed 7 full & 2 part time children under his family care licence, but is planning to get a group license.  He has  walk-in inspections about 3-4 times a year, plus frequent meal inspections. corner of the room is divided off for little ones & has a changing table in it.  For kids a little older Pat has many videos & games, but states that during the summer they spend a lot of time outside.  Pat has a cart that he takes kids for a ride in.  When I checked out the drum set Pat said he had drums from Guatemala, Morocco, Africa, & Mexico that the kids play.  Pat also teaches drums to youth & adults.
