This is how Kathy Stolhanske, Director of Endless Journey Child Care in Rochester, Minnesota, describes her role with families she has worked with over the years. “I just love being a part of the lives of young children as they grow and develop. I also enjoy being part of the ‘extended family’ of the children, as we involve the whole family in our program.”
