My name is Jazmin Rochez. I am the CEO/Founder of Skip hop and Jump Day Care. I have been a certified childcare provider since 2013.
While working as a provider, I have explored other areas of study related to childcare so that my team and I can meet our children's needs. I love my chosen profession; there is no more incredible feeling than knowing that you helped in a child's learning development and growth. Before becoming a provider, I was a Quality Assurance specialist for over six years and transitioning from one position to the other wasn't hard.
I love to see the expression of a child who has just discovered something new for the first time and when they can perform a new skill without assistance. I have cared for children most of my life in one fashion or another, from family members, neighbor's children, and children in the community. As a professional childcare provider, I strive to improve the quality of care I provide to our clients.
Obtaining the trust of our clients is our priority. Through the years, it has given us gratification to know how parents and family members have incorporated us as part of their extended family. Our parents can rely on us to help them meet the challenges of work and parenting. We provide and create an environment that balances warmth and security with nurturing care and a solid educational program.
