TESTIMONIALStarling Branch Amy Straiton Bexley Ohio
“As an employer of several different child care professionals over the years we can truly say that Amy Straiton was our best hire. Amy worked around our schedules when needed, she was contentious, kind, and patient with our children. She worked well with us and we didn’t have to repeat instructions. We always knew our children were safe when they were with Amy and she was great about finding creative projects to do with the children and finding nearby parks or libraries to occupy their time. Amy truly cares about our children and became part of our family. Amy was a fantastic help to us as a family and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for care for their children.”
– Henry and Julie C.

I am the oldest of 8 children, I love the outdoors, I am very creative, and love anything artsy! My latest interest has been cakes – Birthday, graduation, baby showers, etc. I also love music and play piano, violin, and the flute. I have also written several songs of my own!
