The Journey of an Accredited Provider is the true story of one woman’s bold crusade to offer the highest quality care for children in her home while overcoming daunting obstacles. Angela Bayer-Persico, self-reliant from an early age, transcends her entanglement in an abusive relationship to raise her children with loving attention while transforming her home into a nurturing setting for the lucky little ones who enter her door. Through self-education and relentless determination, Bayer-Persico creates an award-winning environment for the children in her care. She recognizes that a high-quality program during a child’s early years has lasting positive effects, such as elevated confidence and boosted academic achievements later in life. Childcare providers may gain imaginative strategies and practical advice, including actual contracts and policies, in order to create their own high-quality childcares. All readers will benefit from the author’s hard-earned, real-world wisdom and advice.

Angela H. Bayer-Persico has run in-home childcares accredited by the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC) since 1999 in Pennsylvania and New York. In 2006, she was named the Teacher of the Year recipient by the Terri Lynn Lokoff Foundation. She was the only national winner of the National Teacher Leadership award by the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC) and High Reach in 2007. The Pennsylvania Child Care Association (PACCA) in October 2008 named her Educator of the Year. She earned an MS in Early Childhood Studies with a specialization in Teaching Adults in Early Education. She resides in New York with her loving five children and loving husband along with their many prized pets.

When Ray first entered the publishing industry, authors relied on “vanity presses” to produce their work – many of whom would charge $15,000 or more and leave the author’s garage filled with hundreds of books. Ray, along with coworker Alan Harris, joined forces with Miles Nelson to create Dog Ear Publishing to provide the author community a self-publisher with a heart. The group’s application of new technologies and publishing on demand reduced the cost of publishing a book to a fraction of what it had been for previous generations; authors now have the ability to publish a book in as little as six weeks and print as few as a single copy.
