I’m Laura Trice and I live in Beavercreek with my husband Gary, and Maggie the weim (dog) and Jack the cat.

We have 1 son who lives in Tecoma, WA. I love gardening and quilting. I have enjoyed working in childcare since 2001 and love to teach.

Mrs. Debbie 

I have worked in faith-based childcare for over 28 years. I enjoy getting to share Jesus with the children. They are such little sponges that so enjoy learning and exploring. I have been blessed to be married to my husband for 46 years and we have 4 grown children and 15 grandchildren. In my spare time I enjoy reading and attending my grandchildren’s sporting events.
