My name is Sonja. I came from my native country, Croatia, to NY in January, 2000. Before coming to the U.S., I was an Artist, Art and Design Teacher, and Art & Book Shop Owner. After leading a dynamic life in Croatia, suddenly I was a Stay-At-Home-Mom.
I instantly fell in love with children's passion and natural creativity and new horizons opened in front of me. I finished a Child Day Care Manager Course while helping in my daughter's Day Care. During that time, my second daughter was born.
I started studying Early Childhood Education. Now I was also taking care of the preschool children in the morning and tutoring school - age kids in the afternoon. I enjoyed being a teacher again.
At that time, the idea was already there, but the conditions were not. When we moved from NY to NJ in July 2008, Early Arts Family Child Care Home was finally born.

teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river
flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the
water. Through an active, reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen
learning how to learn.'
