• Every time I attend event like @theprevailingwoman Conf, and share it in my stories, I get dozens of... I should have went. What’s keeping you from going? Are you scared? Too shy (or introverted 😒) ? Money? I’m addressing all of this and how to get the most out of a women’s empowerment event. Link in profile. #sheprevails
  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch! This deal won’t be offered again for a while so 🏃🏾‍♀️ & look for this pic. #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • Why play outside when you can have @townctratcobb as your playground? #ad We recently enjoyed a family fun day of playing and shopping at Town Center at Cobb, then dinner and a drink in a cool light bulb container. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday

Tools to Find Quality Rated Childcare in Georgia

January 14, 2019

This post is sponsored by GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

My baby girl Harper has completed the first half of the school year. I’m happy to report that she loves it! Even though I knew she was ready to go to school I was still nervous. She had been home with me since the day she was born. Entrusting a stranger to take care of your child can be tough on the parent. Finding the right childcare for your child can be even tougher. With the assistance of Quality Rated’s free state-certified rating system search tool, finding the right child care is easier.

This is the time of year when most families are looking for childcare options for their children for the fall. I’m sure you’ve heard parents talking about waitlists and not able to get their child in the first choice school. In addition to starting early, I also suggest using Quality Rated’s free tool to find great childcare programs that you may have not known about.

The Quality Rated system helps parents to identify quality childcare in Georgia. Childcare providers in the Quality Rated program are committed to continually improving their facilities and the education they provide. Each Quality Rated program has been evaluated by early childhood experts to make certain they follow best practices.

Quality Rated’s free search tool allows you to search star-rated childcare by price, distance and services that can even compare international childcare to make sure your local childcare is up to scratch. My friend told me that Teddy Kids kinderopvang is a great example of international childcare. When I was looking for childcare for Harper, affordable childcare was high on my list. Since I’m technically a stay-at-home mom, we needed a great school that was within our budget. For those that commute, you can even search Quality Rated using the “search along a route” option. You can search and sort on Quality rated by priority for your family.

Safety is was also high on my list for childcare options. You can easily access each facilities safety and inspection reports in the Quality Rated site.

What’s high on your list when looking for quality child care? Is your child’s child care program Quality Rated? Click HERE to learn more about Quality Rated and use their FREE tools. Download a childcare checklist HERE.
