I’ve worked for Bobbie Noonan’s Child Care for 26 years.  I love what I do!  I taught 3’s and 4’s for 17 years before working in the office.  I enjoy going to work every day to see my students, parents and co-workers.  (We are like a little family.) As a director you wear many hats, but it’s a great adventure every day and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  – Debbie Ryan
