My name is Alecia McDermott. I have 2 wonderful children. Carter is 10 and Aubree is 6. In my free time, I love to go camping, fishing, anything outdoors really, watch my son play baseball or basketball, and watch my daughter do gymnastics.
I have been working for a child care center for 1 year before coming here. I love working with all the children but the “baby room” is my favorite! I am a certified lead teacher and CPR trained. Also, I have taken the Shaken Baby and SIDS course. I will continue to take classes and attend trainings to learn new things about children.
Any questions, please feel free to stop in to ask and if there is anything else I can do to help your child, please let me know!! Cant’s wait to get to know everyone and watch these children grow.!

We also have a new baby girl, Tarah. We have 3 pets, a beagle (Luci) and 2 cats (Veke & Eve). My family and I live a very simple life and enjoy BBQ’s in the summer and sledding in the winter.
I just recently started working at JFM and am excited for my new opportunity. I am CPR, First Aid and AED certified.

I look forward to working with your children and communicating with you on a daily basis.
